The Great Depression hits home for nine year old Kit Kittredge when her dad loses his business and leaves to find work. Oscar nominee Abigail Breslin stars as Kit, leading a splendid cast in the first ever "American Girl" theatrical movie. In order to keep their home, Kit and her mother must take in boarders - paying house - guests who turn out to be full of fascinating stories. When mother's lockbox containing all their money is stolen, Kit's new hobo friend Will is the prime suspect. Kit refuses to believe that Will would steal, and her efforts to sniff out the real story get her and friends into big trouble. The police say the robbery was an inside job, committed by someone they know. So if it wasn't Will, then who did it.
Set in Cincinnati at the height of the Great Depression, Kit Kittredge, a resourceful young girl, helps her mother run a boardinghouse after her father loses his job. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Catherine N (br) wrote: At first I thought Cronenberg's cool dystopian film about a financial currency speculator was going into the realm of Darren Aranoffsky's "Pi." Unfortunately, no such luck. Some gobbledygook about money taking over time and yards, yada, yada, Twilight's Patterson is about to have his brains blown out by a down on his luck, confused and bitter Paul Giamatti, who plays the calm but well. Ah, David Cronenenberg, no more Gynological instruments for mutant women, like in the good old days? A notch above mere pretentious

I saw this documentary at its premiere at the Chicago Underground Film Festival and was blown away, by the music, by Dickerson's gentle flamboyance and indomitability, by the filmmakers' experimental spirit. A must-see.

As well as the fore mentioned the film is overall great in every aspect. The entire film takes place in a trendy NY Italian restaurant, it captures the essence and movement of the restaurant business to perfection. The films slow motion shots through the cook line to capture the action shows the pure affinity for food and is conveyed with great care. Give this film a chance, it will immediately capture your interest and leave you in awe until the last course.

He's so convincing as this character that when he does all those stupid things with women you don't wanna kill him; you actually feel sorry for him in the end. He's not a bad guy, he just can't help falling in love with women and don't think about the consequences of his actions. He eventually learns with his mistakes and the song "Old Habits Die Hard" express his story brilliantly. Alfie really touched me with its soundtrack and performances.
