Amidst the wreckage, Colin discovers a briefcase that's overflowing with cold, hard cash. An honest man, he quickly hands it over to the local authorities. But this is just the beginning of a nightmare in which no one can be trusted, and now the harder Colin tries to flee this mysterious small town, the deeper he falls into its deadly grip. Jason Clarke, David Lyons, Emma Booth, and Travis McMahon star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

The Color of Lies
This thriller from veteran director Claude Chabrol is a tense suspense drama, leavened with sly humor, about the fallout from a shocking crime in a small town. Frederique Lesage (Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi), the new chief of police in a cozy and fashionable seaside community in Brittany, soon finds her job more eventful than she expected when a ten-year-old girl is found raped and murdered. The last person to see her alive was René Sterne (Jacques Gamblin), a cynical and once-famous artist who has fallen on hard times and gives drawing lessons to children to make ends meet. René, who is passionately devoted to his wife (Sandrine Bonnaire), a nurse whose perpetual good cheer is the polar opposite of his personality, quickly becomes the prime suspect in the absence of any real clues. Meanwhile, Frederique becomes better acquainted with the eccentric residents of the town, including a self-important TV journalist (Antoine de Caunes), a small-time crook who fences stolen goods (Pierre Marlot), and a curious pair of married shopkeepers (Bulle Ogier and Noel Simsolo). Chabrol's son Matthieu Chabrol composed the score for this film. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Two Men in Town
After 18 years in prison, a man (Forest Whitaker) emerges with a newfound Islamic faith and a desire to live honestly. He faces opposition from the county sheriff (Harvey Keitel), and is pushed to the breaking point by his former gang of criminals while adjusting to life on the outside. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

The Prey
A convicted bank robber breaks out of prison to protect his family after confiding sensitive information to an outwardly friendly cellmate, only to realize he's actually a madman who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
