See­ing what’s on be­yond the Pale

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Gerry Hough, a reader from Thurles writes to com­plain about the con­tin­u­ing dif­fi­culty of lo­cat­ing less main­stream films in cin­e­mas out­side Dublin. A few weeks back Gerry had to travel to from Tip­per­ary to the Big Smoke to catch both The White Rib­bon and (more sur­pris­ingly) the Coen broth­ers’ A Se­ri­ous Man. It is, in­deed, a strange world in which the Coens’ lat­est can open in just three screens while a low-bud­get Ir­ish com­edy such as Sit­u­a­tions Va­cant can de­but in 19.

Any­way, the good news is that, fol­low­ing old-school dis­tri­bu­tion pat­terns, A Se­ri­ous Man has now ex­panded to 15 screens na­tion­wide. It’s a bit late for Gerry, mind.
