In his second outing as director after The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, actor/co-writer Tommy Lee Jones returns to the West with The Homesman. Three women living on the edge of the American frontier are driven mad by harsh pioneer life, and the task of saving them falls to the pious, independent-minded Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank, Academy Award winner for Million Dollar Baby and Boys Don't Cry).

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival, the gripping drama Whiplash stars Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now) as Andrew Neiman, a 19-year-old jazz drummer determined to rise to the top of the country's most elite music conservatory. One night, Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), a conductor equally known for his talent for teaching as he is for the terrifying method of his instruction, discovers Andrew practicing the drums, and the next day requests that he be transferred into his band. At first, Andrew is an "alternate," confined to turning the pages of the "core" drummer, but at the band's next competition, the core drummer's sheet music is misplaced and Andrew gets the opportunity to play. Though the act further alienates him from his fellow musicians, the band nonetheless wins the competition, and he seems poised to become Fletcher's new "favorite son." Andrew's maniacal effort to achieve perfection is further fueled by Fletcher's psychological brinksmanship. The nearer to perfection Andrew gets, the narrower his circle of intimates becomes until he is left only with Fletcher—and even that relationship is jeopardized by the ferocity of Andrew's ambitions. A journey that can be seen alternately as a descent into madness or an ascent to greatness comes to a crescendo on the biggest platform for Andrew's talents—the unforgiving stage of Carnegie Hall.

Bernardo Bertolucci's moody, sensual film stars Marlon Brando (in a performance of startling daring and fury) as an American widower who plays out his sex- and death-obsessed games with a young girl (Maria Schneider). He is a 45-year old American living in Paris, haunted by his wife's suicide. She is a 20-year-old Parisian beauty engaged to a young filmmaker. Though nameless to each other, these tortured souls come together to satisfy their sexual cravings in an apartment as bare as their dark, tragic lives. Bertolucci's most controversial masterpiece is complemented by the voluptuous images of cinematographer Vittorio Storaro and the superheated musical score of Gato Barbieri. Jean-Pierre Léaud co-stars.
