Footloose: In this remake, a teenage newcomer (Kenny Wormald) shakes up a small town's conservative status quo. Co-writer/director Craig Brewer seems to have a sincere affection for this story, and it spills over into an appealing, energetic musical drama.

The Skin I Live In: A gorgeous woman (Elena Anaya) in a skintight bodysuit is a prisoner in the mansion/research facility of a suave Spanish surgeon (Antonio Banderas). There are big surprises in Pedro Almodóvar's enjoyably loopy sex thriller.
