Angel Eyes (2001, 104 min., R)

Its heart is never in the wrong place, but Angel Eyes is what Roger Ebert calls an “Identikit movie.” Director Mandoki and screenwriter Gerald DiPego (both of whom you may recall from 1999's Message in a ...

Angela's Ashes (2000, 145 min., R)

Angie (1994, 107 min., R)

Anna and the King (1999, 147 min., PG-13)
