April.30(Sat) - May.13(Sat) American Movies "THE RUNAWAYS" & "A SERIOUS MAN"

Two American movies are now showing at Salon Cinema.
(About 30mins by tram from J-Hoppers Hiroshima)

●●●● THE RUNAWAYS ●●●●
2010 American bio-pic about the 1970s all-girl rock band of the same name. The film was written and directed by Floria Sigismondi, who based the screenplay on the book Neon Angel: A Memoir of a Runaway by the band's original lead vocalist Cherie Currie. Dakota Fanning plays Currie, Kristen Stewart plays rhythm guitarist and vocalist Joan Jett, and Michael Shannon plays record producer Kim Fowley. The film depicts the formation of the band in 1975 and focuses on the relationship between Currie and Jett until Currie's departure from the band.

Musical bio-pics are usually pretty crap, but often quite good fun, and this one seems to got quite a few approving nods from critics.

May 7-May 13 at 12:30 and 19:00●●

●●●● A SERIOUS MAN ●●●●

Very well received dark comedy by the Cohen brothers.
