Martial arts legend Tony Jaa writes, directs, produces and stars in "Ong Bak 3", the third and final installment in one of the most beloved action series of all time.

We live in the Age of Plastic. It's cheap and practical, and it's everywhere – even in our blood. But is it a danger to us?

A Somewhat Gentle Man (En ganske snill mann)
Ulrik (Stellan Skarsgard) is a somewhat gentle man, as far as gangsters go.

Reluctantly back on the streets following a stint in prison, Ulrik's boss greets him with open arms and a plan to settle an old score. With a demented sense of professional pride, Ulrik's boss sets in motion a plan to right the wrong done to his star employee.

The problem is Ulrik would rather go about his own business, however mundane, than get involved with his ragtag colleagues again. This dark feel good comedy delivers laughs and gasps in equal measure.

Starring Stellan Skarsgård, Bjørn Floberg, Gard B. Eidsvold, Jorunn Kjellsby, Bjørn Sundquist

Twelve Thirty
There are three women in the Langley household: Vivien (Karen Young), the mother, is caught between a fierce independence and an almost agoraphobic attachment to home; seductive and confident Mel (Portia Reiners) is a 19 year‐old mirror of her mother; Maura (Mamie Gummer), 22, is alienated, afraid and unable to pinpoint her place in the world. They live together in a seemingly close household, yet each is very much alone.

The man of the house, Martin (Reed Birney), left long ago to pursue a new way of life, but keeps a shadow presence: he maintains a comfortable erotic tie to his ex‐wife and a tentative relationship with Mel. Maura has all but shunned him.

The family's status quo explodes when Jeff (Jonathan Groff) walks into their comfortable yet dysfunctional world. Bright, handsome, ambitious and sure of his future at 22, he's also socially awkward and a sexual novice who's been Infatuated with Mel since high school. When they begin working together at the same restaurant, he jumps at the opportunity to finally start a romance with the free‐spirited girl – but Mel has other ideas about their time together.

Starring Jonathan Groff, Mamie Gummer, Karen Young, Halley Feiffer, Barbara Barrie
