MOVIES: What To Watch

THE OSCAR CONTENDER: Black Book (Carice van Houten, Sebastian Koch)
This Dutch film about a young Jewish girl in Holland trying to escape the Holocaust is no Schindler's List, but it's pretty darn close. The movie is thoroughly en-grossing, although many scenes test the limits of graphic violence. Don't say we didn't warn you.

THE YOU'RE GONNA-NEED-A-KLEENEX FILM: Pride (Terrence Howard, Bernie Mac)
Pride is based on the true story of an inner-city swim coach who turns a bunch of misfit neighborhood boys into Michael Phelps wannabes. If you've seen Glory Road, Remember the Titans, or the slew of other based-on-a-true-story tearjerker sport films, then you know where it's headed. We promised ourselves we wouldn't cry this time-damn you, Terrence Howard!

THE SMART SATIRE: The TV Set (David Duchovny, Sigourney Weaver)
A scriptwriter (Duchovny) gets the green light for a drama based on his brother's suicide. The network suits worry it's too depressing and want to lighten it up for ratings' sake. Hilarity ensues. Don't miss the clip from the fictional reality show Slut Wars during the credits.
