A teenager's arrival in a small community causes waves in this black comedy from writer/director Mike Goldbach. After the sudden death of her mother, street-smart 17-year-old Caroline Wexler (Kat Dennings) moves to a small town where her father has a new job. Bored with her new classmates and eager for excitement, Caroline decides to seduce one of her teachers, Mr Anderson (Josh Lucas), who, although wary at first, soon finds himself under the teenager's spell. Things start to get complicated, however, when one of her classmates, Thurston (Reece Thompson), also falls for her charms, triggering a love triangle, much to the annoyance of the jealous Mr Anderson.
Moving adaptation of a short story by Alice Munro, starring Julie Christie as Fiona, who has been married to Grant (Gordon Pinsent) for almost 50 years. The couple's commitment to each other appears unwavering, and their everyday life is full of tenderness and humor. This serenity is broken only by the occasional, carefully restrained reference to the past, giving a sense that this marriage may not always have been such a fairy tale. This tendency of Fiona's to make such references, along with her increasingly evident memory loss, creates a tension that is usually brushed off casually by both of them. But as the lapses become more obvious and dramatic, it is no longer possible for either of them to ignore the fact that Fiona is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
Director Brian De Palma revisits similar terrain that he covered in his 1989 film, 'Casualties of War', in this 'fictional documentary' loosely based on a real-life gang rape and multiple murder perpetrated by US soldiers in Iraq in 2006. Centred around a small army group stationed at a checkpoint in Iraq, the film alternates points of view, balancing the experiences of these inexperienced young men with those of the western media and local Iraqi people. Utilising an array of different filmic styles, from video diaries and surveillance footage, to produced documentaries and news coverage, De Palma forces the viewer to question how 'truth' is reported and asks difficult questions about the brutalising effects of war on all those involved.
Coming-of-age drama written and directed by Armenian-Canadian filmmaker Atom Egoyan. After becoming orphaned as a boy in mysterious circumstances, Simon (Devon Bostick) has been brought up by his Uncle Tom (Scott Speedman). Simon's memories of his mother Rachel (Rachel Blanchard) and father Sami (Noam Jenkins) are shrouded in doubt and conflicting accounts. When Simon's teacher Sabine (Arsinee Khanjian) reads Simon's class a news story about an attempted aircraft bombing, Simon identifies strongly with the story and rewrites it as a version of the accident that caused his parents' death. As his interpretation of the story gathers momentum and ends up in the public arena on the internet, Simon finally comes face to face with his own memories and experiences - and discovers that only he can decide what to believe about his fractured past.
