I'll toss out a couple we've caught in the last few weeks:
Arn: The Knight Templar Subtitled. The biggest budget ($30 mil) movie ever done in Sweden, too bad we can only get the International version here. It was actually done in two parts for the theaters in Sweden, then was shown as an 8 hour miniseries on TV. Similar to The Kingdom of Heaven from Ridley Scott (another great flick but only if you do the Director's Cut, otherwise it doesn't work well).
Dear Frankie Great date night flick about a woman on the run with her deaf son. She has told the boy for years his dad is in the merchant marine, but then the ship is coming to the town they live in. Has to find someone to "play" dad. Early flick for Gerard Butler, and one of the best things he has done. Scottish made indie flick.
Closet Land An early '90s flick from Amnesty International starring only two actors: Alan Rickman and Madeleine Stowe. Rickman is amazing in it. The "interview" of an author of children's books (Stowe) by an agent of The Government convinced it is subversive in it's message. Riveting and NOT an easy movie to get through.
Worlds Fastest Indian Anthony Hopkins in what he says is his favorite movie. The story of Burt Monroe from New Zealand who attempts to fulfill his life long dream to set a land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Feel good flick and a true story to boot.
A Very Long Engagement French film with Audrey Tautou (The Davinci Code, Amelie) starring as a young women relentlously looking for her fiance', who has disappeared from the trenches of the Somme during WWI. Subtitles again, but worth it. Amazing movie in HD, the cinematography is fantastic.
