Red Eye(Nočný let) - Thriller by Wes Craven. Rachel McAdams excels as Lisa, a tough, smart young woman flying home to Miami after her grandmother's funeral.
The Legend of Zorro (Legenda o Zorrovi) - Action by Martin Campbell. Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones return for this sequel to the 1995 movie about the masked swordfighter.
Other movies playing
My Summer of Love (Moje leto lásky) - Drama by Pawel Pawlikowski. This coming-of-age love story about two young women (Natalie Press and Emily Blunt) may benefit from its two charismatic lead actresses, but it ultimately suffers from an identity crisis.
Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (Prekliatie králikodlaka) - Comedy by Nick Park and Steve Box. Nick Park's beloved claymation characters (one human, one canine) finally get a full-length film for their misadventures.
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 40 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.
