After two weekends of momentous studio box office that seemed to hinder anticipated limited debuts from the likes of The Weinstein Company's "Silver Linings Playbook," Sony Pictures Classics' "Rust and Bone," Focus Features' "Anna Karenina" and Fox Searchlight's "Hitchcock," the studio numbers cooled and the resulting breathing room provided a nice boost to the noted indies, "Silver Linings" and "Rust and Bone" in particular.
