This movie sort of passed in and out of multiplexes, about Kathryn Bolkovac, a cop who outed the U.N. for covering up a sex scandal after working in post-war Bosnia as a peacekeeper. Reviews were mixed, but you have some excellent actors - Rachel Weisz, David Strathairn, Vanessa Redgrave - plus an overlooked real-life scandal that should make for an engrossing diversion.

Isabelle Huppert, she of sexually provocative French roles, stars in an erotic drama about a high-class prostitute who crosses paths with a psychoanalyst having marriage issues, finding the two have more in common that one would think in their professions.
