Here’s what’s opening in selected cities nationwide, and as David Letterman always says, we just pray to God your city has been selected. There’s the Sundance drama Please Give, the down and gritty hooch-soaked legacy story The Good Heart, and then there’s The Human Centipede, which tests the depths of human depravity. Take a closer look at them all below.

Catherine Keener stars in this examination of liberal guilt as Kate, a woman who buys items from the estates of the recently deceased to resell them, and who is wandering through her life trying to find ways to believe she’s a good person. She constantly gives money to any homeless person she sees, but not helping matters is the fact that her family is waiting for their elderly neighbor to die so they can buy her apartment and expand theirs. Also troubling is her daughter demanding expensive clothing and her husband (Oliver Platt) straying with the neighbor’s granddaughter (Amanda Peet) due in part to the joylessness of her existence. Kate tries to form a bond with the other, more protective granddaughter (Rebecca Hall) in an effort to assuage her shame about herself, but things don’t go as she plans.
