The Indie Memphis Film Festival continues today with a screening of ambitious local feature Eat
, from Automusik Can Do No Wrong
director C. Scott McCoy. (See Flyer story.
) But the highlight of todays slate might be Old Joy
, a well-reviewed indie feature from writer-director Kelly Reichardt that follows two friends (Will Oldham and Daniel London) who reunite for a weekend camping trip in Oregons Cascade mountain range and confront where they are in their divergent lives. Old Joy
is set for an official release next month, but since a local theatrical run seems like a longshot, this might be your only chance to see it on the big screen at 7 p.m. at Muvicos Peabody Place theatre. The New York Times
has called it one of the years best films. For more information on the Indie Memphis Film Festival, see the festival Web site
