Some local seven and eight year old golfers, including one with a famous last name, are featured in a documentary about youngsters who are competing for an international tourney. Also, Hugh Jackman goes medieval. These films and more are reviewed by critic Hap Erstein with PalmBeachArtsPaper.com.
"Prisoners" - Hugh Jackman plays a different role this time, as the father of one of two girls who are kidnapped. He catches the guy whom he believes did it, holds him and tortures him. It's a pretty violent film, but Hap likes it.
"Battle of the Year" - Looks like the "Step Up" for break dancing. Got teens? They may enjoy this one starring R&B/Hip Hop star Chris Brown.
"Thanks for Sharing" - A star-studded cast featuring Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo and Tim Robbins. It's a drama which Hap says is about a sex addict (Ruffalo). Enjoy.
