Movie Diary 4/4/2016

The Invitation (Karyn Kusama, 2015). Cool idea for low-budget suspense, about a dinner party where things go from being awkward to fully freaked-out. An amusing “only in L.A.” vibe runs throughout. (full review 4/8)

Marguerite (Xavier Giannoli, 2015). Catherine Frot plays a society lady whose horrible singing is endured because she’s got money. An interesting take (completely fictionalized, in this case) on a true-life story – the straight-up biopic of the real figure, Florence Foster Jenkins, will have to settle for Meryl Streep in the lead; that’s later this year. (full review 4/8)
