Rattle & Reel with Lisbeth Salander

Get ready for a Rattle & Reel thriller!  The final chapter in Steig Larrson’s hugely popular trilogy is this week’s bring-your-baby-to-the-movies feature at E Street Cinema.  “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” is playing at 11am on Wednesday, November 3.  If you’re not familiar with the series, here’s the description from the Landmark Theaters website:

‘In The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest—the final installment of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy (following The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire)—Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge—against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.’

It’s a Swedish film in English subtitles, and if it’s comparable to “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” expect to be entertained.  So, if you’re looking to get out for some “you” time with your infant in tow, this flick is a good option.

Tickets are the $8 — the new bargain price on all movies showing Monday – Friday before 6pm.  Showtime is 11am.
