An Oscar winner comes to town — finally

(OK, I really am tempted to just leave the Emma Thompson clip up at the top of the blog all weekend, because it’s so very wonderful — I watched it again this morning, and it’s just as funny a second time — but all good things must come to an end, even celebrations of Emma Thompson’s birthday. But do check it out if you’ve missed it.)
When the Argentinian film “The Secrets in Their Eyes (El secreto de sus ojos)” won the Oscar for best foreign language film last month, a lot of us in Seattle — and elsewhere — raised an eyebrow: It hadn’t played here (not even at a festival screening, far as I know), unlike better-known nominees like “The White Ribbon” or “A Prophet,” and was a surprise win. But our curiosity can finally come to an end: The movie, which looks like a nicely literate thriller, opens in NY/LA this weekend, and will arrive in Seattle May 7 (tentatively scheduled to play at the Harvard Exit). And here’s the trailer:

I’m off until Tuesday; see you then. May your weekend be filled with sunshine (filmic or otherwise).
