In a Better World: In this low-key Danish thriller, a grieving, angry schoolboy (William JÃhnk Nielsen) befriends a bullied kid (Markus Rygaard), then ratchets up a campaign of mayhem. The story is pretty gripping, but the conclusion is simplistic, and so are the implied reasons for the lad's violent streak.

Prom: A straitlaced prom-planning chair (Aimee Teegarden) seeks to bring together disparate cliques for a night to remember. Disney's tween film is comically myopic about the real confusions and conundrums surrounding prom.
