There's a vitally important word in the epic tale of Beowulf and, according to Maria Dahvana Headley, it's been translated incorrectly for a very long time. The word is aglæca/æglæca — no one's entirely sure how to pronounce it – and, as Headley explains, that same word is used to describe Beowulf and his three antagonists: Grendel, Grendel's mother, and the dragon.

The movie Outside In tells the story of Carol, a middle-aged high school teacher trapped in her mundane job and marriage in Washington state. When Carol's former student, Chris (Jay Duplass), returns to their small town after serving 20 years in prison, Carol is thrilled to welcome him home. But Chris has no idea how to transition back into society, and Carol doesn't know how to help him.
