House of Sand and Fog

Essentially a fraught and poignant dispute over a family house in California, from which recovering alcoholic Kathy is wrongfully evicted for non-payment of a property tax. Sir Ben Kingsley - nominated for an Oscar - is an Iranian exile whose acquisition of the house cheaply at auction leads to tragedy.
