High school dropout White Mike (Chace Crawford) is living large as a dealer of weed and an Ecstasy-like pill called Twelve to rich teens in New York’s Upper East Side. But Mike’s luck turns fast when his cousin is killed and his best friend is arrested for the crime. Based on 17-year-old Nick McDonell’s acclaimed 2002 novel, this gripping drama also stars Emma Roberts, Rory Culkin, Kiefer Sutherland and 50 Cent.


Becky and Sandra aren’t the best of friends. Sandra is a middle-aged manager at a fast-food restaurant; Becky is a teenaged counter girl who really needs the job. One stressful day (too many customers and too little bacon), a police officer calls, accusing Becky of stealing money from a customer’s purse, which she vehemently denies. Sandra, overwhelmed by her managerial responsibilities, complies with the officer’s orders to detain Becky. This choice begins a nightmare that tragically blurs the lines between expedience and prudence, legality and reason.

The Maid’s Room

Set and filmed on Long Island, “The Maid’s Room” follows Drina (Paula Garces), an immigrant who takes a job for the season as live-in maid to the Crawfords, a privileged New York family who maintain a splendid home in the Hamptons. Mr. and Mrs. Crawford spend most of their time in the city, but their teenage son, Brandon, spends the summer on the beach, and Drina must look after him and his spoiled friends. The maid’s room is next to the garage, and Drina overhears Brandon when he returns late one night, noisily and obviously drunk. The next day, she reads in the local paper that there has been a fatal hit and run, and notices that Brandon’s car is battered and bloodied. She then realizes that, for once, she may have power over her employers.
