We're trying to make room on our UPC hard disk (I'm sure there is a proper name for it, but I don't know what it is - it's the box from the cable company on which we can record movies), so we're watching a good few movies these days.

11:14 was a good surprise - never heard of it before, but it had an interesting story line - all circling around the same few roads going across a small town in the middle of nowhere in America, before, after and at 11:14 PM. A few people's lives are criss-crossing, with tragic consequences and ironic twists. Some scenes were quite bloody, actually completely gross, but in a sort-of-funny way (I still couldn't look at them directly - I had to watch those bits in the reflection in the window - somehow it makes it more bearable).

A couple of big names - Patrick Swayze, Hillary Swank, Barbara Hershey. And if the guy driving the car at the start of the movie looks familiar, it's because he is Henry Thomas, who played Elliott, the little boy who befriends E.T. in E.T!!  These are the wonderful pieces of information you'll find on Wikipedia! Just do a search for Henry Thomas in Google images, and you'll see how he hasn't changed all that much!
