And they're off... First Saturday in May (Truly Indie)
With nearly a dozen film openings and/or events to cover for this weekend, my apologies for getting to coverage of a couple films late. First Saturday in May (opened April 18 at Landmark's Hillcrest Cinema) serves up a documentary about horse racing, focusing in particular on a handful of trainers with hopes of getting their horse to the Kentucky Derby. The film arrives just ahead of that fateful first Saturday in may in the hopes of tapping into the excitement building up to the Derby. NOTE : Co-director Brad Hennegan will make an appearance at the Hillcrest Cinemas on Sunday April 20 at the 12:10, 2:40 and 5:10pm screenings.
