With Washington’s elections concluded, we cinephiles can now return our focus to the much more critical campaign ahead of us: the race toward the Oscars. Steven Spielberg releases his bait this weekend in limited release, a number of festival darlings (and stinkers, incidentally; but, hey, everything needs a little balance) hit the big screen, and one of Hollywood’s most time-tested blockbuster franchises gets its 23rd installment. Get your voting cards ready, folks!

In movies, there is honesty, and there is truth. Forgive filmmakers for getting them confused, particularly in the post-indie world, where low-budget strategies bled into the mainstream allowing films to have an emotional immediacy and verisimilitude that soon gave way to simple re-creation of real life. This has resulted in a certain honesty much like that portrayed in “28 Hotel Rooms,” but the art form has evolved too much for that honesty to still be confused for truth.

Unfolding as a collage of moments—some sexy, some innocent, some profound, some silly— "28 Hotel Rooms" is an intimate portrait of an affair in which two people wrestle with the intoxication of sex and the confusion of loving more than one person. Starring Chris Messina (most recently seen in "Argo" and "Ruby Sparks") and Marin Ireland (she was in the first season of "Homeland"), this indie drama is directed by Matt Ross, who some know from "Big Love" and we love most from his supporting role in Whit Stillman's "The Last Days of Disco" (he planned the lovably insufferable "Departmental Dan").
