Overview

Synopsis

The Way Back
A small band of multicultural convicts stages a daring escape from a World War II-era Siberian gulag, and embarks on a treacherous journey across five countries in a desperate race for freedom and survival. Adapted from author Slavomir Rawicz's gripping memoir The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom, writer/director Peter Weir's sweeping POW drama stars Jim Sturgess, Colin Farrell, Ed Harris, and Saoirse Ronan. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Day of the Falcon
The long-running feud between an emir and a sultan reignites following a surprising discovery about the strip of land that has been the source of so much contention in this drama from acclaimed director Jean-Jacques Annaud (The Name of the Rose, Seven Years in Tibet). Nesib (Antonio Banderas), emir of Hobeika, and Amar (Mark Strong), sultan of Salmaah, both claim ownership of the Yellow Belt, a vast area of land that separates the two men. Eventually, Nesib and Amar strike an agreement that seems to satisfy them both: In exchange for Nesib adopting Amar's sons Saleeh and Auda, the Yellow Belt will remain a no-man's-land. Years later, Saleeh has grown into a fierce warrior and dreams of reuniting with his father, while Auda remains content to spend his days reading and soaking up knowledge. Tensions begin to simmer between the two adversaries once again, however, when a Texas oil prospector reveals to Nesib that the Yellow Belt is brimming with black gold, and that selling it could mean untold riches. As Nesib grows obsessed with the idea of attaining unlimited wealth and power, the ultimate confrontation draws near. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box
A courageous teen embarks on a magical quest to rescue his kidnapped brother and find their missing parents in this sprawling fantasy adventure. Mariah Mundi (Aneurin Barnard) is a typical 17-year-old kid who never knew what mysteries the world had to offer until his family vanished without a trace. Now, in order to get them back, Mariah must find a way to the opulent Prince Regent Hotel -- but getting there won't be easy, because treacherous secrets spell danger at every impasse, and child-snatching monsters await him at every turn. Meanwhile, with a mysterious ancient artifact finally within reach, the young adventurer must discover the true meaning of responsibility in order to wield its formidable power for the forces of good, and rescue his loved ones. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
