In this installment of Weekend Forecast, three new and (mostly) intriguing offerings vie at the box office: the Ryan Gosling showcase Drive, Sarah Jessica Parker's I Don't Know How She Does It, and Rod Lurie's remake of Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs. But will any of them be a match for the proven global box-office dazzle of Disney's The Lion King 3D?
Following a stellar year in which she starred in two Oscar-nominated films (Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are All Right), Australian actress Mia Wasikowska continues to impress in Jane Eyre, a moody and gorgeously haunting adaptation of the Charlotte Brontë classic helmed by director Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre). The 21-year-old commands the screen as the titular heroine, an unloved orphan-turned-headstrong young governess who falls for her employer (Michael Fassbender) as sordid secrets threaten to destroy her chance at happiness. Challenging material for most young actresses, but what did you expect from a girl who grew up watching Kieślowski?
