New Releases - Nov. 7th Edition

Get 'em while they're hot!

Atlas Shrugged: Part 1
A film 40 years in the making, this is the first in what will (in theory) be a trilogy based on the 1957 novel by Ayn Rand. It is 2016 and the United States is in a sustained economic depression. A powerful railroad executive struggles to keep her business alive while society is crumbling around her.

The Change-up
Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds star in this body-swap comedy. A married father accidentally switches bodies with his best friend, leading to a series of wildly complex difficulties. Fun trivia: Most of the female nudity in the film is not real. Computer-generated breasts were used for both Olivia Wilde and Leslie Mann.

Hot Coffee
Remember the old lady who sued McDonald's (and won over $2 million) after spilling coffee on herself? Directed by Susan Saladoff who was a medical malpractice attorney of 26 years, Hot Coffee is a 2011 documentary film that analyzes and discuses the impact of tort reform (personal injury common law) on the United States judicial system.
