An important part of the upcoming election will be how women vote. Cincinnati World Cinema is presenting the film Iron Jawed Angels, the story of suffragettes Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, who put their lives on the line to win the fight for women’s right to vote. Larry Thomas has a review of this film, which stars Hilary Swank, Frances O’Connor, Julia Ormond, Margo Martindale, Anjelica Huston and others.
Time again for the Cincinnati Film Festival! Mark Perzel welcomes Latria Roberts, director of outreach, and Kat Steele, executive director, to discuss the 3rd Annual Cincinnati Film Festival running September 6-14 at locations around town. Screenings will include the world premiere of the James Franco/Winona Ryder film The Letter and a Cincy showcase.
A few years back, Gianni Di Gregorio made a nice little film called Mid-August Lunch. Now that it’s mid-August again, here comes his follow-up feature, The Salt of Life. It’s not quite as good, but still may provide a nice summertime diversion if you’re looking for something other than the latest blockbuster or a kids movie.
