The psychological thriller "The Gift" subverts the "Fatal Attraction" genre by sprinkling it with a little "Usual Suspects" flavoring.

"Tomorrowland" is an interesting collage of moments and ideas in search of a strong narrative and a coherent ending.

A well-acted, absorbing story that ranks high both in terms of unpredictability and all-around appeal.
