When Maggie decides to go to business school in New York, they decide that he will move back in and take care of the day-to-day care for the kids.

Beeba Boys Mix bhangra beats, AK-47s, bespoke suits and cocaine and you have Beeba Boys. A ruthless Sikh mobster leads his soldiers into a turf war for control of the Vancouver drugs- and arms-trafficking rackets, in this based-on-fact gangland drama from Deepa Mehta (Water, Midnight's Children). Jeet Johar, a proud observant Sikh leads a team of stylish, charismatic but brutal and unforgiving young men.

Irrational Man

Wed. Nov. 11, 7:30 p.m.

Irrational Man The latest from director Woody Allen is an existential "perfect murder" thriller which manages to retain a beguiling lightness of touch. The story unfolds from the perspectives of two duelling narrators, nihilistic philosophy professor Abe and effervescent young college student Jill. A playful, darkly funny exploration of philosophy and morality, Irrational Man balances its weighty considerations of situational ethics with witty dialogue and an intoxicating jazz score. At once intelligent, romantic and suspenseful, this is Woody Allen at his best.  (14A, 94 minutes)
