'Little Children' on demand (but, perhaps, not in demand enough)

A friend who visited Atlanta this past weekend tells me that Little Children was one of the options at her hotel for in-room pay-per-viewing. So I can't help thinking: No matter how many Oscar nominations the movie may receive on Tuesday, has New Line already written off its prospects as a theatrical release?

In event event: Jack Mathews is predicting nominations for Best Actress (Kate Winslet), Best Supporting Actor (Jackie Earle Haley) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Todd Field, Tom Perrotta). All of which, I'm sure, will look very impressive on the DVD packaging.

Little Children still hasn't been released to Atlanta theaters. As I said over on HE, I may just have to get a hotel room to actually see the damn thing.

Well, she tells me she and her husband stayed at a Red Roof Inn. Surely that can't cost too much. Maybe you and your fellow film buffs can split the room rental for a single night.

Little Children did open in Atlanta at the Tara Cinemas back in October '06 for about one month. I know because I saw it twice there.
