Women at the Box Office This Weekend

New to NY and LA this weekend is A Previous Engagement a comedy starring Juliet Stevenson written and directed by Joan Carr-Wiggin. (Disclaimer- I have been working on the marketing of this film.) Read my interview with director Joan Carr-Wiggin

Then She Found Me continues its roll out to Phoenix, Denver, CT, southern FL, Atlanta, IL, Baltimore, MA, Detroit, Kansas City, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Houston.
Here's my review

Also opening in NY is The Tracey Fragments starring Ellen Page, that is getting its US release due to Page's fame. Pretty cool. Here's an analysis of this film's release that I found interesting from Karina Longworth at Spout: Tracey Fragments and the Ellen Page Conundrum

Remaining in Theatres for your viewing pleasure are:
Baby Mama
Nim's Island (which over the last month has made a respectable 42 m with a budget of 37 m)
Under the Same Moon
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

Under the radar success story: Hats off to Fay Ann Lee for self distributing her film Falling for Grace which was number 1 Harkins Camelview in Phoenix and is now in its fourth weekend there! She's looking for a national distributor. Ideas?
