“Patty’s Picks” this week have a little something for everyone!
Patty Spitler of Great Day TV joined us today with a preview and her reviews for “Turning Red,” “The Adam Project” and “Belfast.” Here’s more from her:
“Turning Red” is a Disney animation at its finest with a lesson to learn. Meet Mi, a young gal with an overprotective mother. The problem the young lady has is that she is very very sensitive and when she gets too excited, poof! She turns into a giant red panda! This coming-of-age film is streaming now on Disney+ streaming today.
Runtime: 1 hour 40 minutes Rating: PG.
“The Adam Project”
“The Adam Project” is a big-budget film that is witty, entertaining and fun.
It stars Ryan Reynolds as a time-traveling fighter pilot who accidentally crash-lands in 2022. There he discovers his 12-year-old self and together they are on a mission to save the world in the future. This movie is now streaming on Netflix.
Runtime: 1 hour 46 minutes Rating: PG-13
“Belfast” is already winning awards and is a critical favorite. Director Kenneth Branagh’s semi-autobiographical take on growing up in Northern Ireland in the war-torn, tough late ’60s. This film was released last November to get it out in time for award season, but there will be a special showing on St. Patrick’s Day at the Living Room Theaters.
Rating: PG-13 Runtime: 1 hour 38 minutes

This is truly a breakthrough year as this is one of the first festivals in the world to showcase these award contenders.
Heartland Film has announced a star-studded lineup of Event titles and 128 feature films – 10 World Premieres and 9 U.S, Premieres – for the 30th Anniversary of the Heartland Film International Film Festival (HIFF), running October 7 – 17.

“After three decades, the Heartland International Film Festival has cemented itself as a major awards season stop while continuing to showcase impactful independent features from around the world,” said Heartland Film Artistic Director Greg Sorvig. “Our team has worked hard to curate a program for this special milestone, and the caliber and variety of these titles will thrill both new and long-time attendees.”

Every one of our fourteen Event films has either premiered at Venice, Telluride or the Toronto Film Festival. (In past years we might have 2-3 Event films compared to 14 this year!)
Telluride is one of the top festivals in the world and we have about a quarter of the films from their lineup which really speaks how our festival is growing in prominence. Indy has a lot to look forward to for our 30th Anniversary!
