Thanksgiving Weekend is not a good time to release a limited release. There are too many other distractions for moviegoers to deal with. This year is no different. If we limited the films to only those with ten reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, there would only be two films on this week's list. One of them is The Danish Girl, which was earning some Awards Season buzz. Its reviews are good, but not Awards Season good.
