'Kings'

Turkish filmmaker Deniz Gamze Ergüven – the woman behind the extraordinary coming-of-age movie Mustang – makes her English-language debut with the story of an African-American woman (Halle Berry), her Caucasian neighbor (Daniel Craig) and a City of Angels in flames as the Rodney King verdict sparks mass rioting. The press notes make this sound like a mixture of survivalist adventures, social-issue docudramas, dual character studies and offbeat star vehicles. Luckily for us, the movie's racial tensions are a thing of the past and something we no longer have to worry about, because everyone gets along great now and we've solved all of our country's problems.
