Synopsis

October is the “purple month” in Lima, when the grey city’s somber tones give way to processions celebrating the Lord of Miracles. Hope is reborn among the throngs of devotees who light candles and follow the processions, each in search of their own miracle. Tucked away in one of the Lima’s modest flats lives Clemente, a small time loan shark with a penchant for reckless hookers, grave solitude, money lending and nothing else. Stuck in a shallow routine, Clemente lacks any real emotional connection to anyone. People, in turn, refer to him not by name, but as "the pawnbroker’s son.” Whether it’s a slippery counterfeiter, an amiable thief or a desperate neighbor, Clemente is sensitive only to what their business might bring him. Returning home one day, Clemente quickly realizes that an intruder has visited his home—not to steal from him, but instead to leave him with a little gift. Tucked in a small basket, sitting on his bed, Clemente finds a newborn baby, the product of one of his frequent liaisons with prostitutes. When Clemente finds himself ill-equipped for his new role, Sofia, one of his clients and an October worshipper, intervenes to help him take care of the baby while he goes in search of its mother. As the days stretch on, with Sofia and the baby sharing his home, Clemente discovers emotional attachments he never thought he had. And as seems fitting during the month of October, with its air of hope for better things, a once unpleasant, cold and lonely man named Clemente finds that his life is about to change.

Per Theater Chart: Thor's Lonely on Top

Thor was the only film to top the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart with an average of $16,618 in just under 4,000 theaters. Fast Five did come reasonably close to that mark with an average of $8,860, while the best limited release was Cave of Forgotten Dreams with $8,059. More...

Limited Releases Try to Take on God of Thunder

May 6th, 2011

It is officially the beginning of summer, at least according to the movie industry. And while most eyes are on Thor, there's a bundle of limited releases trying to compete for limited box office dollars. I'm not overly bullish on most film's chances. There are a few films opening in way too many theaters, some that are opening with Tomatometer scores that would be terrible for wide releases, etc. There are also a few with good reviews or some advanced buzz, but going the limited release route is always a risk. Let's hope some can escape it. More...
