The film, featuring Jackie Cooper and musicians like Benny Goodman and Harry James in their prime, has been digitally remastered. The romance between a young trumpeter and a New Orleans-born piano player serves as the narrative plot line. But the core of the film is its celebratory history of 'syncopated' music - jazz - tracing it from the turn-of-the-century sounds of ragtime, through Dixieland, the blues, Chicago jazz and the swing era.
The Hemingway name echoes through modern American life - but not just as a symbol of literary greatness. The name also carries with it stories of mental illness and suicide afflicting numerous Hemingway family members over the generations. Now, actress Mariel Hemingway herself tells her family's troubled tale in an incisive, revealing and ultimately uplifting new film.
An elite French military unit takes on the Taliban in a desperate hostage rescue mission; it stars Diane Kruger as kidnapped journalist Elsa Casanova and Academy Award Nominee Djimon Hounsou as the lead commando, Kovax. After the team manages to free Elsa, their radio is destroyed in a firefight. Now, deep behind Afghan enemy lines, the group faces the ultimate challenges of survival, honor and sacrifice as they try to outrun their pursuers through the treacherous mountains of the Hindu Kush.
The half-hour program from creators Mark A. Altman and Steve Kriozere features stories inspired by such noir classics as Double Indemnity and Pulp Fiction and classic thriller TV series like The Twilight Zone. In each stand-alone episode, women find extraordinary ways of coping with their problems, channeling their survival instincts and bringing out their inner guile.
She may be a tough-as-nails, street-smart private investigator, but when Molly (Miley Cyrus) is drafted by the FBI to go undercover in a college sorority, she quickly discovers she's way out of her element amongst a sisterhood of snooty, high maintenance, materialistic college girls. But Molly accepts the top-secret mission in order to protect the daughter of a key witness in a case against the mob.
A poignant and hilarious film that reverses the coming of age formula, creating a beautifully honest portrayal of life with its rough edges, awkward moments and non-endings. Starring Golden Globe winner David Duchovny, Oscar-nominated actress Vera Farmiga, Emmy winner Ty Burrell, Golden Globe winner Keri Russell.

DVD Review "FACE TO FACE"
While not the first of Ingmar Bergman' films to come to mind when discussing his directorial career, this Oscar-nominated classic is arguably as important and powerful as those considered his absolute best.
Captivating audiences with its heart-palpitation-inducing vistas at 29,000 feet (The Washington Post), Director Anthony Geffen retraces Mallory's deadly climb while illustrating his powerful love story through letters interwoven with never-before-seen photos and film archives. Blended with personal accounts from Mallory's family, fascinating interviews and vivid re-enactments, the film creates a Breathtaking docudrama (Bloomberg) that everyone should see (Parade Magazine).
This September, two of the greatest, as well as the most unorthodox, films about World War II will come to the Criterion Collection, in both Blu-ray and DVD editions. Terrence Malick's star-studded (Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Woody Harrelson), multiple-Oscar-nominated James Jones adaptation The Thin Red Line is a staggering accomplishment, a profoundly moving, existential trip to war's heart of darkness, set during the battle for Guadalcanal. And Nagisa Oshima's extraordinarily bold Japanese POW camp drama Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, starring David Bowie as a mysterious prisoner targeted by an obsessive camp commander, is one of the controversial director's most acclaimed and beloved films. Plus, two jazzy sixties hits—Godard's Breathless, with Jean-Paul Belmondo, celebrating its fiftieth anniversary, and Stanley Donen's Charade, starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant—come out in new Criterion Blu-ray editions.
