The 40 Year Old Virgin(40 rokov panic) - Comedy by Judd Apatow. Comedian Steve Carell, a frequent contributor to the US satirical news program The Daily Show, stars as Andy Stitzer, an awkward man who has spent his forty years without ever having sex. When his friends learn Andy's secret, they set out to find him a woman. This leads him to Trish (Catherine Keener), a single mother who's hesitant to consummate the relationship because she's still reeling from a nasty breakup.

The Cave (Jaskyňa) - Sci-fi horror by Bruce Hunt. When scientists discover ancient ruins deep in a Romanian forest, a group of spelunkers travel into the caves within to discover what's inside. What they don't expect is that bloodthirsty creatures have made it their own.

Hotel Rwanda - Drama by Terry George. Emotionally raw and utterly devastating, this movie is the first mainstream account of the Rwandan genocide. Strong performances by Don Cheadle (as Paul Rusesabagina, a hotel manager who makes great sacrifices to save the lives of hundreds) and Sophie Okonedo (as Paul's wife, Tatiana) make this honest, brutal film far more watchable than it could have been.
