Members of the Philadelphia Film Society packed into Ritz East yesterday evening to get a sneak preview of SAVAGES, the latest film from director Oliver Stone. This film will not be released to the public until later this week, but already seems to be stirring much attraction. There was not an empty seat in the theatre, and this film provoked the crowd to laugh, cover their eyes, and gasp all at the same time.
Last Wednesday, the Philadelphia Film Society held a preview screening of Moonrise Kingdom,the ninth film of acclaimed director, Wes Anderson. The latest installment from the director that brought us The Royal Tennenbaums and Fantastic Mr. Fox, traces two committed youngsters, Sam and Suzy on their adventure to run awayfrom their misunderstood lives, so they can be hidden away from the rest of the world on the small, rocky Rhode Island beach cove they have named together, Moonrise Kingdom.
