The trailer for The Bridesmaid, Claude Chabrol's new film
  • Claude Chabrol? Talk about the last of the Mohicans! His first IMDb credit is in 1956.
  • "It's love at first sight when bridesmaid Senta falls into the life of handsome young Philippe at the wedding of his younger sister. Though their passion for each other is as obvious as it is unquestionable, Philippe soon discovers that Senta's life is shrouded in mystery and her stories surrounding her past anything but believable. When one day she asks Philippe for an extreme proof of his love, Philippe must come to terms with who his lover might really be. But is this just another of Senta's fantastic tales? And how far is Philippe willing to go, even as his love for her seems to know no limits?"

Agnes and His Brothers
  • "Agnes and his brothers have little in common, except an eccentric old father, relationship problems that are totally screwing up their lives, and the distinct possibility those two things are connected. Hans-J�rg conceals his sexual frustration behind his meek librarian appearance. Werner is much more successful at political combat than family diplomacy. Agnes is haunted by the mother she never knew and perhaps too nostalgic about her past as a man. Despite her efforts, transgendered Agnes just can't quite fit into the mold of the little homemaker expected by her bossy boyfriend. Once she's out on the streets alone, Agnes wipes away her tears and proudly takes on her bleak future with a smile. A profoundly human family drama, it's a story full of passion, poetry and humor about three brothers searching for love and acceptance, and at the same time, a fascinating snapshot "

The New York Times says the dog ate their homework
  • "An article in The Metro Section on March 8 profiled Donna Fenton, identifying her as a 37-year-old victim of Hurricane Katrina who had fled Biloxi, Miss., and who was frustrated in efforts to get federal aid as she and her children remained as emergency residents of a hotel in Queens. (Go to Article)
    Yesterday, the New York police arrested Ms. Fenton, charging her with several counts of welfare fraud and grand larceny. Prosecutors in Brooklyn say she was not a Katrina victim, never lived in Biloxi and had improperly received thousands of dollars in government aid. Ms. Fenton has pleaded not guilty. For its profile, The Times did not conduct adequate interviews or public record checks to verify Ms. Fenton's account, including her claim that she had lived in Biloxi. Such checks would have uncovered a fraud conviction and raised serious questions about the truthfulness of her account. An article about her arrest and the findings from additional reporting about her claims appears here."

The trailer from Somersault
  • "After making a misjudged advance towards her mother's boyfriend, 16-year-old Heidi (Abbie Cornish) flees her home for the small Australian ski town of Jindabyne. Entranced by the startling beauty of the wintry landscapes and falling snow, she begins to create a new life for herself. With little money or practical experience, she accepts a job at a petrol station and finds lodging with Irene (Lynette Curran). When she falls for Joe (Sam Worthington), the son of a wealthy local farmer, her self-destructive tendencies re-surface, and her fragile new world threatens to come tumbling down. An erotic, lyrical depiction of a young girl's sexual awakening, 'Somersault' is a breakthrough debut for both its director and its star."
