Film Friday: ‘Son of Rambow’, ‘Speed Racer’

Don't let that big, effects-driven action film steal your spending money this weekend, it's nothing compared to what I have to call one of the year's most original films.

Other new films include Speed Racer with its slow plot, the Hollywood comedy What Happens In Vegas, and a true Canadian drama, The Stone Angel.
