You like Nicolas Cage? Well, we’ve got Nicolas Cage at his Nicolas Cagey-est this week in two crime thrillers playing slightly off-kilter bad guys on opposite sides of the law (yes, one’s a cop!). If you’re in the mood for something a little more uplifting, we’ve also got a journey of cultural discovery and a Baz Luhrmann musical to maintain balance in our universe.
This week, we’ve got Forest Whitaker as a brutal dictator, Robert Redford in the CIA, and Jodie Foster as a domineering nun. Can you say “playing against type”? Watch these actors and others prove that great actors can play any role, and they can make us believe.
