The Chaperone & The Intruder to hit big screens


A fact-based drama and a paranoid thriller are on area screens this weekend.  Film critics, Chuck Koplinski and Pam Powell are back with their review.

The Chaperone

(Starts Friday) – In the late 1920’s, Kansas housewife Norma (Elizabeth McGovern) agrees to escort up-and-coming actress Louise Brooks (Haley Lu Richardson) to New York City to attend a prestigious dance academy.  It is a trip that will change both of these women as secrets and foibles of both are revealed.  While this is a highly fictionalized account, the theme of the film and the performances of all involved make for a compelling drama about acceptance and forgiveness.  An unexpected surprise.  3 1/2 Stars (Chuck Koplinski) Not Rated. 103 minutes. SAV.

The Intruder

A young married couple (Michael Ealy & Meagan Good) buy a beautiful house on several acres of land only to find out that the man (Dennis Quaid) they bought it from refuses to let go of the property. This is a standard thriller that’s nearly redeemed by its timely examination of the threatened white American male. 2 Stars (Chuck Koplinski) Rated PG-13. 102 minutes. AMC-C, AMC-D, SAV.
