The King’s Speech’s Guy Pearce and Lost’s Maggie Grace star in this action-thriller in which a falsely convicted ex-government agent must earn his freedom by saving the U.S. president’s daughter, who is being held captive in a maximum-security prison in outer space.

The Olsen twins’ younger sister, Elizabeth, stars as a young woman trapped inside her family’s secluded lakeside retreat. Directed by Open Water’s Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, this horror flick takes viewers on an increasingly suspenseful ride.
The Turin Horse
Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr’s final film is a fictional story of what happened to the horse that philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche saw being whipped in Turin, Italy, in 1889. In The Turing Horse, a farmer and his daughter must come to terms with their dying horse and what it will mean for their livelihoods.
