Our Picks for Week Two of the Amazing Mill Valley Film Festival

Holy Motors

Somewhat troublingly for those of us without cars, bikes or private helicopters, one of the San Francisco's biggest film events, the Mill Valley Film Festival, isn't actually in San Francisco. Known for its propensity to attract top-tier talent and lead the Oscar season more than its laughably ugly program covers, the MVFF takes a bit of patience to reach by bus, but is resoundingly worth the trip, and makes a great weekend mini-getaway to boot.

Emily Blunt Closes Mill Valley Film Festival

Those who came out to San Rafael for the closing night of the Mill Valley Film Festival on Sunday got a double shot of celebrity: Emily Blunt, the evening's leading lady, and her fiance, John Krasinski of The Office fame. Moments before the screening of Blunt's new film, The Young Victoria, due out just before Christmas, the doting duo pulled up to the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center for the show.

Blunt, a vision in pink Moschino, stopped briefly to talk to us about her role as a teenage Queen Victoria.
