Genre: Drama; Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, Julianne Moore, Edie Falco; Director: Joe Roth; Author: Richard Price; Release Date Wide: 02/17/2006; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Sony Pictures Releasing

A dying-to-be-cathartic drama of American racial turmoil. It’s set in and around a New Jersey housing project, where Brenda (Julianne Moore) claims she was the victim of a carjacking. Samuel L. Jackson is the cop who pries the truth out of her. Strenuous and joyless, the film keeps showing you the seams of its good intentions.
