Sherlock Holmes [B-]

Up in the Air [A]

I'm Not There [A]
Beyond a Reasonable Doubt (2009) [D-]
American Violet [B]

This picture has no directorial flourish, but that's okay, the performances make it succeed on a level that is direct and to the point. Several performances shine, including the leading actress, as well as several supporting roles. Importantly, it doesn't become a movie about a couple of noble (white) northern lawyers at the end of the first act. They enter the story, and play a role, but Nicole Beharie is always the center of the story. Worth a look as a rental.
