The trailers for Kings and Queen, a new Franch drama.
  • Nora (Emmanuelle Devos) is a 35-year-old art gallery director and single mother struggling to rise above tragic circumstances—a late husband, a failed second marriage and a lover’s suicide—through her successful career and marriage to a wealthy businessman. Ismaël (Mathieu Amalric), her ex-husband, is a disheveled, neurotic musician who descends into a comic nightmare when he is mistakenly committed to a mental hospital. He faces off against the steely clinic psychiatrist (Catherine Deneuve, in a scene-stealing cameo), but his eccentric antics—including an in-house pharmacy raid with his drug-addicted lawyer–earn a ten-day stay that may leave him worse off than when he entered. On discovering that her father is terminally ill and fearing for the future of her young son, Nora tracks down Ismaël at the institution to enlist his help. A series of intimate revelations and reversals further connects these disparate lives, offering several enigmas, as well as a rich examination of love, memory, mental health, and family responsibility.

The trailer for The Constant Gardener, a new thriller with Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz.
  • Based on the best-selling John le Carré novel and from the Academy Award-nominated director of "City of God." In a remote area of Northern Kenya, activist Tessa Quayle (Rachel Weisz) is found brutally murdered. Tessa's companion, a doctor, appears to have fled the scene, and the evidence points to a crime of passion. Members of the British High Commission in Nairobi assume that Tessa's widower, their mild-mannered and unambitious colleague Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes), will leave the matter to them. They could not be more wrong. Haunted by remorse and jarred by rumors of his late wife's infidelities, Quayle surprises everyone by embarking on a personal odyssey that will take him across three continents. Using his privileged access to diplomatic secrets, he will risk his own life, stopping at nothing to uncover and expose the truth - a conspiracy more far-reaching and deadly than Quayle could ever have imagined.

There's a reason. The dems would like a Clinton in the White House in 2008 and the name isn't Hillary.

This week's movies: The Perfect Man - not enough reviews for a score. The fact that it has not been pre-screened for critics is probably not a good omen.

Tom Cruise has hired a woman Scientology "minder" for girlfriend Katie Holmes.
  • At Tom insistence, Jessica Rodriguez goes everywhere with Katie, who is converting to the religious cult. "Tom pays Jessica to keep Katie on the path."
  • It seems to me that if a gorgeous 26 year old movie star has managed to stay a virgin, she probably can take care of herself. Just sayin'.
