Set in a small Alabama town in 1969, the film follows the aftermath of the death of an eccentric family’s long-estranged wife and mother. Two different families come together for the funeral, bringing up old scars and threatening to expose secrets.
The movie was released on a handful of theaters, but wasn’t loved by critics, who said it as bloated. New York Times‘ Stephen Holden said, “In its best moments, you can see what the film might have »
The rusted-out soul of steel-town America and the ghosts of the 1970s post-Vietnam Hollywood cinema haunt Scott Cooper’s “Out of the Furnace,” a starkly powerful drama that in some ways feels like an Iraq-era bookend to “The Deer Hunter,” with bare-knuckle boxing substituted for Russian roulette. A much darker and less audience-friendly package than Cooper’s Oscar-winning 2009 debut, “Crazy Heart,” but graced by the same lyrical sense of worn-down American lives, this slow-burning drama should earn deserved praise for the top-drawer performances of stars Christian Bale, Casey Affleck and a truly frightening Woody Harrelson, but will need a lot of TLC from distrib Relativity (which opens the pic wide on Dec. 6) to break out commercially in a very crowded holiday frame.
The furnace of the title is literally the Carrie Furnace of Braddock, Penn., the real Rust Belt town where Cooper’s pic is set. But it is also »

The story centers on a family who are terrorized by a group of mysterious intruders. As the night unfolds, they slowly begin to learn the rules of this dangerous game they are playing. Ioan Gruffudd plays the father to Chandler Riggs's character and the previously-attached Bella Thorne. Natalie Martinez also stars as the stepmother.
Commercials director Sean Carter is making his feature directorial debut, working from a screenplay by first-time writer Joseph Dembner. Voltage's Nicolas Chartier and Craig J. Flores are producing alongside Silver Pictures' Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman, who developed the script with Joseph Dembner. Joel Silver, Steve Richards and Michael Fiore are executive producing. No production schedule was given.

At this point, pretty much everybody has heard the big recent news. No, not the fact that Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher are returning as Luke, Han, and Leia for Star Wars Episode VII, but Pope Benedict XVI announcing his resignation – the first time a Pope has resigned since 1415 – and his successor being announced: Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, or Pope Francis, as he will be known.
In light of this, let's take a look at the film We Have a Pope (aka Habemus Papam), which, fittingly, not only concerns similar (if fictional) events, but also puts forth the theme of humility.
Whatever your religious views (or otherwise) may be, and whatever you may think of either Pope, the outgoing Pope's official statement (and in fact, the resignation itself) shows humility. To quote a few relevant parts of it:
"...both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, »
