Synopsis

In Archaeology of a Woman, Margaret, a feisty, tormented former newspaper columnist, fights to protect her freedom in spite of the dementia she cannot control. After an episode in a shopping plaza parking lot where she is unable to find her car and is driven home by the police, her daughter Kate, an aspiring New York City chef, is beckoned upstate to her mother's aide. While there, Kate develops a romantic tryst with a rookie officer as she deals with her mother's demands. Kate attempts to get Margaret involved with activities at the senior center, but Margaret is apprehensive and resentful. Soon, a man from Margaret's past, Sergeant Calder, re-enters her life, causing Margaret to fear she will no longer be able to protect herself. Before returning to New York, Kate installs a small surveillance camera to monitor her mom at home revealing a far more private life of fear, lust and longing and her connection to a 30-year-old crime.

Limited Releases: Skeleton Key to Box Office Success

The Skeleton Twins poster

There's a large number of limited releases, including a few that are earning good reviews and strong buzz. One of these is The Drop, but it is opening in too many theaters and I think that will hurt it at the box office. If I were to guess, The Skeleton Twins will be the biggest hit on this week's list.
