    Watch Trailer For Acclaimed Thriller "96 Minutes" (Evan Ross & David Oyelowo Co-Star)

    We completely missed this trailer for 96 Minutes, a film we profiled back in March, soon after its debut at the SXSW Film Festival.

    The concept of the nuclear family is now something of an outdated notion. With children now found in a wide array of living situations -- single parents, gay parents, adoptions, etc. -- the "ideal" of a child being raised by a mommy and a daddy is shifting, with a newer idea of just two good parents -- whomever they may be -- being of utmost importance.

    In my last post on this a few days ago, I speculated that the reason why the film's title had been changed from Things Fall Apart (what it's been called from the start), to All Things Fall Apart, was that the company distributing the film (Image Entertainment) may have been influenced by the fact th...
