The Perfect Man

Starring Hilary Duff, Heather Locklear, Chris Noth

Rated PG for some mildly suggestive content

Directed by Mark Rosman

This summer’s most anticipated big-screen reunion isn’t Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. It’s Mark Rosman and Hilary Duff. The team from last summer’s flop A Cinderella Story regroups for Duff’s umpteenth attempt to establish herself as a bankable lead actress. This time around, Duff plays a girl saddled with the impossible feat of finding a man interested in Heather Locklear, who plays her single mother. Some mild suspense leading up to an inevitable conclusion is expected to ensue.

Howl’s Moving Castle

Featuring the voices of Christian Bale, Billy Crystal, Lauren Bacall, Blythe Danner, Will Friedle and Jena Malone

Rated PG for frightening images and brief mild language

Directed by Hayao Miyazaki

Showing exclusively at the Cedar Lee in Cleveland Heights

From Hayao Miyazaki, the Academy Award-winning director of Spirited Away, comes this critically lauded animated feature that could finally put the acclaimed Japanese director on the map. With a distribution deal from Disney and an all-star vocal cast (including Lauren Bacall as the Wicked Witch of the Waste), the director’s quirky brand of hand-drawn animation could finally strike a chord with mainstream American audiences.
