Now Playing Synopsis: Dominic Cooper (An Education) headlines director Lee Tamahori's fact-based docudrama centering on the nightmarish experiences of an Iraqi army lieutenant whose life became a living hell after he was hand-selected to be a "fiday" (body double) for Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's ruthless son Uday. Baghdad, 1987: Iraqi soldier Latif Yahia (Cooper) becomes privy to the inner workings of the royal family after receiving an offer he can't refuse. Desperate to protect his family and terrified of making any fatal missteps, Latif studies Uday's every personal tick in order to become the spitting image of the so-called "Black Prince." While some Iraqis might have been honored to be presented with such a unique opportunity, Uday's unparalleled sadism and debauched lifestyle quickly began to eat away at the very core of Latif's soul. As war with Kuwait looms on the horizon, Latif finds himself increasingly drawn to Uday's ravishing mistress Sarrab (Ludivine Sagnier), a woman with her own terrifying tales to tell about time spent with Iraq's cruelest son. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Dominic Cooper, Ludivine Sagnier, Raad Rawi, Philip Quast Movie Details Play Trailer Movie Review
Now Playing Synopsis: At a time when some feel that technology is driving us farther apart rather than bringing us closer together, young filmmaker Joseph Garner cuts his ties with friends and family to see if he can survive using nothing but Craigslist for a full month. These days, it feels as if we've become so fixated on the smart phones, computers, and tablets we constantly use that we've lost the ability to look others in the eye, and form a real connection. As the sense of community that Americans once enjoyed seems to become a relic of the recent past, Garner wonders if perhaps it hasn't gone away, but simply taken a different form in the digital age. Now with his pockets empty, his phonebook blank, and nothing to fall back on but the grace of stranger, Garner will strike out on his own, and put that theory to the ultimate test. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Joseph Garner, David Garner, Michael Garner, Angelique Sheppard, Uday Sehgal, Juliane Mesiroff, Nathan Stuart, Sarah Boos, Tony Topete, Joanne Licardo, Rachel Holbrook, Susan Harmon, Walter Sherrick, Rachel Harmon, Mohammed Al-Maly, Kristen Bargender, Lara Margelofsky, Brian "B.
