The Way Back
Let's start with one of the good ones. 'The Way Back' is directed by Peter Weir, who was responsible for 'Master and Commander,' 'Dead Poets Society,' and 'The Truman Show.' It stars Ed Harris and Colin Farell as well as lesser known actors like Jim Sturgess and Mark Strong. A survival epic set against an incredibly authentic backdrop, 'The Way Back' is one not to miss.
No Strings Attached
Even on paper this movie doesn't look good. It's directed by the very hit-or-miss Ivan Reitman and stars the duo of Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman. Critics are split towards the negative on this one, calling out the mismatched cast as the primary problem.
The Company Men (limited)
Affleck is back and he doesn't disappoint in 'The Company Men,' a movie about how Affleck's character and a few of his co-workers - played by Chris Cooper, and Tommy Lee Jones - deal with life after downsizing. It's a truthful telling of the tale, and one that's well worth watching.
