Miami Indie Cinema Roundup: Arthouse Films Oct. 22 To 28 (VIDEOS)

Melanie Lynskey stars as the older woman in love with a family friend's 19-year-old son in the rom-com "Hello I Must Be Going," playing this week at Cosford Cinema. The recently divorced woman is crashing with her parents indefinitely and hasn't got much of a life. However, when she's asked to show young Jeremy around the town, the two give in to each other and begin a secret love affair.

In Fort Lauderdale, Cinema Paradiso is home to the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) with dozens of movies of all genres, languages and content playing for weeks.

Environmentalists get a film festival of their own at the Miami Beach Cinematheque with the Environmental Film Festival of Miami and the Beaches, running Oct. 25 to 28. Check out "Island President," where the (now former) president of the Maldives struggles to get the world to listen to his country's problem of rising sea levels. He even goes as far as to host the first underwater conference, with attendees decked out in SCUBA gear.
