Citizen Ruth


(Alexander Payne, 1996).
Alexander Payne’s something-to-offend-everyone debut feature is coarser in its character-driven comedy than Election, About Schmidt, or Sideways but taking the abortion issue as the subject for social satire was a bold move and setting it in deepest Nebraska even bolder still. Laura Dern gives her career performance in the title role.

Wednesdays-Fridays, 1:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 29. Continues through Oct. 31, 2008
