This week The Little brings you two brilliant new films- one that shows the artistry of a cinematic genius from the past, and another that revels in the future of film narrative.

First is the highly-anticipated follow-up to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire. Once again we find ourselves embroiled in the dark and action-filled world of Lisbeth Salander. This time the audience gets a peak at her past and what has led to her current state. Suspenseful and engrossing, this second installment does what most in a trilogy have failed to do- it is even better than the first! You won't want to miss this one! Be advised, as with the first film, this film contains graphic violence which is central to its plot.

On the other side of the coin comes Wild Grass, from 87-year-old Alain Resnais, one of the godfathers of modern cinema with films like Hiroshima mon amour and Last Year at Marienbad. The film is a wonderful treat for the eyes as well as the heart. A touching and delightful romance with lots of twists and turns to keep you intrigued, the film is a true 'art film'. Resnais has not lost his sense of the avant- garde and Wild Grass is a very true example of what it means to be a real Auteur. A very 'Little' film to be sure!

"One of the best films of the year. Absolutely see it!"
-Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

Nic and Jules (three-time Academy-Award nominee Annette Bening and four-time Academy-Award nominee Julianne Moore) are married and share a cozy suburban Southern California home with their teenage children, Joni and Laser (Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson).Nic and Jules - or, when referred to jointly by Joni, "Moms" - gave birth to and raised their children, and built a family life for the four of them. As Joni prepares to leave for college, 15-year-old Laser presses her for a big favor. He wants Joni, now 18, to help him find their biological father; the two teenagers were conceived by donor insemination.

Against her better judgment, Joni honors her brother's request and manages to make contact with "bio-dad" Paul (Mark Ruffalo), an easygoing restaurateur. The kids find themselves drawn to the confirmed bachelor's footloose style - especially in contrast to Nic, a principled doctor who has long established their house rules. Jules, who has been looking to start a new career in landscaping, also strikes up a rapport with Paul. As Paul comes into the lives of the forthright four, an unexpected new chapter begins for them as family ties are defined, re-defined, and then re-re-defined.

"Relentless suspense! Holds you in a vise-like grip. Noomi Rapace is spectacular!"
-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

In the highly anticipated second installment of the Millennium Trilogy...

Lisbeth Salander is a wanted woman. A researcher and a Millennium journalist about to expose the truth about the sex trade in Sweden are brutally murdered, and Salander's prints are on the weapon. Her history of unpredictable and vengeful behavior makes her an official danger to society - but no-one can find her anywhere.

Meanwhile, Mikael Blomkvist, editor-in-chief of Millennium, will not believe what he hears on the news. Knowing Salander to be fierce when fearful, he is desperate to get to her before she is cornered and alone. As he fits the pieces of the puzzle together, he comes up against some hardened criminals, including the chainsaw-wielding 'blond giant' - a fearsomely huge thug who can feel no pain.

Digging deeper, Blomkvist also unearths some heart-wrenching facts about Salander's past life. Committed to psychiatric care aged 12, declared legally incompetent at 18, this is a messed-up young woman who is the product of an unjust and corrupt system. Yet Lisbeth is more avenging angel than helpless victim - descending on those that have hurt her with a righteous anger terrifying in its intensity and truly wonderful in its outcome.

"A sophisticated and visually playful masterpiece"
- Time Magazine

A Lifetime Achievement Award received at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival suggests that the best work from 60-year-veteran French director Alain Resnais lies in his illustrious past. Wild Grass (Les Herbes folles), a lively romantic comedy that premiered at the 2009 Cannes Festival before traveling to the Toronto International Film Festival and the New York Film Festival, says otherwise.
The story of an unexpected romance between a couple (Resnais regulars Sabine Az�ma and Andr� Dussollier) that meet over a lost wallet, Wild Grass is colorful, smart and brought to vivid life via the rich performances.

At first glance, Wild Grass may appear frivolous compared to 1959's Hiroshima mon amour or landmark documentary, Night and Fog, but Resnais has displayed great variety of storytelling throughout his expansive career and proven over and over again that not all of his films need be as experimental or as serious as Last Year at Marienbad.

Based on Christian Gailly's novel, "The Incident", from a faithful screenplay by Laurent Herbiet and Alex Reval, Wild Grass treats its fascinating, complex, adult characters with warmth, respect and also intelligence. Still, there's no denying the great humor throughout the film.

"Incredibly powerful! The year's most stirring film."
- New York Magazine

17 year-old Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence) sets out to track down her father, who put their house up for his bail bond and then disappeared. If she fails, Ree and her family will be turned out into the Ozark woods. Challenging her outlaw kin's code of silence and risking her life, Ree hacks through the lies, evasions and threats offered up by her relatives and begins to piece together the truth.

Based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell, WINTER'S BONE was filmed entirely on location in the Ozarks of Southwestern Missouri on the RED CAMERA.

An official selection of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival's Dramatic Competition, the film was the recipient of the Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic and the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.

"A sumptuous recreation of 1920s France and the unbridled affair between two of the century's most iconic figures."
- Richard Mowe, Boxoffice Magazine

The brief love affair between two 20th century icons is dramatized in this period drama from director Jan Kounen. Igor Stravinsky (Mads Mikkelsen) was one of Europe's most promising new composers when in 1913 he premiered his ballet Le Sacre du Printemps (aka The Rite of Spring); the piece proved to be wildly controversial, and the audience at the Paris debut was vocal in their disgust, ruining Stravinsky's reputation for years. One patron who did like the performance was Coco Chanel (Anna Mouglalis), who was already among Europe's most celebrated fashion designers. Seven years later, Chanel encounters Stravinsky at a party, and learns that the composer is penniless and without a place to live.

Chanel befriends him, and allows him to move into her summer home in the country along with his wife, Catherine (Elena Morozova), and their four children. Chanel is nursing a broken heart after the recent death of her boyfriend, and what began as an act of compassion for a fellow artist turns into an affair of the heart as Chanel and Stravinsky become lovers, much to the chagrin of the sickly Catherine.
