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. DONATE

Race Out and Rent



If you're looking for light comedic fare, it's not a bad week in the DVD release world. You've got men behaving like adolescents in I Love You, Man, and then you've got men turning into adolescents in 17 Again. ---

But if you're keen on digging a little deeper, don't miss Laurent Cantet's French-language drama The Class. It's a movie about a teacher in another country, but it's also a story that translates perfectly to the American experience -- one not necessarily about the teacher as perfect source of inspiration, but about a teacher in a rapidly-changing world who's barely keeping his head above water. While the director may not be making an actual documentary, his approach makes it feel as vital, real and of-the-moment as if these students were going to be sitting behind real desks tomorrow.
