RELEASES! The ides of March (2011) | BASIC CLASSICS! Gigi (1958)March 8, 2012
In regard to releases this is not a glorious weekend. There is only a remarkable release, George Clooney’s comeback like director (and actor). It is not his debut, he was a great success in 2005 with the story about Joseph McCarthy and the CBS journalist Edward R. Murrow, a movie calls Good night, Good luck. Programming of musical films in CBA coming to an end so I recommend the last one, Gigi, a film directed by one of the best directors of musicals: Vicente Minelli (married with Gudy Garld, so he is Liza Minelli’s father) with ¡nine Oscars! (when this prizes had prestige). Enjoy them!
