Hollywood delivers this weekend with a-typical rolls for a-list actors: Robert De Niro, a kind, but cranky grandpa in War with Grandpa (PG), Bill Murray, a lovingly concerned father in On the Rocks (R), and Sacha Baron Cohen, as a curly haired anti-war activist in Trial of the Chicago 7 (R).
This weekend is a unique opportunity to see some of Hollywood’s legends in their not-so-typical roles. Robert Dinero forever engrained in our minds as the ‘You talking to me?’ gangster has become a grandpa in the new film “War with Grandpa”. Bill Murray with his massive cult following for his delivery of ambivalent characters in witty comedies, takes us on a funny and loving journey to investigate his daughter’s marriage in “On the Rocks”. Also hitting limited screens across the country is “Trial of the Chicago 7”. Directed by Aaron Sorkin, the outrageous comedian, Sacha Baron Cohen transforms into a serious roll of an infamous anti-Vietnam protestor, big hair and all.
