Law Abiding Citizen - Jamie Foxx, Gerard Butler

Directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Kurt Wimmer, the crime thriller Law Abiding Citizen stars Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx as two men on the opposite sides of law. It's just unclear who's actually on the right side: the district attorney (Foxx) who agreed on a plea bargain that set murderers loose, or the man (Butler) who wants to take revenge against the D.A. for allowing his family's killers to roam free.

Also in the cast: Colm Meaney, Bruce McGill, Leslie Ibb, Michael Irby.

Law Abiding Citizen opened in the US this past Friday.

An Unflinching Look at the Controversial Latter-Day Saint Community

The Glass House, which was screened at Sundance 2009, is “an intimate portrait of the never-before-seen plight of underclass Iranian women,” while Banking of Heaven is “ an unflinching look at a controversial Latter-Day Saints community” that is described as “home to a culture that routinely practices child rape, welfare fraud and systematic mind control.”

Wednesday, October 28 - 7:30 PM at the Aero Theatre
THE GLASS HOUSE, 2009, 92 min. Dir. Hamid Rahmanian. Four Iranian girls strive to pull themselves out of the margins by attending a one-of-a-kind rehabilitation center in uptown Tehran. With a virtually invisible camera, the girls of THE GLASS HOUSE take us on a never-before-seen tour of the underclass of Iran, examining sexual abuse, drug addiction and abandonment. Discussion following with director Hamid Rahmanian and writer Melissa Hibbard.

Thursday, October 29 - 8:00 PM at the Egyptian Theatre
Los Angeles Premiere! BANKING ON HEAVEN, 2005, Over the Moon Productions, 90 min. An unflinching look at a cult of Fundamentalist Latter-Day Saints (FLDS). The polygamist communities of Colorado City, Arizona, and Hildale, Utah, are home to a culture that routinely practices child rape, welfare fraud and systematic mind control. Director Dot Reidelbach and writer-producer Laurie Allen, who escaped a similar sect, have constructed a documentary out of hidden-camera footage, interviews with polygamist escapees, “lost boys” (young men and children cast out of the community) and government officials. Discussion following with writer-producer Laurie Allen.

Familiar Strangers

Phase 4 Films will be releasing the comedy Familiar Strangers on DVD on November 10.

Written by John Bell and directed by Zackary Adler, Familiar Strangers, about changing relationships between parents and their growing children, features Nikki Reed (Twilight, Lords of Dog Town), Shawn Hatosy (Public Enemies), DJ Qualls (All About Steve) and Cameron Richardson (Alvin and the Chipmunks). The film won Best Ensemble Cast at Method Fest 2008.

Here's the synopsis from the press release:

Brian Worthington (Shawn Hatosy) reluctantly returns home for the Thanksgiving holiday after a long estrangement, carrying the baggage of unresolved conflict with his father Frank (Tom Bower).  Frank has replaced his maturing children with his pets, new children “who never have to grow up.”  Family friend Allison (Nikki Reed), long an admirer of Brian, is happy to find him back for a visit; she just might appreciate his family more than he does, and may help to make this return home bearable.

The DVD (English Closed Captions, Spanish Subtitles) will be available for a $29.99 SRP in the U.S. at all major retailers.
