Harkening back to Italian neo-realism, the romance of Naples is alive in "And While We Were Here," the latest film from writer-director Kat Coiro. Considerably more watchable than her pratfall-driven debut "L!fe Happens," the picture is significantly more sober-minded, concerning the marriage of pretty blonde Jane (Kate Bosworth) and taciturn, mature Leonard (Iddo Goldberg). They arrive in the city and, almost as if by protocol, consume each other in bed. As she retreats to the lavatory, she gazes in the mirror and wraps her arm around her stomach mournfully. It's not hard to see that, while young, Jane has lost something.

10 Films To See In September
We’ve entered September, the point where the films aren’t bombastic enough for summer (but not outright crap reserved for August), and don’t have the longevity or clout to be remembered come Oscar time. Ten movies made the cut, along with a swath of honorable mentions, so September might be a good time to take a break from school or work and go hit the multiplex!

Happy Friday, streamers! Or, at least, it's a happy Friday for the Internet. As for those multiplexes... well, it's too soon to tell. But since we like to tie our streaming suggestions to the latest releases, here's a quick rundown. We're not sure what to make of "Kick-Ass 2" or "Jobs," and we're definitely not too excited about the star-studded (sigh) Liam Hemsworth vehicle "Paranoia." On the other hand, we are thrilled to suggest an alternate film—little known and highly underrated—starring Gary Oldman. Also a number of older picks, including a music documentary, a cheapo '80s fantasy flick, a major hit from last year, and a Criterion Collection gem from Indian auteur Satyajit Ray. The highly anticipated "Ain't Them Bodies Saints," while opening in theaters, isn't available on VOD yet (tune in next week!), but another indie slated for September is, and we've got the details here. So here we go!
