The Intouchables: Billed as being "based on a true story," this film centers on an unlikely friendship that develops between a wealthy, white quadriplegic (Franois Cluzet) and a streetwise, black ne'er-do-well (Omar Sy) who becomes his live-in companion. It's a minor gem of nuanced performances and sublime directorial craftsmanship.

- Marc Savlov

Playing for Keeps: After a career-ending injury, a European soccer star (Gerard Butler) tries to reconnect with his 9-year-old son (Noah Lomax) by coaching his soccer team. Grooming Butler for future rom-coms seems to be the movie's primary aim, along with making soccer moms out of Uma Thurman and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

- Scott Renshaw
