2. Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, the big screen adaptation of the late South African President's 1995 autobiography of the same name, is the latest from director Michael Chadwick. Chadwick and screenwriter William Nicholson had a very daunting task before them. Could they really condense some 77 years of Mandela's life into a movie with a theater-friendly running time and still do the man justice? Jared Lovrak is happy to report that they could, and they did it beautifully. Read his full review here, then check out the film at 1:45 and 7 p.m. in The Grand Cinema.

The documentary CLAW: The Collective of Lady Arm Wrestlers retells the birth pains of the collective, shares the shattered bones, and recognizes the joyous political empowerment that comes out of grabbing hands. The Olympia Chapter of The Collective Ladies of Arm Wrestling - "OLYCLAW" - is generate interest and garner support for its fledgling league by screening CLAW at 7 p.m. inside Le Voyeur.
