JUNO
Directed by Jason Reitman. In Wide Release.

"Directed by Jason Reitman ("Thank You for Smoking") from a screenplay by hot newcomer and media darling Diablo Cody, whose memoir Candy Girl recounted her year as an "unlikely stripper" in Minnesota, Juno is hilarious and sweet-tempered, perceptive and surprisingly grounded. It's also a gust of fresh air, perspective-wise, in that it follows the gestational misadventures of a girl, whose hotness is not actually her most salient characteristic, from the girl's point of view."

THE BAND'S VISIT
Directed by Eran Kolirin. Opening in New York and Los Angeles.

"...this story of an Egyptian band's visit to Israel is both sweet-natured and sharply pointed, a film whose poignant, emotional effects and subtle acting sneak up on you. The first feature for writer-director Eran Kolirin, The Band's Visit has already won the Israeli equivalent of the best picture Oscar, captured the international critic's prize for the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes, and recently walked away with the best actor prize at the European Film Awards."
