Will you be coming to the film festival during AARP's Life@50+ National Event in New Orleans?
Billy Crystal will be there to preview his hilarious new film with Bette Midler, Parental Guidance. And legendary Oscar-winning singer and songwriter Paul Williams is coming to host a screening of his wonderful new film, Paul Williams Still Alive.
I'll be hosting the screenings, and I'm looking forward to discussing these great films with you before and after each screening:
Friday, Sept. 21
Noon: The Descendants We open this year with a screening of the film that won our Best Movies for Grownups Award for 2011, George Clooney's insightful, sad and hilarious story of a man at a middle-age crossroad.
2:30 p.m. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Tom WIlkinson and Maggie Smith star in this new instant classic, about a group of British retirees who decide to live in what they're told is a plush adult community in India. Fox Searchlight, the film's releasing company, is hosting a traditional British tea before the screening!

Saturday, Sept. 22
9 a.m. Arbitrage Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon star in this suspense thriller about a New York hedge-fund maganate who faces crises both at the office and at home.
Noon: The Oranges TV's "House," Hugh Laurie and Catherine Keener star in this family drama set in the wilds of surburban New Jersey. It's another pre-release preview.
3 p.m. Paul Williams Still Alive Hilarious, poignant, and packed with great music and celebrity cameos, this documentary tells the remarkable story of how Paul Williams went from being the hottest man in show biz--he wrote songs like "Evergreen," "We've Only Just Begun," and "Rainbow Connection" and appeared on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show dozens of times—to the answer to a "whaterver happened to" trivia question.
Williams and the director, Stephen Kessler, will be on hand to discuss the film after the screening.
