New Films Hit the Big Screen, Nov. 23
Other releases this week:
In The Ice Harvest, Charlie (John Cusack), an attorney for the sleazy businesses of Wichita, and his unsavory associate Vic Cavanaugh (Billy Bob Thornton) have just successfully embezzled $2 million from Kansas City boss Bill Guerrard (Randy Quaid). Charlie tries to leave town with stunning strip club owner Renata (Connie Nielsen), but as a storm rages on everyone becomes suspicious of Charlie's actions.
Rent follows a year in the lives of seven friends living the disappearing Bohemian lifestyle in New York's East Village. AIDS and both its physical and emotional complications pervade the lives of Roger (Adam Pascal), Mimi (Rosario Dawson), Tom (Jesse L. Martin), and Angel (Wilson Jermaine Heredia). Maureen (Idina Menzel) deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art, her partner Joanne (Tracie Thoms) wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble, Benjamin (Taye Diggs) has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends, and Mark (Anthony Rapp), an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider on life in general, always behind the camera recording the events but never playing a part.
In the Mix stars Usher as a man who accidentally saves a mob boss’s life and his reward is protecting the man’s daughter. Complications arise when the two begin to fall in love.
Yours, Mine & Ours is about a widow (Rene Russo) and widower (Dennis Quaid) who fall in love and get married, but the resulting combined eighteen children make for a hair-raising situation under one roof.
