Movies This Weekend: The Class, Watchmen 

Only two new movies hit local theaters today, but both are heavyweights in their respective worlds: A "Best Foreign Language Film" Oscar winner and Palm D'Or winner at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, The Class recounts a year in the life of a Parisian middle-school teacher and his unruly charges. Dead Poets Society this ain't. Critic/high-school teacher Addison Engelking calls it the best school-themed movie ever made. Read his rave here.

Comic-book lover Greg Akers is more circumspect about this week's multiplex epic, Watchmen, an adaptation of the highly regarded 1980s' comic series. Read Greg's take here.

Finally, the two-part screening of Steven Soderbergh's Che wraps up at the Brooks Museum Sunday. Read Engelking's take here.
