    Comedy
    Filmed on location in a ravishing Paris of quiet back streets and familiar locales, My Old Lady is a touching romantic drama about inheritance and past secrets coming home to roost. Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) is a down-on-his-luck New Yorker who inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father. But when he arrives in France to sell the vast domicile, he's shocked to discover a live-in tenant. His apartment is a viager-an ancient French real estate system with complex rules pertaining to its resale-and the feisty Englishwoman Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith, "Downton Abbey"), who has lived in the apartment with her daughter Chloe (Kristin Scott Thomas) for many years, is not prepared to budge. With no place to go, Mathias strikes a tentative lodging arrangement with Mathilde, instantly clashing with suspicious, lovelorn Chloe over his private dealings with a rapacious property developer. With its unique blend of comedy, drama and ultimately romance, My Old Lady marks the directorial debut of internationally celebrated playwright Israel Horovitz, adapting his own hit play.

After a long and eventful life, Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and that the days are getting tedious. When the celebration of his 100th birthday approaches, which Allan isn't interested in at all, he decides to escape his boring everyday life. He climbs out of a window and a series of events embarks him on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving a gang of criminals, murderers, a suitcase stuffed with cash, an elephant and an incompetent policeman. It would be the adventure of a lifetime for anyone else, but to Allan it is just ordinary life. Not only has he witnessed some of the most important events of the twentieth century, he has actually played a key role in them. Although Allan is completely uninterested in politics and religion, he seems to have affected most of the last century's major world events. We also get to follow Allan's previous escapades. How he, among other things helped to invent the atomic bomb, and became good friends with everyone from U.S. presidents to Russian tyrants. For a hundred years Allan Karlsson did rattle the world, and now he's on the loose again.

    Drama
    Rosewater is based on the best-selling memoir by Maziar Bahari. The film is the directorial debut of Jon Stewart, and stars Gael Garcia Bernal. Rosewater follows the Tehran-born Bahari, a journalist with Canadian citizenship. In June 2009, Bahari returned to Iran to interview Mir-Hossein Mousavi, who was the challenger to president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. As Mousavi's supporters protested Ahmadinejad's victory declaration hours before the polls closed, Bahari endured personal risk by sending footage of the street riots to the BBC. Bahari was arrested by police, led by a man identifying himself as "Rosewater," who tortured and interrogated him over the next 118 days. With Bahari's wife leading an international campaign to have her husband freed, and media outlets keeping the story alive, Iranian authorities released Bahari on bail and the promise he would act as a spy for the government.
