J. EDGAR illuminates the dark corners of America's past with an ambition only attainable by an American master like Clint Eastwood. Armed with an impassioned script by Dustin Lance Black, Eastwood presents an intimate portrait of FBI Chief Hoover while moving effortlessly back and forth through time and in and out of shadows. Leonardo DiCaprio gives meaning to a monster in a towering performance that digs beneath Hoover's G-man public image to the private man who kept a nation's secrets while zealously guarding his own.

FROST/NIXON brings history to life with such dramatic intensity that audiences feel eyewitness to a duel of titans from the worlds of politics and journalism. Ron Howard and screenwriter Peter Morgan, working in perfect harmony, have reinvented Morgan's stage play in cinematic terms, making it a dynamic ensemble piece where warring camps ready for battle. Tour de force performances by Frank Langella as Richard Nixon and Michael Sheen as David Frost command the screen with all the power of a Shakespeare play. This is not only a film about an historic event, but also the blinding light of hubris and the fight for how one is to be remembered. FROST/NIXON will be remembered as a classic.

A BEAUTIFUL MIND is one of the few films ever to suggest that the life of the mind can be as exciting and intriguing as any thriller. Based on the story of Nobel Prize-winning mathematician John Nash, the film's subtle, but masterful cinematic technique puts audiences inside the mind of a troubled genius when he begins to question reality.
