Heartbreak and inspiration swarm across screens at IndieFest 2010

West of Pluto

Also worth checking out: The Art of the Steal, Philadelphia documentarian Don Argott's absorbing look at the Barnes Collection, a privately-amassed array of post-Impressionist paintings (including 181 Renoirs) worth billions — and the many people and corporate interests that schemed to control it. This film opens theatrically in March, justifiably. Fans of The Class (2008) shouldn't miss West of Pluto, a Quebec-set, semi-improvised peek into the secret lives of teenagers. And surely there are more winners that my jaded ass hasn't managed to see yet. Isn't that always the fun of IndieFest — digging up those sparklers in the rough?
