Terrence Malick, the universally acclaimed American filmmaker responsible for the key 1970s features Badlands and Days of Heaven, returns for a rare directorial outing with the sweeping period piece The New World -- an epic dramatization of Pocahontas' relationships with John Smith and John Rolfe. Malick's story opens at the dawn of the 17th century, just prior to the colonization of the United States -- when the North American population consisted of an interconnected series of native tribes. In April 1607, three maritime vessels approach the unfamiliar continent, with 103 sailors on board. As members of the Virginia Company, these adventurers carry a royal charter to mount a society on the edge of the new continent. John Smith (Colin Farrell) sits chained below one of the decks. He is a 27-year-old loose cannon, who, for his persistently rebellious acts, has been sentenced to death by hanging as soon as the ships dock. Nevertheless, Captain Christopher Newport (Christopher Plummer) acknowledges Smith's ability to aid with exploration and consents to pardon him as a result. Upon landing, Smith seeks assistance from local Native American tribes with colonization, but runs into the unexpected -- he falls desperately in love with Pocahontas, or "Playful One" (Q'orianka Kilcher), the daughter of the omnipotent Chief Powhatan (August Schellenberg). Needless to say, this does not sit well with Powhatan or the rest of the tribe. Moreover, the oft-bellicose Smith enters a head-to-head conflict with his fellow Britons when he finds his tempestuousness calmed by the tranquility of the new landscape, as the anger and violence of his shipmates concurrently build in the face of the Native Americans. Later, Smith temporarily returns to England; believing that Smith is dead, Pocahontas accepts the hand of plantation owner John Rolfe in marriage (with her father's blessing) and follows Rolfe back to the old country. When Smith returns to America, his intended is nowhere to be seen, and the entire community teeters on the brink of a British-Indian war. Malick shot the production on location in Virginia; it co-stars Jonathan Pryce, John Savage, and David Thewlis. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide

Foyle's War: The German Woman examines the effects of nationalist paranoia in the normally sleepy burgh of Hastings, where Foyle is stationed. It seems that a German immigrant has been interned by the local authorities in a manner so traumatic, it causes his wife to suffer a severe heart attack. As Foyle investigates the death, he learns that the town's detainment of Germans is more selective than one might think, and he begins to uncover suspicious activities that may have led to the woman's death. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide Foyle's War: The White Feather Michael Kitchen stars as the titular detective in this short series of mysteries set amidst the backdrop of England at the dawn of World War II. Foyle's War: The White Feather revolves around The White Feather, a pro-fascism group that's gaining some support in Foyle's part of town. But when one of the group's most prominent members is shot at a rally, Foyle is left to sort out who did it: the young Jewish man beaten by some of the group's members, the boyfriend of a girl who's been indoctrinated into the group, or someone else entirely. The White Feather co-stars Anthony Howell as Foyle's home-from-the-war partner Paul Milner. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide Foyle's War: Eagle Day Michael Kitchen stars as the titular detective in this short series of mysteries set amidst the backdrop of England at the dawn of World War II. In Foyle's War: Eagle Day, he and partner Milner (Anthony Howell) struggle to uncover the killer of a young cab driver found stabbed to death in the midst of an air raid, with nothing on his person but a golden locket. But as Foyle tries to trace the memento, complications arise as his pilot son Andrew (Julian Ovenden) arrives in Hastings, transferred by the R.A.F. to help test its radar system, the latest advance in British warfare. Andrew stumbles upon a cover-up of his own at his station, and soon both father and son are embroiled in a mystery larger than they could have ever imagined. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide Foyle's War: A Lesson In Murder Michael Kitchen stars as the titular detective in this short series of mysteries set amidst the backdrop of England at the dawn of World War II.

It seems that he died while in police custody, and the man who had him arrested, Judge Gascoigne (Oliver Ford Davies), is coming under a lot of scrutiny since the incident. Gascoigne rules over his court -- and his family -- with an iron fist, and as a result has made many a citizen more than a little perturbed. What's more, when Foyle learns of the secretive nature of the victim's former workplace -- a munitions factory -- he discovers yet another wrinkle to the case. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide Foyle's War: War Games No synopsis available.

Student Academy Award winner Cary Joji Fukunaga makes his feature directorial debut with this epic dramatic thriller following a Honduran teenager who reunites with her long-estranged father and attempts to emigrate to America with him in order to start a new life. Inspired by the director's firsthand experience with Central American immigrants, Sin Nombre opens to find dejected teenager Sayra (Paulina Gaitan) biding her time in Honduras while dreaming of a brighter future. Upon reuniting with the father she hasn't seen in years, Sayra seizes the opportunity to finally make her dreams a reality. Her father has a new family in the United States, and he's preparing to travel with her uncle to Mexico, where they will then cross the border to freedom. Meanwhile, in Mexico, Tapachula teen Casper (aka Casper, played by Edgar Flores), has gotten caught up with the notorious Mara Salvatrucha street gang. He's just delivered a new recruit to the Maras in the form of desperate 12-year-old Smiley (Kristyan Ferrer), and though the youngster's initiation proves particularly rough, she adapts to gang life rather quickly. As involved as Casper is with the Mara, he does his best to keep his relationship with girlfriend Martha Marlene (Diana Garcia) a secret from the gang. Just as Martha encounters ruthless Mara leader Lil' Mago (Tenoch Huerta MejÃa) and suffers a grim fate at the hands of the gang, Sayra and her relatives arrive at the Tapachula train yards and prepare to rush a U.S.-bound freight train with a horde of other immigrants. Rather than attempting to gain access to the cars, Sayra and the rest of the immigrants decide to ride atop the train. Little do they realize that their lives are now in danger, because Lil' Mago has recruited Casper and Smiley to rob the immigrants as they make their way to the United States. When dawn comes and Lil' Mago makes his move, Casper finally decides to stand up to the tyrannical gang leader. Now, as the train winds though the Mexican countryside, Sayra's only hope of surviving the journey and making her way to a new beginning is to align herself with Casper as he flees from the most feared gang in Tapachula. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
