A “family friendly” clue for Savannah’s Director’s Choice – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell On its Facebook page this morning, The Savannah Film Festival organizers ask, “Any guesses at what tonight’s Director’s Choice is going to be?”

Well, now that you mention it, yes. Yes, I do have a few educated guesses as to what film SAVFF audiences might be enjoying tonight at the Trustees Theater.

Looking over this year’s schedule, I’m seeing strong representation from The Weinstein Company. Michel Hazanavicius’s black-and-white “The Artist” opened the fest last Saturday to overall raves. Ralph Fiennes’ “Coriolanius” screened earlier this week. Could we see another Weinstein film in the coveted Friday evening slot? If so, I’d lean toward “My Week with Marilyn,” which opens later this month.

Speaking with a few attendees over breakfast this morning in The Marshall House, there’s hope for Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants,” which has been active on the film festival circuit and features an Oscar-worthy performance by the amazing George Clooney.

But I’ve been told by someone who is – I’ll just say “in the know” – that tonight’s movie will be “family friendly,” and that parents might want to get there early with their children.

Great tease. Could it be Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo?” The upcoming “Muppets” movie? “Happy Feet 2” or the charming, animated “Arthur Christmas?” “A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas?”

OK, probably not the latter. But the aforementioned “family friendly” titles are fair game. See you tonight at Trustees.
