Anonymous (Sony Pictures): Rolan Emmerich’s latest film is something of a departure: a conspiracy drama about who actually wrote the plays of William Shakespeare, set against the backdrop of the succession of Queen Elizabeth I, and the Essex Rebellion against her. Starring Rhys Ifans, Xavier Samuel, Jamie Campbell Bower and Joely Richardson. [Nationwide / 12A]

The Help (Disney): Drama set in the American South during the era of segregation and three women who strike up an unlikely friendship. The surprise sleeper hit of the summer at the US box office, it was directed by Tate Taylor and stars Emma Stone, Mike Vogel, Bryce Dallas Howard and Viola Davis. [Nationwide / 12A]

I’m not a baseball fan, the game just isn’t for me. I wetchad Moneyball as part of a 3-film special that a local theater hosted, and Moneyball was the least anticipated film for me. Lo and behold, it turned out to be *easily* the best of the three. Though I’m still not much of a baseball fan, the movie got me really interested in the story and the game itself.
