First up, Russell Crowe is the mythological boy-and-arrow-wielding hero in Robin Hood, Ridley Scott's tenacious adaptation of the familiar medieval story. We don't want to spoil our review, but, as our write-up states, "little things like robbing from the rich and giving to the poor fall by the wayside."
Amanda Seyfried and Vanessa Redgrave star in Letters to Juliet, a film that tells the story of a girl who travels to Verona to find unanswered love letters to Juliet in the fictional character's courtyard and embarks on a quest to connect past lovers. Another romance this week is Just Wright, directed by Sanaa Hamri. Queen Latifah is a physical therapist who is assigned to work with an all-star NBA player, yet things get difficult when she finds herself starting to fall in love with him.
The Trotsky, a Quebec-based film directed by Jacob Tierney, tells the tale of a teen who believes himself to be the reincarnation of Marxist theorist Leon Trotsky and tries intensely to lead the same life path, while Rodrigo García's Mother and Child focus on the lives of three very different woman.
Lastly, check out our review of biopic Mao's Last Dancer, based on ballet dancer Li Cunxin's 2003 autobiography of the same name.
