Jacki Weaver is generating Oscar buzz for this grim mob thriller, playing tough Australian crime matriarch Janine "Smurf" Cody. Ma Cody teaches her grandson the family business while navigating the war between her felonious sons and the gun-happy cops. Weaver sears in a film with no easy resolutions. (Sony Pictures, $15)
