Women at the Box Office This Weekend

Opening This Weekend
Persepolis - English language version, co-directed by Marjane Satrapi - I loved the French version so I'm sure it's just as good in English since the directors worked with the actors in the same way to make the English version. SEE THIS MOVIE!
Here's my review: Persepolis

Remaining In Theatres
Nim's Island (which I will be checking out this weekend)- has anyone else noticed how low-key this release has been?
Under the Same Moon
My Blueberry Nights- Norah Jones (the singer) stars in this film about a young woman trying to get over her obsession with an ex-boyfriend by going on the road and meeting up with other people equally as obsessed as she is. Co-stars David Strathairn, Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman and Jude Law. The film has an amazing soundtrack with songs by Cat Power, Jones and Cassandra Wilson.) (NY & LA)
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
The Other Boleyn Girl
Jellyfish (NY)

Directed by a Woman, not starring a Woman
