So, I saw the movie Whale Rider this weekend, and I have to say it's one of the best movies I've seen in a long time.  Reading a synopsis of the film you wouldn't think much of it, but it really grabs you.  The girl who plays the lead role does an amazing job, and the rest of the cast is superb as well.  If you get a chance to see it while it's in theaters, do -- otherwise, rent it when it comes out on video. -Chris
