It’s Oscar season again. Can you feel it? Of course you can. The air is getting colder, it is about to snow here in Ohio (not really, but close enough) and studios are already starting to send press sweet DVD screeners. One particular screener that I am interested in receiving from the FedEx guy is Rendition, starring Reese Witherspoon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Meryl Streep, Peter Sarsgaard and Alan Arkin. The film centers around a woman (Witherspoon) whose husband is suspected of terrorism and is picked up by the government and “questioned” for information. She is forced to attempt to track down her husband while a CIA analyst (Gyllenhaal) is forced to use some unorthodox techniques to illicit information.

Rendition is premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend and will roll out to theaters in the United States on October 19.
