The 27th Annual Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival will present the “Star on The Horizon Award” to 12-year-old actress and Ft. Lauderdale native Bailee Madison, who has had featured roles in Bridge to Terabithia, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark and will be seen in Parental Guidance to open this Christmas.

Madison will receive her award at the Oct. 21, 3 p.m. screening of Cowgirls N’ Angels at Sunrise Civic Center Theater (info: www.fliff.com). Madison stars as a rebellious girl who dreams of finding her father. Along the way, she makes friends with trick horse riders on the rodeo circuit.

This Sunday, Sept. 23, Madison will be selling lemonade to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness at the In Synch Cut-A-Thon in Imperial Point Shopping Plaza, 5975 N. Federal Hwy., in Ft. Lauderdale from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Between making movies and school work, Bailee has been devoting her free time to Alex’s Lemonade Stand, an organization that encourages children nationwide to raise money to find a cure for childhood cancer through running their own lemonade stands. For more details about this street party called Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye, call In Synch Hair & Body Works at 954-491-4961.

Despite intense box office competition, Arbitrage held its own in limited release at the FAU Living Room Theater. It is a timely story that explains the business concept of “arbitrage” or practice of taking advantage of a price difference between two or more markets.

For many decades, Robert Miller (Richard Gere) has been a master of arbitrage on Wall Street, until his cash flow constricts. While presenting an impeccable façade to the public, Miller’s home life has become a den of iniquity.

Much praise has been given to Richard Gere’s performance, though it is a role he was born to play, given his previous three decades of work on the big screen.

As Miller’s personal fury, British actor Tim Roth steals the show as a New York cop who would love to bust a Manhattan Master of the Universe.
