The Film Society of Lincoln Center Hosts "Problem Child" Movie Marathon over Thanksgiving Weekend
Many people will join their extended families over Thanksgiving weekend and many will find bratty nieces, nephews, and cousins getting underfoot. The Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York has a solution -- an eleven-film series at the Walter Reade Theater entitled "Problem Child: A Cinematic Display of Bad Behavior" that conclusively shows that persistent annoyance is the least of anybody's worries. The series starts on Friday, November 28th, "Black Friday," and concludes on Sunday, November 30th. Over the three day period, a wide range of movies will be shown, from dramas (The Children's Hour and Compulsion) to horror flicks (The Bad Seed and The Omen).
