Movies for this week

I’ve Loved You So Long
After 15 years in prison Juliette (Kristin Scott Thomas) is welcomed into her younger sister Lea’s (Elsa Zylberstein) home and life. Meanwhile everyone else in Juliette’s life seems suspicious of her past and accusations of infanticide. But did she ever commit a crime? An intense and well written script that seems to roll along at a steamroller pace. Raw and powerful in a way that only French or independent cinema seems capable of. I’ve loved You So Long is rated PG-13.

Pride and Glory
Several generations of a family in law enforcement are challenged in their beliefs and morals when a nasty police scandal is slowly exposed. Edward Norton, Collin Farrell, Noah Emmerich and John Voight star in this long, drawn out, and cliche cop drama that boldly goes nowhere new or interesting. However, despite a dry script, the acting still holds strong which makes for a thin silver veneer. Pride and Glory is rated R.

High School Musical 3
Disney’s High School Musical franchise returns once again, this time for Senior year. Now faced with the prospect of heading off in different directions for college Troy (Zac Efron) and Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens) reflect on their experiences, their hopes, and their fears of the future. High School Musical 3 is rated G.

Saw V
The traditions of Jigsaw the murdering puzzle master continue in this fifth installment of Saw; but, will Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) be able to continue this grim game? Saw V is rated R.
