Michael Spurlock is a former salesman turned pastor whose first assignment is to close a smalltown church that has a meagre congregation of just 12 people, and sell the land that it sits on. While most folk have come to accept the state of the All Saints Episcopal Church, Michael knows that it can't continue without more public interest. And it's not as if they're not trying to encourage more worshippers to join them - in fact, a large group of refugees from Burma have arrived and they have nothing to their name except hope and their faith. Michael decides that he will do everything in his power to keep the church open for the sake of these people, and before long he has a religious revelation. Having heard God finally answer his prayers, he embarks on the difficult project of turning the land into a farm. It would bring in enough profit to save the church from closure and even provide employment for the refugees. On the other hand, Michael is risking everything he has in the world for something that may never be successful, but he knows he can turn it all around if he believes in God - and himself - enough.

Quentin's life is perfectly ordinary for a growing high school boy, at least apart from his mysterious and gorgeous neighbour Margo, with whom he has been friends since kindergarten. She's an eccentric character who, out of blue, decides to enlist him on an all night revenge project of hers, touring the neighbourhood which she bitterly calls a 'paper town' and finding a way to get back at her cheating ex-boyfriend. Just as suddenly, Margo disappears the very next day leaving behind a string of clues as to her whereabouts. Worried and desperate to find her, Quentin gets his friends to join him on his search for Margo - but he's about to discover that there's more to friendship than trying to be a hero, and he's about to learn a lesson or two in love too.

Slick and haunting, this film delves into the things that hold a marriage together in a way only Stephen King would even begin to attempt. It's an involving, clever idea, never quite as deep as it seems to be, but elevated by sharply honest performances by the terrific Joan Allen and Anthony LaPaglia, with an additional bit of spice from Stephen Lang, playing far against type. Although in the end, it's hard to escape the fact that this is actually just a simplistic, nasty little thriller.
It centres on Darcy and Don (Allen and LaPaglia), a blissfully happy middle-aged couple with grown children (Kristen Connolly and Theo Stockman) who are on the verge of starting families of their own. Then Darcy makes a discovery in the garage that links Don to a series of serial murders terrorising New England. When Don realises that she knows, he says he'll stop the killing if she lets their life go back to normal. But how can it, when she's having terrified fever dreams every night? She can just about hold it together for their kids, but she keeps seeing opportunities to take matters into her own hands. Meanwhile, a shady figure (Lang) seems to be following them.
Yes, King's screenplay is less interested in carrying on with a probing, blackly witty exploration of the stresses of long-term relationships than in making viewers squirm in their seats. And the film certainly does this thanks to another remarkably offhanded performance from Allen. While she sometimes seems a bit panicky and arch, there's real edge to her screen presence. And LaPaglia is superb as the likeable killer who should probably be stopped but is nice to have around the house. Intriguingly, the film doesn't end when we think it will, as the characters have a bit further to go on this grisly little journey.

In 1983 New Mexico, Owen (Smit-McPhee) lives with his absent mother (Buono) in a generic apartment complex. It's the dead of winter, and a new neighbour attracts Owen's interest: Abby (Moretz) is also 12 years old, "more or less".
Although she says they can't be friends, they clearly already are. And Owen needs a friend, since he's being horribly bullied at school by Kenny (Minnette) and his pals. But Abby has problems too: she needs human blood to survive and her guardian (Jenkins) is struggling to supply it.

He's got girl trouble with "used goods" Linda (the impossibly gorgeous Cara Buono). And he's throwing a bachelor party, which is bound to get him into trouble.

An obviously self-indulgent indie project from Nisha Ganatra, who directs, produces, writes, and stars, our heroine Reena finds herself acting as a surrogate mother for her infertile older sister, who is married to a bit of a schlub of a white guy. But what will Reena's girlfriend Lisa (Hennessy) think? You can probably fill in the rest of the movie on your own.

Recovering co-dependent Ruby Weaver has such bad luck with men that she and her girlfriends keep a shoebox of photos called "The Ex Files."
In the beginning of "Happy Accidents," writer-director Brad Anderson ("Next Stop Wonderland," "Session 9") shows us a comical montage of progressively eccentric examples: The Bad Actor, the Artist, the Fetishist, the Frenchman, the Junkie and the Abductee, who thought he'd been kidnapped by aliens.
Ruby (Marisa Tomei in an amusingly harried performance) hopes she's seen the worst of this trend and is, with the help of her intrusive therapist (the wonderfully wry Holland Taylor), beginning to curb her pathological urge to try to fix men that are beyond repair.
