Summary
  • All the pretty horses: Always wanting to live the cowboy lifestyle, young John Grady sets off for a Hacienda in Mexico. While there, John enters into a passionate romance with the spellbinding Alejandra, much to the displeasure of her powerful father. Doomed from the start, their illicit affair will culminate in murder and betrayal and young John will have to confront the ultimate test of inner strength and resilience
  • A love song for Bobby Long: Upon hearing of her mother's death, jaded teenage loner Purslane Hominy Will returns to New Orleans for the first time in years, ready to reclaim her childhood home. Expecting to find her late mother's house abandoned, Pursy is shocked to discover that it is inhabited by two of her mother's friends: Bobby Long, a former literature professor, and his young protege, Lawson Pines. These broken men, whose lives took a wrong turn years before, have been firmly rooted in the dipalidated house for years, encouraged only by Lawson's faltering ambitions to write a novel about Bobby Long's life. Having no intention of leaving, Pursy, Bobby Long and Lawson are all forced to live together. Yet as time passes, their tenuous, makeshift arrangement unearths a series of buried personal secrets that challenges their bonds, and reveals just how inextricably their lives are intertwined
  • The squid and the whale: In his third feature, director Noah Baumbach scores a triumph with an autobiographical coming-of-age story about a teenager whose writer-parents are divorcing. The father and mother duke it out in half-civilized, half-savage fashion, while their two sons adapt in different ways, shifting allegiances between parents..
  • Off the map: Bo is eleven years old and lives in a remote desert area of New Mexico with her mother, a free spirit who tends to the garden in the nude, and her father, who is losing a battle with his inner demons. One day they receive a visit from an IRS agent who is there to audit the family even though they make a very modest income...When Colleen learns that Daniel was to kill her boyfriend, and Daniel discovers the boyfriend is dead already, its a match made in Mafia heaven
