Less Than Perfect's Sara Rue is beguiling in a drama about a pair of outcasts, although the film strains too hard to be fresh. Rue plays a would-be rocker who journeys from Ohio to New York City with a gay pal (Kett Turton) to sing in a Stevie Nicks look-alike contest. (Not rated)

Rhinoceros Eyes

A strange youth (Michael Pitt) who works at a prop house goes to criminal lengths to satisfy requests for hard-to-obtain props. Tyro writer-director Aaron Woodley shows promise, but this surrealistic thriller wears thin fast. (R)

The Twilight Samurai

An Oscar nominee for Best Foreign film, this moving, measured Japanese drama is the non-Hollywood version of Tom Cruise's The Last Samurai. In the 1800s, a low-level widowed warrior (Hiroyuki Sanada) just wishes to raise his two daughters and tend his farm in peace. Fate has other plans. (Not rated)
