September 2014

We’re on the wrong side of Labor Day, which means it’s time to put away your summer sunglasses and break out your fall shades. It also means serious moviegoers are in luck; days aren’t the only things getting darker! Much like post-J. Lo Ben Affleck, September movies are starting to take themselves seriously --- a welcome change after a summer that offered us fare that was little better than Gigli. So toss your 3D specs and check out these fall books on screen.

Dennis Lehane, author of The Drop

Three days after Christmas, a lonely bartender looking for a reason to live rescues an abused puppy from a trash can and meets a damaged woman looking for something to believe in. As their relationship grows, they cross paths with the Chechen mafia; a man grown dangerous with age and thwarted hopes; two hapless stick-up artists; a very curious cop; and the original owner of the puppy, who wants his dog back.
