'The Secret of the Grain' at Egyptian

Almost certainly the best movie in SIFF 2008, Abdellatif Kechiche's follow-up to Games of Love & Chance burrows into a tight-knit Tunisian immigrant community in a small port town in the south of France. From 61-year-old Slimane, thrown against his will into a twilight career change, to his sort-of stepdaughter Rym, who's gorgeous and assertive enough to charm elderly musicians and inebriated bureaucrats alike, the characters are fantastic. Kechiche is one of SIFF's "Emerging Masters," but at this point? He's done emerging. He's a goddamn butterfly. (Egyptian Theatre, 801 E Pine St, 6 pm, $11.)
