We're one month into Hollywood's summer blockbuster season and brave distributors continue to lob independent firecrackers into theatres.
Some of the titles I picked last month are now in the process of expanding throughout the U.S., but what's on the horizon for June? I've picked a new handful of the most intriguing indies that will be receiving theatrical releases this month, films that I haven't seen yet. You're invited to share your picks in the comments section. If you live outside the U.S., what are the local titles you're most anticipating?

Advance word has been extremely positive.
