We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

The high-brow stuff warrants the most attention, with the release of Doubt and a special-edition re-release of No Country for Old Men. The former, in which John Patrick Shanley adapts his own acclaimed play about a priest suspected of misdeeds in the mid-1960s, features performances that aren't nearly as fantastic as they've been touted to be. It does, however, provide a great opportunity to become familiar with Shanley's fascinating exploration of the perils of "certainty." The latter adds a few more extras to the Coen brothers' magnificent 2007 Oscar-winner. It's worth being reminded to see it again.

For kids, there are some charms in the adaptation of The Tale of Despereaux, about a big-eared mouse with big dreams. Grown-ups ... stick to the grown-up stuff.
