Master chef Kate Armstrong (Catherine Zeta-Jones) lives her life like she runs her kitchen at a trendy Manhattan eatery-with a no-nonsense intensity that both captivates and intimidates everyone around her. Kate's perfectionist nature is put to the test when she "inherits" her nine-year-old niece Zoe (Abigail Breslin), while contending with a brash new sous-chef who joins her staff. High-spirited and freewheeling, Nick Palmer (Aaron Eckhart) couldn't be more different from Kate, yet the chemistry between them is undeniable.

"This," said Prosecutor Leroy New, "has been the most terrible crime ever committed in the state of Indiana." It was the first crime of child abuse that broke through reticence and denial to register with the public. In Tommy O'Haver's film, "An American Crime," Academy Award nominee Catherine Keener portrays Gertrude Baniszewski, the seemingly ordinary housewife who imprisons and tortures a beautiful teenager, played by Gemini Award winner Ellen Page, in the basement of her house - two portrayals that will resonate with audiences long after they leave the theatre. "An American Crime," which also stars James Franco and Bradley Whitford, was produced by First Look Studios and Killer Films/John Wells.
