Is Anybody There?
A young boy who lives in a nursing home owned by his parents is obsessed with death, and he befriends a new arrival, an ex-magician (Michael Caine) who is in the hospice against his will. The bond they form is an unlikely one, but it helps them both come to terms with mortality.


My Sister’s Keeper
Cameron Diaz stars as Sara Fitzgerald, a headstrong mother who is so desperate to save her leukemia-stricken daughter Kate (Sofia Vassilieva) that she genetically-engineers a second daughter Anna (Abigail Breslin) to be a perfect match for her to help with their inevitable donorship needs. But when the youngest girl contacts a lawyer (Alec Baldwin) to sue for medical rights to her own body, it creates a rift not only between Sara and her husband Brian (Jason Patric), but the legal battle threatens to break up the family.

The Limits of Control
Visionary director Jim Jarmusch returns with a crime story about a mysterious loner in contemporary Spain with unknown illegal objectives trying to achieve his goals while staying ahead of the authorities. Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and Gael Garcia Bernal co-star.
