Gran Torino
Clint Eastwood directs and stars in this story about a growly loner Korean War vet and ex-auto worker in Detroit whose casual (and strangely hilarious) racism is challenged by his new Asian neighbors, whose lives he gets involved with once a street gang starts to terrorize them.

New In Town
Renee Zellweger is an upwardly-mobile businesswoman in Miami who gets assigned to a project in Minnesota, and must then figure out how to deal with a blue-collar frozen-tundra lifestyle. Thankfully, Harry Connick Jr. is there to be her guide.
