Movie Natters: September 28, 2007 Archive

Weekend ahead! "Feast" "Manhattan" and "Mumblecore!"

Posted at 12:29 PM on September 28, 2007 by Euan Kerr

There's a lot to squeeze in on the Twin Cities film front this weekend. There's a slew of new films opening, but one I am really keen to see is "Feast of Love" based on Charles Baxter's novel of the same name. It is a great read and I'm intrigued how it will translate to the screen.

Then there is the Manhattan Short Film Festival making its appearance in Minneapolis on Saturday: it's a chance to be part of an international film jury as audience members at the Oak Street vote on 12 movies of 12 minutes or less.

And of course, also at the Oak, director Aaron Katz and actor Sarah Hellman (above) will introduce "Quiet City," the mumblecore movie which drew raves at South by Southwest and from the New York Times. (Just for the record, they don't really like the term 'mumblecore' either.) We'll be airing an interview with them this evening on "All Things Considered."
