Never judge a movie by its poster when it comes to The Weinstein Company. Last year when Harvey and co. dropped the first poster for "The King's Speech" my jaw hit the floor...and not in a good way (see above to get an idea). But hey, that film went on to win Best Picture at the Oscars, so who am I to judge the company's marketing methods? The final poster for his latest drama, "Sarah's Key" is similarly weak and uninspired. Thankfully, the same can't be said of the film itself.

Upon taking my seat to "The Book of Mormon" last Friday on Broadway I knew something was up. First off, I wasn't assigned a seat, so I freely chose where to sit (front row of the mezzanine in case you're curious). Secondly (and most perplexingly), it was hard to pinpoint an audience member over the age of 60 in the sold out crowd.
