Friday’s openings redux: ‘Hollars’ but no ‘Queen’

Dan Webster

OK, change to the posed movie schedule. Though "Queen of Katwe" will be opening across the country, it is NOT opening in Spokane next week. Not, at least, at AMC River Park Square — which is usually the only mainstream local theater that bothers with other than mainstream movie fare.

Instead, another film will join "The Magnificent Seven" and "Storks" for a Friday opening:

"The Hollars": John Krasniki ("The Office") both directs and stars in this film about a disaffected New York guy who, called home because of his mother's surgery, is forced to confront both his dysfunctional past and his questionable future.

Note: This is Krasniki's second stint behind the camera. He also directed the 2009 feature "Brief Interviews With Hideous Men," which was based on a story collection by the late David Foster Wallace.

So go, see a movie. And enjoy.
