An unflinching look at Thailand's underground world of child boxers - of which there are over 30,000 - BUFFALO GIRLS tells the story of two 8 year-old girls who are professional Muay Thai prizefighters. Set in small villages throughout rural Thailand, the film chronicles these young girls' journey, one that is alternately empowering and heartbreaking, as they fight in small neighborhood arenas in order to win prize-money to help provide for their families. After many months of rigorous training and a grueling schedule of fights, Stam and Pet must ultimately fight each other for the 20 Kilo championship belt of Thailand. The cash prize that goes with it will change the winner's life forever.

That film is a documentary, so even if it does perform well during its opening weekend, it likely won't find any mainstream success. All of the rest are either earning too few reviews to have a Tomatometer Score, or have overall negative reviews. Combined with the previously released Awards Season hopefuls, and there's too much competition for such weak films. More...

Limited Releases: There's Always a Silver Lining

November 16th, 2012

There's good news and bad news this week when it comes to limited releases, and both focus on the same film: Silver Linings Playbook. At the beginning of the month, this was one wide release I was really looking forward to and I thought it had a real chance of being a sleeper hit. However, it was moved up a week and is rolling out in limited release this week before expanding to select cities next week. It should be the biggest hit this week, but expanding wide is never an easy task.
