Friday, June 22 at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. -- CARNAGE (2011) Starring Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz, John C. Reilly, and Elvis Polanski; Rated R; 80 minutes; Closed captioned for the hearing impaired.
After two boys duke it out on a playground, the parents of the “victim” invite the parents of the “bully” over to work out their issues. A polite discussion of childrearing soon escalates into verbal warfare, with all four parents revealing their true colors. None of them will escape the carnage.
"A brilliantly discomfiting comedy of frustration." -- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Foster is particularly impressive in a stridently unattractive role, as the pinched, angry liberal who's orchestrated the meeting but doesn't get quite the apology she wants." -- J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader
