This Weekend's Indies: 'Rush,' 'Enough Said,' and More

Opening in limited release today: The latest films from Ron Howard and Nicole Holofcener, plus Sam Rockwell in 'A Single Shot,' and Mark Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow as sex addicts. Quite the weekend!

Rush: Ron Howard presents possibly his least glitzy film in years, the true-life tale of Formula-One drivers Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) and James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth). The film is opening small, in limited markets, before hitting theaters everywhere next week. It's a pretty great, no-fuss sports movie, actually, featuring a pair of charismatic performances.

Enough Said: Nicole Holofcener (Lovely & Amazing; Please Give) is back and once again pairing with her muse, Catherine Keener. But it's Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the late James Gandolfini who are garnering the most attention for this romantic comedy.

A Single Shot: Sam Rockwell stars in what looks like a morality tale of accidental death and found money, similar in plot to A Simple Plan, at first blush. William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, and Jason Isaacs co-star.

Thanks For Sharing: Writer/director Stuart Blumberg (who co-wrote the script for The Kids Are All Right) brings us this tale of sex addicts Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Josh Gad, plus a featured performance by Alecia "Pink" Moore. This one has been bopping around festivals since last year in Toronto, and it's finally making it to the limited-run theater near you!

C.O.G.: Based on the writings of the wonderful and hilarious David Sedaris, this acronym of a movie ("Child of God") sees Jonathan Groff playing Sedaris as he goes off-grid to work on an apple farm, far away from his fancier sensibilities. Co-starring Denis O'Hare, Casey Wilson, and Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario.
