Independent Film Festival Boston
We’ve already profiled some of the great films you can catch at this weekend’s Independent Film Festival Boston, but lest you forget: The Somerville, Brattle and Coolidge Corner Theatres are together throwing a citywide cinematic celebration. You can find showtimes for movies at the Brattle here—we recommend you don’t miss the dark and disturbing They Look Like People and the too-cute-seeming A Brilliant Young Mind.
