Italian Writer/Director Francesca Gregorin’s The Truth About Emanuel is an intimate psychodrama with a small cast, a Twilight Zonish twist, and a whole lot of weirdness. Kaya Scodelario plays Emanuel, a teen whose mother died in childbirth and she, as her first-person voiceover narration reveals, blames herself for the death. She’s now a teen and has spent her life traumatized by the event. Raised by her doting dad Dennis (Alfred Molina), Emanuel is dramatic and remote, but she emerges from her shadow occasionally to annoy her bewildered new stepmom Janice (Frances O’Connor), who sees Emanuel for who she is and is growing tired of Dennis creating excuses for her. The story focuses on the lead-up to Emanuel’s 18th birthday. She dates a guy named Claude (Aneurin Barnard) for a while, but takes an immediate interest in Linda (Jessica Biel) who moves in next door with »

You guys, the future is the worst!
"The Maze Runner" is the first in a trilogy of books by James Dashner about a dude named Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) who's tossed into a weird new world called the Glade. The Glade's main feature (other than a lack of adults, it seems) is that it's in the middle of a maze, and no one's ever gotten out of the maze alive, and also there are terrifying creatures lurking in and around the maze. It's a real "Lord of the Flies" sort of sausage fest up in here -- until Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) shows up.
It's clear that Thomas and Teresa are there to shake things up, but first they've gotta figure out some stuff. Like, who are they? Do they already know each other? What exactly is slithering around that maze, anyhow? Why will it take them three books (and presumably three movies) to escape the maze, »
