We like

The Numbers Station

with John Cusack as a black ops agent who's on the rebound from making a serious mistake in the field. He's been assigned to guard a code operator (Malin Akerman) at a secret CIA outpost. Things get complicated when the outpost comes under attack by an unknown force. Cusack, in his usual less-is-more style, nicely underplays his role as agent. He's enjoyable on screen and offers viewers a refreshingly intelligent take on being the hero of the world. Yes, the future of humanity is at stake, but that's no reason to get crazy, is it?

Here's a sneak peak at one of our choices for next week,

The Politician's Wife

with Juliet Stevenson being released by Acorn Media.

Coming on June 18 is


, a Sundance Channel original story follows a man's readjustment to society after having been unjustly imprisoned.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
