The gifted Chiwitel Ejiofor is a perfect choice to play the confident Northerner whose freedom and dignity are cruelly stripped away when he is sold into slavery in the 1840s.

Every parents’ nightmare is vividly depicted in "Prisoners," the first Hollywood feature from talented Canadian director Denis Villeneuve, who brought us the chilling Oscar nominee "Incendies."

If you have any fondness for life’s oddballs, I think you’ll share my affection for the latest film from the writing/directing team of Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman, who brought us American Splendor. The Extra Man, based on a novel by Jonathan Ames, focuses on two men who exist out of their time: Henry Harrison, a pompous, world-class eccentric who gets by as an escort, or “extra man,” for aging Manhattan society women, and Louis Ives, an unworldly academic with a propensity for cross-dressing.
