I saw "Ixcanul," the excellently-plotted and visually-pleasing new film from Guatemala tonight at the Opera Plaza Cinema. I highly recommend it to those seeking a feminist tale that does not exoticize the peasant farmers at the heart of the story.

The film played in the theater's screening room A and it now has a few rows of plush new seats. There are several of the old thin-cushioned seats toward the back, but from my favorite seat in the second row, I can report the newer one are preferable.

Here's hoping the larger auditorium soon get refurbished seats. Keep us cineastes happy and coming back to the Opera Plaza Cinema, for the films and the good crew that works there.
