Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff & r & & r & RV -- "We watch TV in four separate rooms and IM each other when it's time to eat," says despondent dad Robin Williams. The solution to familial fragmentation, in his mind, is a long-ass RV trip. Lessons will be learned, cars will be rolled. Rated PG





United 93 -- British writer-director Paul Greengrass pulls no punches in his hypothesis of what happened aboard the terrorist-hijacked plane that went down in a field in Pennsylvania on 9/11. This is a harrowing film, played out in real time (a la 24) that takes place inside the doomed plane as well as in air-traffic control centers that were trying to make sense of what was going on. Full of heroism, anger and sadness. (ES) Rated R





Akeelah and the Bee -- That Larry Fishburne -- boy, can he act. Here he plays mentor to a Crenshaw youth with a gift for stringing letters together in the way that creates language. Full of accessible tropes, it's at once an underdog story, a rags-to-riches story and a spelling bee story. And that's the most universal story of all. Rated PG





Stick It -- "Every day I break the law ... of gravity!" says bad girl gymnast Hailey Graham, who hates those activist judges and their creative "punishments." After a little run-in with the Five-Oh, the former beam-balancer is ordered by a judge to re-enter the gymnastics academy she deserted a year earlier. Bring-It-On-demonium ensues. Rated PG-13
