TUESDAY PICK | “The Nine Muses” makes you think


You might not be able to fully gather the premise of The Nine Muses just by watching the trailer, but British/Ghanaian director John Akomfrah’s film created quite a stir among critics at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. The film is described as “part documentary, part personal essay” about the immigration from the UK to Alaska in 1960 and beyond; Variety called it “cerebral and sensual.” The Nine Muses makes its Minnesota debut at the Pillsbury House Theatre on Tuesday, March 20. In exchange for an Abe Lincoln, you’ll see what the buzz is all about.
