Suggesting a Suggests

Posted by on June 27 at 17:20 PM

Today’s Stranger Suggests is for a movie at the Varsity called The Holy Girl. I second the recommendation. I saw the movie last night, and indeed, it’s a gem. The main characters inexplicably live and work on site at a doctors’ convention in a hotel. In an era when filmmakers are otherwise obsessed with pulling back the curtain on the suburbs, this creepy world of life in a hotel is extra startling. (Varsity, 4329 University Way NE, 781-5755. Playing in the eve at 7:10 or 9:40)

Also at the movies: Greg Araki’s Mysterious Skin at The Harvard Exit (807 E. Roy, 781-5755) See it now!
