Exceptional performances by two femme leads and sensitive but unsentimental storytelling throughout.
Earnest and understated, "Weekend" has the intimate look and feel of a two-character stage play that has been opened up.
Think of it as the cinematic equivalent of a buzz-kill.
A well-cast but generally unremarkable drama about an Iraq War vet's struggle to recover from physical and psychological wounds at a military rehab hospital.
Low-key charmer about the joys and challenges of being -- temporarily, at least -- a Yuletide icon.
"The Divide" resembles nothing so much as an extended "Twilight Zone" episode.
Amiably sketchy Willie Nelson doc is more of an affectionate tribute than an in-depth portrait.
A deliberately paced, dialogue-heavy ghost story in the style of Eisenhower-era B-pics.
An engagingly offbeat comedy that respects its characters too much to push too hard for easy laugh.
The cinematic equivalent of a light but tasty snack.
Enjoyably upbeat, intelligently inspiring study of a volunteer coach and his young football players.
