  • The latest "Dawson's Creek" alumnus to break out of his WB bonds, Joshua Jackson proves himself all grown up in this sweetly scrappy indie. show more

  • Although it is overloaded with backstory and often tries too hard, Aurora Borealis finds a reasonable balance between romance and family drama. show more

  • The real surprise here is Lewis, who seems to have finally hit on a role that balances her usual flakiness with smarts and an offbeat poignancy, and she delivers the strongest work of her adult career. show more
