Friday, August 12, 2011

Every Friday we talk about new movies here at The Takeaway. This weekend’s big releases are “The Help,” which centers on black domestic workers in Mississippi in the 1960s and the white women they work for; “30 Minutes or Less,” a bank-robbery action film; and “The Guard,” an Irish indie cop film, featuring Don Cheadle as an American FBI agent.

Rafer Guzman and Kristen Meinzer, our resident film critics and "Movie Date" podcast hosts, speak with us. In addition to hosting the podcast, Guzman is a film critic for Newsday and Meinzer is a producer for the Takeaway.
