Biutiful: January 28 (limited engagement)
Liddle Entertainment and Roadside Attractions team up to provide a limited theatrical run to this Spanish production, starring Javier Bardem as Uxbal, a “dour man but a devoted husband and father who, thanks to his ability to read the minds of the recently deceased, ekes out a living in Barcelona.” Reaction at festival screenings (Cannes, Telluride, Toronto) was not overwhelming, but Badem earned good notices. The genre element is small, so don’t expect to see a scary movie about someone who sees dead people.
Release Date: January 28
BIUTIFUL received an exclusive, Oscar-qualifying run in New York and Los Angeles, starting on December 29.
