    Rust and Bone

    ★★★★½

    The paths of two very different people cross at Antibes. Ali, a single dad and amateur boxer from Belgium, and Stephanie, an orca trainer at the local theme park who loses her legs in a freak accident. While their relationship starts as a friendship, it doesn't take long to become physical.

    Even in this age of superheroes, aliens, and CGI battles, there is still nothing to compare to the spectacle of a handful of humans laying bare their emotions onscreen.…

    While I admit that melodrama isn't exactly my favorite movie genre, "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers" is so well-made and gripping that…

    Draft Day

    ★★★½

    On draft day, Browns GM Sonny Weaver tries to make the best choice for his team and satisfy both the publicity-loving owner, and the no-nonsense coach. At the same time he is struggling to fix his relationships with both his estranged mother, and his pregnant girlfriend.

    "Draft Day" isn't your typical sports flick. There is absolutely no action and 99% of it takes place in enclosed spaces, featuring people that argue with each other. The material is fascinating, even to…
