The mood is one of both optimism and conflict as the young generation struggles to throw off the shackles of a troubled past. Against this backdrop of hope and change, a friendship begins to blossom between high school students Umi and Shun - but a buried secret from their past emerges to cast a shadow on the future and pull them apart.

DVD Review LIZ & DICK
Exploitive much? Lindsey Lohan brings her tabloid gravitas to a movie picking over the bones of the woman, whose life was the material of tabloid legend. Not very good as a biography, not very good as a movie, this film careens from cringeworthy to boring. For Lohan completists only (or maybe Grant Bowler fans).
Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway star in this stunningly realized interpretation of Victor Hugo's epic tale of broken dreams, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the endurance of the human spirit. This cinematic event can now be experienced over and over again.
In this new adaptation of the colossal classic, Ben Hur the mini-series delivers more action, passion and revenge than ever before. The timeless story follows two friends who become bitter enemies and the historic events of the time as told through the eyes of Judah Ben-Hur. Born a wealthy Jewish merchant's son, he is destined to live many lives: a powerful businessman, a dutiful slave, a fierce gladiator, a Roman nobleman, and finally...a conquering hero. This extraordinary adventure-filled saga is the historic epic for a new generation.
1930s Shanghai: the glamorous, tumultuous 'Paris of the East' whose salons, streets and bedrooms frame this Chinese adaptation of Pierre Choderlos de Laclos' 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses' into a lush, new vision.
