'White Man's Burden'

"White Man's Burden" works a "Twilight-Zone"-style switcheroo with John Travolta as a working-class member of the powerless minority white race and Harry Belafonte as the rich black industrialist who indirectly oppresses him.

'The Crossing Guard'

"The Crossing Guard" features Jack Nicholson as a father obsessed with the killer of his son in a hit-and-run crime, for which the man (David Morse) was caught and imprisoned. Anjelica Huston also appears in the film, written and directed by Sean Penn.
