Nothing extraordinary ever happens to Carol Peters, so when she starts getting snarky backtalk from her TV, phone and microwave, she thinks she’s being punked. Or losing her mind. In fact, the world’s first superintelligence has selected her for observation, taking over her life...with a bigger, more ominous plan to take over everything. Now Carol is humanity’s last chance before this artificial intelligence-with- an-attitude decides to pull the plug.

REVIEWS The Campaign - More bipolar than bipartisan

Starring Reese Witherspoon, Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal, Corey Stoll, Maria Howell and Sarah Baker. Directed by Philippe Falardeau.

An incredible story inspired by true events that follows the journey of four orphans who survive a vicious attack on their Sudanese village, only to face a harrowing trek to a U.N. refugee camp in Kenya. Close on a decade later, they win a "human" lottery to relocate to America where they face the unique and bittersweet challenges of adjusting to the foreign world.

In the U.S., Mamere and his sister Abital, now in their twenties, are thrilled to start their new lives. But immigration wrenches the small family apart demanding that Abital be placed with a family in Boston, sending Mamere and his friends Jeremiah and Paul to fend for themselves in Kansas City. There the boys meet Carrie (Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon), a sassy and brash employment agent who has reluctantly signed on to help them find jobs.

In spite of the vast and often amusing cultural differences, the three resourceful young men thrive. The adjustment to their new life is not always easy, but Carrie helps them navigate the strange landscape of America. As a fiercely independent single woman, Carrie finds herself drawn deeply into their lives and, slowly transformed by the young men’s strength, kindness and optimism, begins to understand the real gift of family.
