Beautiful beaches with beautiful people. The peaceful
resort town of Amity, Massachusetts has always depended upon its
thriving summer tourist trade to get it through the lean winter months
ahead. But when a swimmer is killed by a great white shark, Sheriff
Brody (Roy Scheider) faces great opposition when he proposes to close
the beaches, right before the booming Fourth of July holiday weekend.
There may not be many choices left, if the shark doesn’t go away...
Tom Cruise is Jerry Maguire. He's
popular, he's a top notch sports agent, and he's at the top of his game.
He's unstoppable, but driven by his conscience he writes a 'mission
statement' of a new belief that is quality not quantity, the people not
the money, that really counts. Fired as soon as his boss reads the
statement Jerry is soon stripped of his friends, fiancée and
self-respect, and is forced to start from scratch.
The only two people who stand by him are his sole remaining client, Rod
Tidwell, a second-rate football player (Cuba Gooding Jnr) and Dorothy
Boyd (Renee Zellweger), a single mother inspired by his statement and
zest for life. Only through his shared journey to success with Rod and
his relationship with Dorothy and her son does he begin to understand
the values that really matter. Jerry Maguire was nominated for 5 Academy
Awards including Best Picture, with Cuba Gooding Jnr winning Best
Supporting Actor award. Tom Cruise also earned a Golden Globe for his
acclaimed performance as Jerry.
||Joan of Arc
The year is 1429. France is in polical and religious
turmoil as members of the royal family battle for rule. But one peasant
girl from a remote village gave her country the miracle it was looking
for. Milla Jovovich is Joan of Arc, a young woman who would inspire and
lead her countrymen until her execution at the age of nineteen. Raised
in a religious family, Joan witnessed her sister's rape and death at the
hands of an invading army. Years later, as the same war raged on, Joan
stood before her king with a message she claimed came from God: give her
an army, and in God's name she would reclaim his diminished kingdom.
But was the message real, or the delusion of a girl whose life had been
shattered? This startling epic drama by Luc Besson explores the life of
Joan of Arc, her amazing victories, relationship with God, and tragic
death. Co-starring John Malkovich and Academy Award winners Dustin
Hoffman and Faye Dunaway, The Messenger is a modern take on a medieval
saint who enthralls people even today.
