The Boss of It All: The head of a small IT firm has convinced his employees that there's a higher boss who's to blame for all layoffs and budget crunches; suddenly he's forced to hire an actor to play the guy. Lars Von Trier's pleasantly wacky Danish film offers a thoughtful look at how far we'll go to avoid taking responsibility for our actions.

Gracie: When her soccer-star brother is killed in a car accident, the previously spurned girl of the family (Carly Schroeder) takes his place on the field. The film skillfully dramatizes a family coping with loss, but the sports subplot has a movie-of-the-week predictability.
