After being dealt some bad luck in the studio system with the underwhelming action flick Aeon Flux and the undervalued horror comedy Jennifer’s Body, director Karyn Kusama emerges with her best film since she made her feature debut with 2000's Girlfight. The Invitation is an exceptionally unnerving thriller, a sharp study in the horrors of platonic indulgence and the over-extension of courtesy.

A little over a month ago we saw the first trailer for The Age of Adaline, the new romantic drama that, at first glance, seems like it could be a bit schmaltzy. But with a great cast and the skills of director Lee Toland Krieger (Celeste and Jesse Forever), The Age of Adaline looks like it could be rather surprising.

At first glance, there's something a little "female version of 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button'" about this trailer for 'The Age of Adaline'—the film has a fantastical, darkly whimsical quality to its tale of a woman (Blake Lively) who doesn't age due to a freakish accident.
