Jodie Foster and Forest Whittaker are the leads in this thriller about burglars and a mother & child. Unlike your ordinary movie in the genre, where luck is written into the script, this story is about brain vs. brain. The characters are trapped in a house and must play each other like a game of chess in order to survive until morning. "Panic Room" is far above your average suspense-thriller.
[2009: The character of Foster's daughter was played by Kristen Stewart, who is a current "It" girl, appearing in "Twilight" last year. Stewart has quite the impressive resume, "Panic Room" is one of several really good movies she's been in.]
