While reviews out of TIFF weren't great -- we called it "a black blot of shame for everyone who had a part in its making" -- "Hick" still remains a curiosity because it offers up a grittier side we've rarely seen from the cast led by Blake Lively, Chloe Moretz and Eddie Redmayne.

While Hal Holbrook hasn't lacked for work in his career on both the big and small screen reaching back to the '60s, his late-stage jobs have earned him the most notice. He nabbed an Academy Award nomination in 2007 for "Into The Wild" and since then, did an arc on "Sons Of Anarchy," led the critically acclaimed but somewhat overlooked "That Evening Sun" and recently wrapped "Lincoln" with Steven Spielberg. Now he's going to spend his spring with another acclaimed director, Gus Van Sant, and his casting has also led to some plot details finally emerging.

In the beautiful, meditative new documentary "The Island President," we're introduced to Mohamed Nasheed, the democratically elected president of a chain of 2,000 islands in the Indian Ocean known as The Maldives. After three decades of tyrannical rule, the islands gained democratic independence, nominated Nasheed, and found their calling in the world – to expose the catastrophe of global warming by example. The Maldives, Nasheed explains, are slowly disappearing into the ocean. It's a truth loaded with symbolic and literal weight – in the face of global warming, the entire culture of the Maldives could be lost forever, here one day, gone the next.

You asked for it, America. As mind-numbingly shitty as it was, "Grown Ups" made over $162 million at home, contributing to over $270 million worldwide. It didn't take a genius at Sony to figure out that if Adam Sandler is going to make his first sequel, it might as well be for one of his biggest box office hits. But at least they are adding some fresh blood.

Last week, we took a look at the relative dearth of leading men in Hollywood: why Tom Cruise, Will Smith et al remain at the top of the tree, and why so few serious competitors have emerged since. But one of the most exciting things about our job is getting to watch the new names that emerge, breakouts who have the potential to join the A-listers, or at the very least, deliver a host of hugely exciting performances for decades to come.
