Details about Jane Eyre
When a member of Parliament (Jeremy Northam) learns that his career and marriage will suffer scandal unless he submits to a blackmailer (Julianne Moore), he turns his fate over to lifelong bachelor Lord Goring (Rupert Everett), "the idlest man in London." Brimming with witticisms and great performances (including those from Cate Blanchett and Minnie Driver), this big-screen adaptation of Oscar Wilde's stage play sparkles like vintage champagne.

Buenos Aires in the 1970s was a hotbed of dictatorial political unrest marked by a rash of disappearances (read: abductions and murders). Theatre director Carlos Rueda (Antonio Banderas) and his wife, Cecilia (Emma Thompson), get caught up in the flux when she writes an inflammatory editorial. When Cecilia's jailed, Carlos develops the supernatural ability to see the future -- a future where he imagines his wife dying during an escape attempt.
Details about Imagining Argentina
After saving each other from jumping off a bridge, Henry Bell (Sam Neill) and Karen Knightly (Helena Bonham Carter) plot to avenge the people who drove them to suicide. Henry will ruin the life of the woman (Kristin Scott Thomas) who married Karen's boyfriend, while Karen will work as a secretary for the man (Steve Coogan) who took Henry's job. Whether revenge will be sweet -- or bittersweet -- is anyone's guess.
