Crash by Paul Haggis( Visual )

"Crash" tells interlocking stories of whites, blacks, Latinos, Koreans, Iranians, cops and criminals, the rich and the poor, the powerful and powerless, crashing against one another other like pinballs in contemporary Los Angeles. They are all defined in one way or another by racism, all victims of it, all guilty of it. The way they all leap to conclusions based on race ensures that they will learn things--mostly about themselves--and pay a price for that knowledge. In the end, they are better people because of what has happened to them. Not happier, not calmer, not even wiser, but better

Set in the wilds of the Ozarks during the Great Depression, this award-winning story describes the adventures of Billy Coleman and his loyal dogs, Old Dan and Little Ann. Dan and Ann teach Billy about loyalty, courage and perseverance. Billy works hard to save up enough money to buy the pair of redbone hound pups and trains them to be the top hunting dogs in the valley. Billy almost decides to give up hunting, however, when he is present at a hunting expedition that ends in another boy's death. At Grandpa's insistence, Billy enters the dogs in a championship hunting competition. On the final night of the contest, the dogs abandon three coons in a tree to find Grandpa, who is seriously hurt. To Billy's surprise and delight, the winner of the contest concedes the trophy and prize money to Billy and his dedicated dogs. Back at home, their lives take a tragic turn when Billy and the dogs encounter a mountain lion in the woods. The cougar kills Dan, and Ann later dies of a broken heart. Billy buries the dogs next to each other. As Billy visits the gravesite, he discovers a mythical red fern between the graves, as in the Cherokee myth of the two children who could not bear to be separated after their deaths

These broken men, whose lives took a wrong turn years before, have been firmly rooted in the dilapidated house for years, encouraged only by Lawson's faltering ambitions to write a novel about Bobby Long's life. Having no intention of leaving, Pursy, Bobby Long and Lawson are all forced to live together. Yet as time passes, their tenuous, makeshift arrangement unearths a series of buried personal secrets that challenges their bonds, and reveals just how inextricably their lives are intertwined"--Internet movie database summary by Sujit R.
