Russell's SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK; Edward Burns’ THE FITZGERALD FAMILY CHRISTMAS; Steve James’ HEAD GAMES; THE SESSIONS starring Helen Hunt and John Hawkes; HYDE PARK ON THE HUDSON with Bill Murray and Laura Linney; and Michael Haneke’s AMOUR, Austria’s official submission to the 2013 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film.
