Weekend Film Agenda: November 28, Turkey Coma Edition


  • After you’ve finished feeding your body with your Thanksgiving leftovers, head down to SIFF Cinema and feed your mind with Louise Bourgeoise: The Spider, the Mistress and the Tangerine, an intimate look at a larger-than-life figure of the art world who has been at the forefront of new development for 60 years. Bourgeoise’s passionate nature leads to passionate, provocative works with an immeasurable impact on the art world.
  • SIFF’s Saturday morning Films4Families selection is the delightful Mary Poppins in which a luminous Julie Andrews portrays the subversively charming nanny who effortlessly brightens the lives of everyone around her.
  • NWFF offers up Frontrunners, an examination of the hotly contested election season at Stuyvesant, NYC’s high school for the “gifted” students. Alumni of the school include people like Tim Robbins, Jimmy Cagney, Thelonious Monk, Lucy Liu and a host of politicians, business people and Nobel prize winners. You just might be watching one of the future captains of industry grab his or her first brass ring.
  • The Grand Illusion warms you up for the forthcoming George Bailey season with a second week of James Stewart, this time in the form of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, an endearing fantasy about a dreamer of a small town senator who finds himself pitted against the bad boys division of the good ol’ boys club. Contrary to the claims of many a candidate, there never really has been a true real life equivalent of Mr. Smith, but, boy will Stewart make you wish there was.
