Day 14 begins the back-half of the Seattle International Film Festival - today's schedule features films about a woman with a flower growing in her heart, two women who refuse to back down and an immature twentysomething's impact on a normal family.
7 p.m. PT at the Harvard Exit (tickets are on stand-by), with a follow-up screening May 31.
"A Street in Palermo" -- Two women enter a metaphorical life-and-death struggle after their cars, travelling in opposite directions, block a narrow Italian street ... with neither woman willing to back down. (watch the trailer)
8:30 p.m. PT at the SIFF Uptown.
"Happy Christmas" -- Filmmaker Joe Swanberg ("Drinking Buddies," "V/H/S") wrote, directed and also stars in this comedy about the havoc an irresponsible sister (Anna Kendrick) reeks upon her brother's happy, quiet home life. Melanie Lynskey, Mark Webber and Lena Dunham also star. (watch the trailer)
