Good Night and Good Luck

I have not heard an audience applaud a film (outside of film festivals) since I saw Chicago. Spontaneous applause was the finale at a screening of Good Night and Good Luck today! This is the story of Edward R. Murrow, taking on Joe McCarthy and unfair accusations of communism. A wonderful film that was both dramatic and informative. The performances were outstanding, the photography amazing ... well done, Mr. Clooney!!

Any idea why they won't release it every where? I have been dying to see it but it has yet to come to area.

Not sure why this is on so few screens, it was in a small arthouse here for 2 weeks before it hit the mutiplex. Maybe trying to build word of mouth. Worth waiting for!
