Nov. 3-10. Hurry to snag coveted free tickets to screenings at this renowned film festival, which has a track record of previewing films that later dominate the awards shows. (Last year’s closer was Black Swan.) I actually just went to a screening of Sherlock Holmes 2, so looks like you guys might be getting lucky while touring LA. The opening night gala film is the Clint Eastwood biopic J. Edgar, starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the role of FBI founding director J. Edgar Hoover.
