An adaptation of the Richard Price novel, Freedomland features Julianne Moore as Brenda, a frazzled mother who loses her son in a carjacking and ultimately triggers a racial crisis in a New Jersey housing project. ”It’s interesting in light of what happened with [Hurricane] Katrina this year,” says the actress, ”because this movie is really about poverty and loss.” Samuel L. Jackson costars as the detective unraveling Brenda’s story. (Feb. 17)
