If you haven’t heard of Stieg Larsson’s best-selling trilogy, I’m afraid to say you’re slightly behind on your novel know-how. Thankfully, the Avon is offering you a quick fix – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is playing this weekend. Based on the first installment in Larsson’s series, the movie follows the story of Henrik Vanger’s search for his niece who disappeared 40 years ago. Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander are called into investigate. A couple of grizzly murders and some dark family secrets later and…you’re going to have to go to the movies to find out the rest. Or read the book. And remember, the book’s almost always better.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is playing at 6 and 9 P.M. on Fri. and Sat., with a 2 P.M. matinee on Sat. and Sun.
