The Latest in Theaters: Four for the Fourth

It's the Fourth of July weekend, so time to go see the latest Will Smith movie, right? Wrong. According to GLAAD, Smith's titular superhero Hancock utters some nasty homophobic slurs in this latest Hollywood blockbuster.

So, instead of supporting such a movie, how about you turn this Independence Day weekend into a true "Independents" day, with four films opening in limited release around the country:
  • The Wackness: Ben Kingsley blazing up a doobie? Mary-Kate Olsen in another pot-themed story so soon after Weeds? Dude ... sweet. Also stars Josh Peck, Famke Janssen and Olivia Thirlby, Juno's other "it girl".
  • Kabluey: Scott Prendergast wrote, directed and stars as a blue guy with a big head in this festival fave; Lisa Kudrow, Christine Taylor, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Conchata Ferrell and Teri Garr (welcome back!) co-star in the comedy.
  • Diminished Capacity: Matthew Broderick, seen just last week tracking down his prostitute niece in Finding Amanda, is now hooking up with his Alzheimer's-impaired uncle Alan Alda. Virginia Madsen and Bobby Cannavale also star.
  • Holding Trevor: Brent Gorski wrote and stars in this gay romantic drama, co-starring Shortbus' Jay Brannan. Click here to read Chris' review of the film, opening in Los Angeles and New York.
