An Education, winner of the Audience Choice award and the Cinematography award at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival is adapted from British journalist Lynn Barber's "short, sharp" memoir (currently only available in the US @ amazon.com in the kindle edition).
Jenny, Oxford bound, is a bright young girl on the cusp of her 17th birthday who finds herself in a whirlwind romance with a much older David. Smooth, dashing and worldly, he offers Jenny the lifestyle she never imagined might so easily be hers and an education of another kind. Oxford goes out the window.
Critics like Rex Reed, Joe Morgenstern, Kenneth Turan and Peter Travers all agreed that Education is " one of the year's best" . With the script written by Nick Hornby, one could expect his trademark pitch-perfect dialogue, mordant wit and resonant humanity. (Limited release this weekend).
I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell is based on Tucker Max's shocking, ridiculous and hilarious real-life adventures - an impromptu bachelor party gone horribly awry thanks to a midget, a fat girl, a gaggle of strippers, public intoxication ordinances, and the consequence of Tucker’s unflinching narcissism and selfishness.
Where the Wild Things Are tells the story of Max, a rambunctious and sensitive boy who feels misunderstood at home and escapes to an island where he meets mysterious and strange creatures whose emotions are as wild and unpredictable as their actions.
The Wild Things, desperate for a leader, crowned Max king, and he soon finds that ruling his kingdom is not an easy thing. This animated feature film is adapted from Maurice Sendak's lovely tale that has captivated generations of young readers.
