Description: Liddle Entertainment and Roadside Attractions team up to offer an exclusive Oscar-qualifying theatrical run (Los Angeles and New York) to this Spanish production, starring Javier Bardem as Uxbal, a “dour man but a devoted husband and father who, thanks to his ability to read the minds of the recently deceased, ekes out a living in Barcelona.” Reaction at festival screenings (Cannes, Telluride, Toronto) was not overwhelming, but Badem earned good notices. The genre element is small, so don’t expect to see a scary movie about someone who sees dead people.

Expect a slightly wider, though still limited, theatrical release on January 28.
