The Haunted Mansion
Gabbie (Rosario Dawson), a single mother, and her young son Travis
recently purchased a New Orleans estate at auction only to discover it isn't
quite as empty as they expected. Gabbie hires a grieving widower, who works as a
ghost tour guide, a psychic, a priest, and a local historian to exorcise the

Full Circle (Max)
An investigation into a botched kidnapping uncovers long
held secrets connecting multiple characters and cultures
in present day New York City. Leave it to Soderbergh

major studios. Like a good book you just can't put down,
the complications the plotting offers are thrilling. The
complexity of the story is a delight and offered with a
wry humor. The cast (which couldn't have possibly known
where all this was headed) keeps you involved.
