Film Fan Fridays for Friday April 13, 2007!!!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

What a week!! 6 films, 4 festivals and a special screening, oh my! I think my pick of the week would have to be After the Wedding, which received an Oscar nomination for Best foreign language film of the year. Or the Canadian Sleeping Dogs. Or Pathfinder with Karl Urban (who played Eomer in Lord of the Rings). So many films to choose from, so little time!
