The Hours (Hodiny) - Drama by Stephen Daldry. Garnering a slew of nominations at last year's Academy Awards, including a Best Actress win for Nicole Kidman, the film interweaves the lives of three different women: writer Virginia Woolf (Kidman), a pregnant 1950s housewife (Julianne Moore), and a successful, but depressed woman in the early 21st century (Meryl Streep), using Woolf's character Mrs Dalloway to bind them together.

Seabiscuit - Drama by Gary Ross. A huge Hollywood summer box office success, this film is an early favourite for the Academy Awards. It tells the true story of the eponymous racehorse and the three men - the jockey (Tobey Maguire), the trainer (Chris Cooper), and the entrepreneurial owner (Jeff Bridges) - who led the underdog horse
to victory in Depression-era America.

Matchstick Men (Podvodníci) - Comedy/Drama by Ridley Scott. It is illegitimate business as usual for two con artists (Nicolas Cage and Sam Rockwell), until the older, obsessive-compulsive mentor (Cage) discovers that he has a teenage daughter (Alison Lohman) who wants to build a relationship with him.

A week before his execution, he agrees to give an interview to a major journalist (Kate Winslet). Upon hearing his story, she begins to doubt his guilt and then must race against the clock to clear his name before he is put to death.

Daddy Day Care (Kúzelná škôlka) - Comedy by Steve Carr. A pair of fathers (Eddie Murphy and Jeff Garlin) get laid off from their jobs, leaving them with nothing to do but take care of their children. It occurs to them that they could make money doing this, so they open up their own day care centre. Crazy antics ensue.
