God’s Pocket

Nothing really connecting these two movies except that they both feature a bunch of actors we really, really like. So let's roll...

Philip Seymour Hoffman, Richard Jenkins, Christina Hendricks and John Turturro combine Voltron forces for John Slattery's "God's Pocket." Here's the synopsis: 

The story of a man trying to conceal the truth about the construction “accident” that killed his stepson.

Next up, Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana put on their game faces for Maya Forbes' curiously named "Infinitely Polar Bear," which as far as we can tell is neither infinite nor features polar bears. Synopsis: 

A manic-depressive father tries to win back his wife by taking full responsibility of their two young daughters.
