In 1981, a struggling, self-employed medical-supply salesman (Will Smith) must cope with unemployment, his wife leaving him, and caring for his young son, Christopher, (played by Smith’s real-life son Jaden) in this movie inspired by a true story. As Chris Gardner, Smith excels in bringing to life the soul of a man hanging on by a thread yet continuing to have faith in his talents and that he’ll be able to earn enough to get by.

Val Kilmer gives a vastly underrated performance as Jim Morrison in Oliver Stone’s 1991 The Doors, a somewhat thin examination of the life of one of rock’s most admired and misunderstood front men. Awash in a mix of alcohol, drugs, and sex, Kilmer nails the Morrison persona. Although the material gives a less than three-dimensional view of the man, his performance is incredible.

Angsty teenagers and other assorted characters end up in a desolate, New Mexico trailer park called Dreamland—some are living there, while some are just passing through. It’s an earnest film that tries hard but misses. John Corbett of Sex and the City heads the cast and shines as a long-suffering widower who finds at least a little bit of solace inside of a bottle. He’s also the father of Audrey (Agnes Bruckner), who receives college acceptance letters yet hides them so she can stay and care for her dad. Then there’s her friend (Kelli Garner), who’s stricken with multiple sclerosis and gets involved with a newcomer to the area: a rehabbing basketball player (Justin Long from Dodgeball), who also likes Audrey.

Talented teenage artist Jerome (Max Minghella, son of Oscar-winning director Anthony) enrolls in a small New York City art college, and his world opens up in this bitingly original, funny, and scathing film from director Terry Zwigoff (Ghost World, Bad Santa). Set against the backdrop of a campus murderer who’s tallying up victims at a quick rate, Jerome becomes increasingly confused and angry at his overcritical classmates and his own insecurities. Worse yet, Jerome finds himself in a love triangle with fellow artist Jonah (Matt Keeslar) and the stunning model Audrey (Sophia Myles). This desperation and self-doubt lead him to consider extreme measures to win the affection and admiration of all.

As she walks down the aisle at her own wedding, Rachel locks eyes for the first time with the female florist, and it’s love at first sight (literally, as she says) in the BBC production Imagine Me & You, an amiable, innocuous, and no-surprises film that leads you exactly where you think it will. Coyote Ugly star Piper Perabo is the newly married and now torn Brit who just can’t ignore the feelings she has no matter how hard she tries, and Lena Headey is Luce, the gay florist who also happens to feel the same.

Emily Rose is dead. That is a fact. The question asked is, whose fault is it? Was it lack of medical treatment or something unexplainable, something supernatural that caused her demise? Part courtroom drama, part horror film, this movie is truly scary and delves into the question of where faith fits into a world where someone must always be held accountable. Deeply religious, the entire Rose family believes, as does Father Moore (Tom Wilkinson), that it is most definitely a demonic possession and not a mental disorder that is at the root. Moore attempts an exorcism, and Emily's subsequent death is pinned on the accused and now-jailed priest. Laura Linney as his defender Erin Bruner is a skeptic, but her involvement in this case and the events that follow show her another side.

This is a special one. The newly minted Academy Award winner for Best Motion Picture is set in L.A., but it could be about all of America, warts and all. Paul Haggis’ script (he also directed) has such depth and insight into thoughts that we have—sometimes fleeting, sometimes ones that are ingrained about race, stereotypes, and prejudice—that it makes you question yourself. The performances are superb. The cast turns in Oscar-worthy performances all around.
