(Aug. 30-Nov. 4) My House is not my House
A couple of animators study how humans interact with nature and each other in My House is not my House, showing at Artisphere in Arlington through early November.

Frank Langella plays the titular Frank, a retired cat burglar who thinks about getting back in the game with the help of his obedient friend.
