We haven't hit Memorial Day Weekend yet, but it's official: Summer Blockbuster Season is underway. Between comic books, Michael Bay's latest flick, a Tom Cruise vehicle, and summer dalliances in the Hamptons, the second installment of the rebooted "Star Trek" franchise almost seems superfluous. Almost. Still, there's plenty of other delightful fare at the cinemas: another "Taken" imitation, a New-York-set coming-of-late-20s-ager, a B-horror movie set in Maine, a Korean thriller that may or may not feature Oedipal urges, and plenty of engaging documentaries. So enjoy the early onset of summer, faithful readers! And tell us what you want to see to celebrate it in the comments below!

And now another movie is coming soon with another unique look at a case where not everything is as it seems.

Making her feature directorial debut "Augustine," Alice Wintour wisely enlisted the talents of Vincent Lindon and Chiara Mastroianni, two excellent veterean French actors, to take on supporting roles in the film. But in the lead, she went with a rising newcomer, singer/actress Soko and added to that the challenge of making a period based film. The results? Two César award nominations for her efforts for Best First Film and Best Costume Design. And now, the picture is headed stateside.
