FILM

12.1 – 12.4
The Social Network
@ Cinestudio
Hartford, CT
$8 / 730pm

A sure bet for inclusion on critics’ list of 2010’s Top Ten Films, The Social Network is a kinetic, supercharged suspense movie about the invention of Facebook. Director David Fincher, whose villains were only slightly more ruthless in his films Se7en and Zodiac, taps right into the genius, ambition and betrayal that turned one Harvard undergrad (Steve Zuckerman) into the country’s youngest billionaire; leaving some of his friends and collaborators in the dust. Along with a chilling performance by Jesse Eisenberg, there’s Justin Timberlake as Napster creator Sean Parker, and soon-to-be-stars Rooney Mara (chosen to play Lisbeth Salander in the US version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), and Andrew Garfield, the next Spiderman.

12.5 – 12.8
Waiting for Superman

@ Cinestudio
Hartford, CT
$8 / 730pm

Not since Davis Guggenheim’s last film (An Inconvenient Truth) has a documentary had the potential to get people engaged in averting catastrophe. In this case it is the inadequate and unfair education of American children, especially among the poor. Alternately scathing, matter-of-fact, and simmering with outrage, Waiting for Superman details drastic decline and also some innovative ways forward in American schools. Getting to the heart of the matter, Guggenheim follows the drama of five children hoping to win a place (by lottery) in a charter school that may make or break their futures. A must-see movie for educators, parents, policy makers, and anyone who claims to care about social change. “By showing how fiercely dedicated idealists are making a difference, it is a call to arms.” Stephen Holden, New York Times.
