A gripping mix of friendship, violence, and redemption erupts in the contemporary South in this adaptation of Larry Brown's novel, celebrated at once for its grit and its deeply moving core. Directed by David Gordon Green (PRINCE AVALANCHE, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, ALL THE REAL GIRLS), the film brings Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage back to his indie roots in the title role as the hard-living, hot-tempered, ex-con Joe Ransom, who is just trying to dodge his instincts for trouble- until he meets a hard luck kid, (Tye Sheridan, MUD, TREE OF LIFE), who awakens in him a fierce and tender hearted protector. The story begins as Joe hires teenaged Gary Jones and his destitute father onto his 'tree-poisoning' crew for a lumber company. Joe might be notoriously reckless with his pick-up, his dog, and especially with women, but he sees somthing in Gary that gets to him: a determination, a raw decency, and a sense of resilience he can barely believe in anymore. They form an unlikely bond, and when Gary finds himself facing a threat greater than he knows how to handle, he turns to Joe- and sets off a chain of events that play out with the brutal inevitability of tragedy and the beauty of a last stab at salvation.

In the Unknown Known, Academy Award-winning director Errol Morris (The Fog of War) offers a mesmerizing portrait of Donald Rumsfeld, one of the key artchitects of the Iraq War; and a larger-than-life character who provoked equal levels of fury and adulation from the American public. Rather than conducting a conventional interview, Morris has Rumsfeld perform and expound on his tens of thousands of memos (many never previously published) he composed as a congressman and as an advisor to four different presidents, twice as Secretary of Defense. These memos provide a window onto history not as it actually happened, but as Rumsfeld wants us to see it. Morris makes plain that Rumsfeld intended to elucidate, rationalize, obfuscate, or control history and it contradicted by the facts. THE UNKNOWN KNOWN is an illumination of the mystery of Donald Rumsfled, an unknown known.

Jason Bateman (Identity Thief) makes his feature directorial debut with the subversive comedy Bad Words. Mr. Bateman stars as Guy Trilby, a 40-year old who finds a loophole in the rules of The Golden Quill national spelling bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition. Contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious 8th graders are no match for Guy, as he ruthlessly crushes their dreams of victory and fame. As a reporter (Kathryn Hahn) attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year old Chaitanya (Rohan Chand of Homeland), who is completely unfazed by Guy's take-no-prisoners approach to life.
