The story of a unique friendship that develops when a little girl and her dying mother retain the services of a talented cook — Henry Joseph Church. What begins as a six-month arrangement, instead spans fifteen years, and creates a family bond that lasts forever.
Mr. Church is a heartwarming film that challenges the notions of family and unconditional love. Set in a time when social boundaries were far more rigid, Henry Joseph Church takes on the role of surrogate father to a young girl as she struggles through the loss of her only present parent. He willingly accepts the responsibility of being the sole bread winner, chef, and teacher of the arts, supporting Charlie and her terminally ill mother; all the while creating a genuine loving environment as a member of this unlikely family.

It’s not a great week on the home market, as the biggest release of the week is the low-budget horror film, Lights Out. It is worth picking up on Blu-ray, but it is not worth the Pick of the Week title. The best film on this week’s list is Finding Dory, but it is only coming out on Video on Demand and it is worth waiting for the Blu-ray. That said, there’s no top-notch competition, so it is the Pick of the Week.

No films made it into the $10,000 club this past weekend, but 3 Weeks in Yerevan came really close with an average of $9,748 in three theaters. Another film, The Beatles: Eight Days a Week, did well with an average of $7,322 in 85 theaters. Sort of. In addition to playing in 85 theaters, there were another 80 theaters that had one-time showings over the weekend, which is why its total haul for the weekend is $771,153. I really hope having a mixed of regular showings and one-time screenings doesn’t catch on, because it makes our job of tracking box office numbers more confusing.

As expected, this weekend’s three new wide releases couldn’t budge Sully from the top of the chart with the Tom Hanks/Clint Eastwood drama down a very respectable 37% in its second weekend to $22 million, for a total of $70.5 million to date. Two films, Blair Witch and Bridget Jones’s Baby both had aspirations to challenge Sully for the title, but had to settle for second and third place.

There are almost 30 films opening in limited release this week, so obviously I won’t have time talk about all of them. I won’t have time to talk about half of them. The two films that stand out in this crowd are The Beatles: Eight Days a Week, The Working Years and Miss Stevens. Both are earning great reviews, but the former is a documentary and the latter debuts on VOD on Tuesday, so neither has a great shot at box office success.
