Friday movie roundup – Nov. 30

This is the weekend that Hollywood forgot. Only one new film is opening in wide release today, and it’s a totally off-the-radar thing that wasn’t even screened for critics. It’s called “Awake.” It’s about a guy who becomes alert and aware during surgery. How this gets stretched into a movie, I don’t know.

I have a review of “Margot at the Wedding,” which is playing in limited release.

And that’s it! It’s a slow weekend. Next week we have “Atonement” and “The Golden Compass,” so that should liven things up a bit.
