feelings of resentment after she pays a visit to a former flame.
Stephen Adly Guirgis's The Motherf**ker with the Hat follows a
former inmate (nominee Bobby Cannavalle) seeking to rebuild his life with
the help of a less-than-honest 12-step sponsor (Chris Rock).
Jez Butterworth's Jerusalem takes us the outskirts of London
where "Rooster" Byron (nominee Mark Rylance) leads a brigade of kids who
seek his bizarre wisdom and drugs.
