This got delayed due to the strikes.

It opened limited a few weeks ago and is now expanding to more theatres.

Saw this last weekend, and enjoyed it a lot. Torres is very good. Swinton is excellent!

I thought it was good, a independent, artsy, movie with a lighthearted feel to it, I think the narration was a good idea to follow the background on the characters. much like the movie Amelie.
Spoiler:
One thing I was trying to figure out though How did Hasbro get his idea? was it from the guy who was subletting his room?, because he never was there the roommate said

Missed a chance to see this at the local theater down the street. It was only screening for a few days.

Will have to wait for the Digital release.
