Here’s what’s opening in selected cities this weekend, and as David Letterman always says, we just pray to God your city has been selected. There’s the Roman Polanski film The Ghost Writer, the Alexis Bledel rom-com The Good Guy and the indescribable Celine Dion in the concert heard ’round the world. Take a closer look at them all below.


The Ghost Writer

This is the film Roman Polanski had to finish from prison. Ewan McGregor stars as a successful ghost writer who is charged with handling the memoirs of a former British Prime Minister (Pierce Brosnan) who may or may not have committed war crimes (and who bears not a passing resemblance to Tony Blair). The resulting scandal leads him to search for the dark truth about the connection to the CIA.


The Good Guy

Alexis Bledel stars as a New York girl who finds herself in the middle of a love triangle with an upwardly-mobile Wall Street worker (Scott Porter) and his bookish friend (Bryan Greenberg), who he’s incidentally been schooling in the ways of careerism and seduction.


Celine: Through The Eyes of the World

Celine Dion mounted a worldwide string of concerts called the Taking Chances tour throughout 2008-9, and now the experience is documented. Celine is a bit of an oddball. How, you say? Watch this.
