Miami Beach Cinematheque to the rescue
With the documentary Herb & Julia and Tilda Swinton's thriller Julia, the Miami Beach Cinematheque saves the weekend ... cinematically speaking.
An otherwise lackluster weekend at the multiplex has us in search of viable cinema. Thankfully, the Wolfsonian is coming strong with commies (see below) and, just down the street, MBC offers up two solid selections.
First is the enchanting documentary Herb & Dorothy, about a quirky couple of limited means - one is a postal worker, the other a librarian - who have amassed an eclectic, world class art collection. Dig the trailer above.
Second, Tilda Swinton stars in Julia, a harrowing thriller about an alcoholic, train wreck-of-a-woman who kidnaps a kid in a bribery scheme that unravels faster than she can keep up.
