"Frailty" >> Told in flashback, actor Bill Paxton's directorial debut concerns a young boy who must decide whether his widowed father is a good guy or a bad guy after suddenly claiming he was visited by an angel overnight and given a mission to destroy demons disguised as normal people.

"Human Nature" This is the latest project from writer-filmmaker Charlie Kaufman ("Being John Malkovich"). An obsessive scientist (Tim Robbins) and a female naturalist (Patricia Arquette) discover a man (Rhys Ifans) born and raised in the wild. A power struggle ensues when the scientist tries to train the wild man in the ways of the world, and the naturalist fights to preserve his simian past (R).
