Synopsis

David's Mother
Kirstie Alley earned a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in this moving made-for-TV drama. She plays Sally Goodson, the devoted mother of autistic child David. Abandoned by her husband years before, Sally has sacrificed much for her son but has felt it in his best interest. One of the key things she accomplished was keeping her son out of the institution that the government feels is in his best interest. Unfortunately, she could not avoid "the System" forever and when a well-meaning social worker learns that the boy is still in Sally's care, a heated battle ensues. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The Dress Code
Shirley MacLaine makes her feature directorial debut with this offbeat comedy. Bruno (Alex D. Linz) is an eight-year-old boy attending a Catholic school; he is bright, is a good student, and wants to become an etymologist. He also likes to wear dresses, which causes him plenty of problems -- bullies beat him up on a regular basis, and the school's Mother Superior (Kathy Bates) thinks that something must be wrong with him. Bruno's mother Angela (Stacey Halprin), who tips the scales at 450 pounds, has just lost her husband Dino (Gary Sinise) to trampy Donna Marie (Joey Lauren Adams). With her pal Dolores (Jennifer Tilly) giving Angela regular reports on Dino's activities, she's too occupied to worry much about her son. When Bruno is hurt one day while wearing a skirt, he's taken to the hospital; with Angela suffering from a heart attack and Dino refusing to look after him, it falls to his grandmother Helen (MacLaine) to take care of the boy. But Bruno has finally found a playmate at school who doesn't find him strange -- Shaniqua (Kaimi Davael), a young black girl who wants to be a cowgirl. While Bruno was Shirley MacLaine's first attempt at directing a fictional film, it was not her first experience behind the camera; she previously made the Oscar-nominated documentary The Other Half of the Sky: A China Memoir. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Who Loves the Sun
When the former best friend of a now-successful writer suddenly appears following an extended absence, the confrontation that follows will alter their views of the past and forever transform the future in a simmering tale of lost friendship from director Matt Bissonnette. It's been five long years since Daniel Bloom (Adam Scott) has heard from his longtime friend Will Morrison (Lukas Haas). After growing up together and even seeing Daniel serve as best man at Will's wedding to the beautiful Maggie (Molly Parker), no one would have suspected that the pair would part ways on such awkward terms. Now, after half a decade away, Will has suddenly appeared on the doorstep of Mary (Wendy Crewson) and Arthur's (R.H. Thompson) remote island cottage. Subsequently summoned back to his childhood haunt by a concerned phone call from his mother, Daniel departs from New York to finally find what became of the long-missing Will. But quite a bit has changed since those innocent days of youth, and just as the harsh words exchanged between the pair suddenly erupt into physical violence, Mary receives word that Maggie is waiting to be picked up at the local dock. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
