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. Son of Rambow falls into the quirky category that often gets far too little attention, despite having an original story to tell. 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.
