There are only a few days left to enjoy it, but here are the movies in the Tribeca Film Festival we’re most excited to see before it wraps up. For more info on times, tickets and venues, see the full schedule. -Cass Daubenspeck
1. Life Doesn’t Frighten Me
Esther Weary has only her clueless grandfather and his pet pug to rely on when it comes to growing up. So she’s pretty much on her own to discover the realities of becoming a woman. A comedy about a young woman’s exploration of ugliness and beauty. Playing 4/24 and 4/28.
2. Almost Christmas
Charming Paul Rudd and Paul Giarnatti are a pair of French Canadians who come to New York City and try to get rich selling Christmas Trees. Critics are calling this a “buddy comedy” which means it’s probably fun and funny; a perfect movie for a date! And Paul Rudd’s in it. Did we mention that already? Plays 4/24 and 4/28.
3. A Case of You
Justin Long (He’s Just Not That Into You) plays a young writer who woos a barista (Sienna Miller) with his slightly exaggerated online profile. Thing is, once they meet, he has to keep up the act or risk losing her. Vince Vaughn and Brendan Fraser also make an appearance. Plays 4/23, 4/25 and 4/28.
4. Atlantic Avenue
Seventeen-year-old male prostitute Jeremiah helps Celeste when she gets her scarf stuck in her wheelchair and blocks traffic. It’s love at first sight for her, but he’s too invested in his career. Things turn around, though, in this French romance. Plays 4/25 and 4/28.
5. Before Midnight
The third chapter of the love affair Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy started in 1995. This time, the passionate relationship continues on the streets of Greece. We wouldn’t miss it. Plays 4/24 at 6:45 pm
