What to Watch For:  Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein co-wrote the script and directed the film. They previously wrote the scripts for He’s Just Not That Into You (2009) and The Vow (2012).

Word on the Street:  The film tested so well that the studio moved up the release date.

My Take:  I hear from other film critics that Michelle Williams steals the movie.

The film opens Friday nationwide.

What to Watch For:  The movie was partially funded with an Indieagogo (Is this correct spelling?) campaign.

Word on the Street:  It took a very long time to get this film made. The film was initially announced at 2008 San Diego Comic Con.

My Take: I find it funny that one of the rewards from the crowdfunding campaign was a trip to a ballpark with the five main actors.

The film opens nationwide on Friday.

What to Watch For: Writer/director Deon Taylor’s last film was Meet the Blacks (2016) starring Mike Epps.

Word on the Street:  Deon Taylor won the Best Feature award at the African Movie Academy Awards.

My Take:  I always like Paula Patton’s performances.

What to Watch For: The film did very well on the festival circuit, winning five awards including the Audience Award at the Provincetown International Film Festival.

Word on the Street:  The film is based on a true story.

My Take:  I’ll see anything Catherine Keener is in.

The film opens on Friday exclusively at Landmark Midtown Art Cinema
