Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde) is Tracy Flick, a straight "A" go-getter who's determined to be president of Carver High's student body.

Here's a smart, witty and hilarious jab at high school politics helmed by award-winning director Alexander Payne (Sideways).
You Can Count On Me
Oscar-nominated Laura Linney shines in this critically acclaimed comedy-drama about the joys and conflicts of a brother and sister. Sammy (Linney) and Terry (Mark Ruffalo) lead opposite lives, but have had an unbreakable bond since being orphaned years earlier. After leading a carefree and careless lifestyle, the wayward brother steps back into Sammy and her son Rudy's lives. Terry alternately clashes with, disappoints and inspires his sister, while becoming a hero to, and a bad influence on, his young nephew.
