    Toronto International Film Festival 2010: Beginners

    Mike Mills’s second feature (following the hyped but beyond underwhelming Thumbsucker) was written and directed as a tribute to his father, who, after his wife’s death had admitted his homosexuality in his mid-seventies, much to his son’s immense surprise, before dying himself a few years later.

    Spout About: "Resident Evil: Afterlife" -- Still Following Alice in Zombieland?

    Taking in almost $28 million, "Resident Evil: Afterlife" ruled the box office over the weekend. It's the biggest opening yet for the franchise, though the 3D surcharges were obviously a factor.
