Ballet Shoes, based on the novel by Noel Streatfield, is supposed to be already released in the U.S. (limited release August 26th). However, I can’t find any place showing the movie in the Houston area.
Igor (PG) â€“ September 19. An animated feature from a new company, Exodus Productions. Igor thinks he can win the science fair and decides to try in spite of ridicule and persecution.
The Tale of Despereaux (not yet rated) â€“ December 19. I still haven’t read the Newbery Award winning book that is the source for this movie. Maybe it’s time I picked it up at the library.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (PG-13) — November 7. Another book I’ve read reviews of but haven’t actually read. The reviews were mixed.
