Who are Kings of Leon? In 2002 brothers Nathan, Caleb, and Jared Followill, along with their cousin Matthew, formed the grungy alternative rock band in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. Now they have millions of fans around the world. But growing up in the South was far from harmonious. Most of the brothers' young lives were spent in poverty, living in the back of an Oldsmobile while touring around the Bible Belt from church to church with the brothers' father, Ivan Leon, a Pentecostal preacher, and their mother BettyAnn, who tried desperately to ground the family during their travels. Rebelling from the God-fearing gypsy lifestyle in true rocker fashion, the young men turned to secular music and a few recreational drugs in Nashville... and the rest is history etched in platinum and gold. Wisely anchoring this energetic behind-the-scenes documentary is the annual family reunion in the backwoods of Talihina, Tennessee, where the boys unwind with horseshoe throwing, beer guzzling, and a dip in the creek. First-time director Stephen C. Mitchell sculpts a youthful, honest, and vibrant look at what fuels the creative fire of these budding rock legends, providing fascinating insight for fans and non-fans alike. -- (C) Tribeca

Their crimes resemble high-octane Hollywood action movies: a sports car speeds through a Dubai shopping mall, crashing into the windows of a Graff jewelry store. Masked, gun-wielding men jump out of the car and stuff fistfuls of diamonds into their satchels before screeching off. In London, they took all of three minutes to make off with $30 million in diamonds. Dubbed the Pink Panthers, they're captured - on surveillance tapes that record their astonishing lightning strikes with hypnotic accuracy. A 2010 New Yorker article by David Samuels described them as "a spectacularly inventive and elusive gang of jewel thieves... who've robbed 152 jewelry stores" in Europe, Asia and the Mid-East, of diamonds worth a quarter-billion dollars, since 2002. They're believed to be a loose confederation of 20-30 men (and women), many from Serbia and Montenegro, who "grew up in an atmosphere of wholesale corruption" after the break-up of the former Yugoslavia. Some are in jail. Others agree to be interviewed by Havana Marking so long as their identities are kept secret - which Marking handles cleverly by creating animated versions of the live action interviews. Today... they continue to smash and grab. (c) Film Forum

Having married the adopted Malay daughter of the wealthy Captain Lingard inorder to obtain an inheritance that has failed to materialize, Almayer has become isolated and bitter, trapped in his remote trading post, and investing all his emotional energy in his own beloved daughter, Nina.

Later, with thugs and assassins closing in from all sides, Walker realizes that the only way to save his daughter is to use the skills he learned in Afghanistan on the mean streets of L.A. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
