In four episodes, Elia Suleiman recounts family stories inspired by his father’s private diaries starting from when he was a resistance fighter in 1948, and his mother’s letters to family members who were forced to leave the country during the same period. Suleiman also combines his own memories in an attempt to provide a portrait of the daily life of the Palestinians who were labeled “Israeli-Arabs” after they chose to remain in their country and become a minority.

Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune opened on top of the per theater chart with $18,211 in one theater over the weekend and $26,846 since Wednesday. This pushed Blue Valentine into second place with an average of $17,608; however, Valentine also saw its theater count balloon from 4 to 40. Another Year added one more theater, but it wasn't enough to keeps its overall box office level, as its average slipped to $12,466. The Illusionist hung on with an average of $10,996, but I think it has taken too long and it might be too late to expand significantly.

If you are interested in winning Oscars, you are a week late. Since its too late to go for Oscars, and the competition in the limited release front is so strong, this time of year tends to be soft when it comes to quality limited releases. However, it's not all bleak, and there's one or two that are winning over critics or have a shot at cracking $1 million at the box office.
