MIAMI FILM FESTIVAL
Friday 3/9 to Sunday 3/18
Cost for films: $10-$13
One of the world’s premiere international film festivals returns in our hometown. They kick off the festival with their opening night film: “Tully” starring Charlize Theron. In their third collaboration (after the Oscar-winning Juno and Young Adult), director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody take bold, uncharted risks by giving voice to our unspoken desires. Tully is an edgy comedy of recognition and a wistful ode to the youth we all once possessed – and get further away from every passing day.
