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. We’ve got Andy Garcia’s indie comedy City Island, Ben Stiller’s indie dramedy Greenberg, and Kristen Stewart & Dakota Fanning teaming up for the indie rock saga The Runaways. Take a closer look at these three films below.


City Island
Buy tickets at Fandango!
Andy Garcia is the patriarch of a family on an isolated suburban island off of Manhattan who works as a prison guard, living with his dissatisfied wife (Julianna Margulies) and his snarky fetishist son (Ezra Miller), while his daughter (Dominik Garcia-Lorido) tells them she’s in college when she’s actually working as a stripper. When he starts to secretly take an acting class with Emily Mortimer and Alan Arkin, and then brings home his secret illegitimate son (Steven Strait) from prison, misunderstandings pile up quickly until he is forced to confront all their little white lies.

Greenberg

Ben Stiller is Roger Greenberg, a misanthropic carpenter and ex-musician drifting through his life and dog-sitting for his brother Philip in Los Angeles, who strikes up an unlikely relationship with Phil’s personal assistant Florence Marr (Greta Gerwig), a struggling singer herself, after trying to restart his life and reconnect with old friends doesn’t turn out the way he’d hoped.

The Runaways

Kristen Stewart makes a splash playing Joan Jett, and Dakota Fanning breaks all the rules as Cherie Currie, the founding members of The Runaways, the seminal all-female band that paved the way for women to rock out as hard as men. Michael Shannon also stars as their enigmatically creepy and driven manager, Kim Fowley.
