October 5: Chicken with Plums
An imported delicacy that, though marinated in weltschmerz, manages to be more savory than cloying. From Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud, directors of Persepolis (2007).
— Steven G. Kellman

October 12: Searching for Sugarman
The incredible story of Rodríguez, a largely forgotten singer-songwriter from Detroit in the early '70s who somehow manages to become an idol in South Africa and has now reached number 3 in Billboard's Heatseekers charts.

October 19: Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel
Fascinating documentary on columnist/editor Diana Vreeland (Harper's Bazaar, Vogue), one of the most influential figures in the history of fashion. Her autobiography, D.V., is a veritable Bible for fashionistas over 30.

Also opening: Pitch Perfect, October 5.
All movies at the Bijou.
