A superior alternative to the big-name, bloated action films hogging the largest screens in most multiplexes.

With too much material to fit into a 141-minute movie, there are times when the approach feels superficial.

Director: Terry George
Cast: Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon, Christian Bale, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Angela Sarafya

Although at times overwrought and overtly manipulative, the film as a whole is like a kick to the gut.

A stirring drama that incorporates lighter moments with scenes of deeply felt tragedy.

Equal parts mesmerizing and perplexing, intriguing and frustrating.

Genre: Drama
Director: Amma Asante
Cast: David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Terry Pheto, Vusi Kunene, Jack Davenport, Tom Felton

A historically based movie that teaches lessons for today as well as educating us about the birth of a nation.

This offbeat revenge-thriller offers suspense and mystery that are a cut above anything currently being churned out by the studios.

Despite its uneven tone, the film is compelling and, perhaps more importantly, relevant.
