Oscar winner Forest Whitaker has been involved in several recent movies with multiple characters drawn together by tumultuous events ("Vantage Point," "Powder Blue"), and here's another.

He plays one of the people impacted by a shooting at a diner, an occurrence that leaves each of the individuals struggling to deal with his or her feelings in the aftermath; Kate Beckinsale, Guy Pearce, Dakota Fanning, Jeanne Tripplehorn ("Big Love") and Jackie Earle Haley ("Watchmen") also are in the ensemble cast; so is another Academy Award recipient, Jennifer Hudson ("Dreamgirls"). DVD extra: audio commentary by director Rowan Woods. *** (R: AS, P, V)
