A woman accused of driving a minivan into the Atlantic Ocean with her three children in Florida was arrested Friday on three counts of attempted first-degree murder, Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson said.
Investigators say they think Ebony Wilkerson was trying to kill her children -- ages 3, 9 and 10 -- when she drove into the surf Tuesday in Daytona Beach, Johnson said.
Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners is one of those high profile studio films with magazine cover actors that delivers the goods both commercially and artistically, in other words, it is a cinematic gem, a dark colored gem.
The plot is more or less a common one; two loving white collar families' sweet little girls (that's right, two) go missing, the detective in charge of the case gets emotionally involved, and the parents of the girls grief desperate cries as the plot catches glances of possible clues that keep you wondering if the girls are already dead. However Villeneuve is not about to let his first Hollywood film be a mere average thriller.

Relief may be on the way for a weather-weary United States with the predicted warming of the central Pacific Ocean brewing this year that will likely change weather worldwide. But it won't be for the better everywhere.
The warming, called an El Nino, is expected to lead to fewer Atlantic hurricanes and more rain next winter for drought-stricken California and southern states, and even a milder winter for the nation's frigid northern tier next year, meteorologists say.
