Aside from the excellent THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES (a link to my review from last week can be found below), there's nothing hugely of note opening this week - so please accept my First Quarter Five rankers (if you're in need of catching a flick this weekend).
I'll be back next Friday with a review of the new Jackie Robinson baseball movie, 42.
THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES: (A-) Stressful, yet powerful cinema.
