Filmed in Georgia and written/directed by Todd Graff, the film tells the story of a "small town choir out to win a national competition despite overwhelming odds.

Written and directed by Avie Luthra, the South African drama Lucky about an orphan 10-year old boy who finds refuge with an old prejudiced Indian woman after his mother dies from AIDS, was profiled on the site back in September when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. It seems to have been well-received by critics; BBC called it, "a simple but profoundly moving portrait of humanity"..."a wonderful, little gem;" while a review by Variety calls it, "an emotionally resonant portrait of contemporary South Africa...delicate and real...extraordinarily touching."

I didn't care for the first trailer (the UK trailer), released a couple of weeks ago; having already seen the film, I just didn't feel that it did the best job of really capturing what I saw last month. This new trailer for the upcoming USA release is pretty much the same thing; the main difference is that the MPAA NC-17 and Fox Searchlight placards have been added to the front of it. Other than that, it's the same as the first trailer.
