At the Arthouse 

Our picks for the films you should be seeing this week

The Awful Truth

Classic screwball comedy from 1937 made by people who know a thing or two about the genre, including director Leo McCarey and star Cary Grant. The latter plays one-half of a divorcing couple that keeps messing up the other's chance of starting a new relationship. Think they'll mend their ways before the end of the movie? We're not telling. Besides, it's not about that. It's about the jokes, which average about one every 40 seconds.

Cinematheque. At 9:15 p.m. Friday, December 10, and 5:15 p.m. Saturday, December 11.

Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer

Profile of the hooker-lovin' former governor of New York. Opens Friday at the Cedar Lee Theatre.

Enter the Void

A young (and dead) drug dealer's ghost protects his sister. Opens Friday at the Cedar Lee Theatre.

The Island

A big hit at the Russian Oscars back in 2007, it's about a monk who can heal people. It was never released in the U.S., so here's your chance to see what everyone in Russia was talking about three years ago. Cinematheque. At 6:45 p.m. Thursday, December 9, and 8:55 p.m. Saturday, December 11.

Living in Emergency: Stories of Doctors Without Borders

Doc about four volunteer docs doing good in war-torn Liberia and Congo. Cleveland Museum of Art's Morley Lecture Hall. At 7 p.m. Friday, December 10, and 1:30 p.m. Sunday, December 12.

My Dog Tulip

Animated movie about a guy's love for his dog. No, not that kind of love. He just really likes his dog. Cinematheque. At 9 p.m. Thursday, December 9; 5:30 p.m. Friday, December 10; and 7:10 p.m. Saturday, December 11.

The Secret of Kells

Grown-up animated movie (and Oscar nominee) about a monk, a little boy, and a very special book. Cleveland Museum of Art's Morley Lecture Hall. At 5:30 and 7 p.m. Wednesday, December 8.

Traffic

The Cinematheque's Jacques Tati celebration continues with the French director's 1971 movie about car culture. It's really funny. It's also the last time Tati played Mr. Hulot. Cinematheque. At 7:15 p.m. Friday, December 10.
