Audrey Kupferberg: A Coffee In Berlin

Every once in a while, a film comes along that dares to withhold facts, to keep its intentions as a guessing game, even as the final credits are being displayed.  Such a film is Jan Ole Gerster’s award-winning German feature A COFFEE IN BERLIN, also known as OH BOY!  Since this is Gerster’s first feature film, it is no wonder that it has taken some bit of time for it to catch on in the United States.  With an original German theatrical release in late 2012, A COFFEE IN BERLIN didn’t arrive in U.S. cinemas until June 2014. At its widest release here, it only played in twelve theaters and brought in only $150,000.  Even in Europe, the film played mainly at festivals, where it has won a good number of prestige awards, and theatrically it only grossed $2,600,000.

A challenger has emerged against the sitting Albany County executive.  Albany School Board Member Dan Egan appears ready to roll against Dan McCoy in a Democratic primary.

Dan McCoy was elected in 2011 as Albany county's fourth executive: the former city firefighter once chaired the legislature, which holds much of the power to run the county. With the September primary nine months away, McCoy embarked on a very early media blitz of television ads over the weekend, which observers see as an indication he's not taking his electability for granted.
