You may be confused about the title of this opera. That's because it's TWO operas. There's a long-standing tradition of showing these two operas, "Cavalleria Rusticana," by Mascagni, and "Pagliacci," by Leoncavallo, on the same billing. They're both quite brief, and in a similar style, so it works. One of the most famous images in all of opera -- Pavarotti putting white clown makeup on while crying and singing a sad, sad song -- is from Pagliacci.

A hard living father of five, Duke White (Harvey Keitel) had a bad habit of gambling away every penny that came his way. Now Duke is dead, and he's got one last surprise for his three oldest sons: years ago, Duke signed up Cal, Jacob, and Nuts for a series of drug tests that drastically reduced their life expectancies. Upon learning that his time on Earth is quickly running out, Cal (Scott Caan) goes after Miranda (Tricia Helfer), the one girl he always regretted letting slip through his fingers. Former boxer Nuts (Jason Jones), meanwhile, decides to step back into the ring to prove that he can still deliver a crowd-pleasing punch. And then there's Jacob (Paulo Costanzo), the son who stopped taking risks after settling into a comfortable career. Now, with his youngest brother Todd (Siam Yu) by his side, Jacob is going to throw caution to the wind, and do all of the things he was too afraid to do before he knew that his days were numbered. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Working the night shift as a toll collector on a lonely stretch of highway in Buffalo, New York, Henry (KEANU REEVES) is a man seemingly without ambition, dreams or purpose; a man sleepwalking his way through life. He gets his wakeup call early one morning when he becomes an unwitting participant in an ill-conceived bank heist. Rather than give up the names of the real culprits, Henry takes the fall and goes to jail. There, he meets the irrepressible Max (JAMES CAAN), a con man who's grown far too comfortable with the familiarity and security of his 'idyllic' life behind bars, but one who also helps plant an idea in Henry's mind which will change his life forever: for a man to find his purpose, he must first have a dream. Upon his release one year later, Henry finds his purpose. Having done the time, he decides he may as well do the crime. Discovering a long forgotten bootlegger's tunnel which runs from the very same bank to a theater across the alleyway, he convinces the reluctant Max to file for his long overdue parole -- and then recruits his former cellmate to help stage a robbery. Their plan is simple: by infiltrating the theater and its current production of Chekhov's, The Cherry Orchard, the unlikely duo will buy just enough time to dig their way to the adjacent bank vault and drive off with their loot. Unfortunately that plan also includes Henry taking the lead role in the play, where he finds himself slowly falling for the production's mercurial leading lady, Julie (VERA FARMIGA). By turns wry, off-beat, and simply hilarious, HENRY'S CRIME is the heartwarming story of a man who finds his purpose in life. And then finds his destiny. -- (C) Moving Pictures

He's constantly picked on by resident jock DAVID VALENTINE (Blake Hood) and doesn't seem to have much luck with the ladies either. Many decide he's a freak including cool girls LINDSEY WEAVER (Kate Maher) and Courtney Taylor (Madison Eginton), and although Courtney doesn't mind him, Lindsey has other plans. In addition to troubles at school, home life for Jarod isn't much better. Living out of a trailer, Jarod has to put up with nagging from his mother, MARTHA LEARY (Debbon Ayer), and her budding romance with self-righteous immigration attorney RICK WATERS (Sam Ingraffia).

When Jarod rejects a summer trip to Alabama witnessing Rick shows his ugly side. Detective Fairchild, meanwhile, steps up his investigation as more bodies amass.

A recent college graduate keeps stumbling as she steps out into the real world in this independent comedy drama. Aura (Lena Dunham) has just graduated from a university in the Midwest, receiving a degree in film theory that even she seems to realize is essentially worthless. With no real prospects she returns home to her mother, Siri (Laurie Simmons), a successful photographer living in New York City. Aura's 17-year-old sister, Nadine (Grace Dunham), is about to graduate from high school and is choosing which college to attend in the fall; Aura is ostensibly back home to help Siri and Nadine during a hectic time, but they don't appear to particularly need or want her assistance. Aura befriends Jed (Alex Karpovsky), a minor celebrity thanks to his surreal YouTube videos, who insists he's in New York to take meetings for an upcoming TV project; he soon invites himself into Aura's bedroom as a semi-permanent guest, though he clearly has no interest in any sort of romantic or sexual relationship. With little else to do, Aura takes a job at a nearby restaurant and becomes smitten with Keith (David Call), one of the cooks; while he seems attracted to her, he also has a girlfriend and it isn't until they're both stoned one night that he makes his move in a rather unusual setting. Tiny Furniture was written and directed by Lena Dunham, who also plays Aura; Laurie Simmons and Grace Dunham are her mother and sister in real life as well as in the film, which was mostly shot in Simmons' actual apartment. The film was named Best Narrative Feature at the 2010 South by Southwest Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
