Iron Man 2 — The first Iron Man is generally regarded as one of the best comic book adaptations of all time. And while buzz for the sequel might not be as strong, with a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sam Rockwell, Mickey Rourke, and Don Cheadle — plus stunts and action far as the eye can see — this is sure to be a must-see for fans of the superhero genre.
Mother and Child — Director Rodrigo Garcia seamlessly weaves together the stories of a woman who gave up her daughter for adoption as a teen (Annette Bening), that child now all grown up (Naomi Watts), and a married woman eager to adopt (Kerry Washington) in this well-acted, expertly directed drama. Out actress Cherry Jones plays the nun who links the stories, and Bening, Watts, and Washington all offer up Oscar-worthy performances.
