Coyoty sees "District 9".

This is an excellent movie, and highly emotional.  It starts off like "The Office" set in a security agency contracted to relocate refugee aliens in Johannesburg, South Africa from their ghetto, called District 9, to an outside settlement, District 10, away from all the humans who don't like them.  An awkward middle manager in the company is assigned to run the operation, but it becomes clear that he's just a figurehead and the agency has a different agenda.  The manager is out of his league and very bigoted toward the aliens, and his satirical bumbling takes a tragic turn that forces him to rethink his role in the agency and his attitudes toward the aliens.  At the end, you may wish you brought tissues with you.
