Movies opening this week

Vera Drake (Imelda Staunton, Phil Davis, Alex Kelly, dir. Mike Leigh)
My review in Las Vegas Weekly
I guess Oscar nominations are good for something, because after months of delays this is finally opening in Vegas. It's an excellent film, tough to watch at times but absolutely worth the effort. I've yet to see any of Leigh's other movies, but I've got All or Nothing in my NetFlix queue and I'm sure I'll add more soon. Of course this deserved more nominations than it got, but for the tangible positive effect they're having, I'm grateful for anything at all. Opened limited Oct. 10; in Las Vegas this week
