Five Must-See Movies in Phoenix This April
Joséphine de La Baume in Kiss of the Damned
Pass the popcorn. Here are five movies you've gotta see this month.
Kiss of the Damned @ Harkins Scottsdale 101 There are a few reasons Kiss of the Damned is on our must-see list. It's directed by Xan Cassavetes, daughter of John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands. Milo Ventimiglia (a.k.a. Rory Gilmore's soulmate) is in it, as is model/royal pain in Blair Waldorf's ass Roxane Mesquida. In case none of that matters to you, here are three words: sexy, vampire, thriller. Sold? Thought so.
