The Remains of the Day

(1993)
1218803.jpg Impeccably acted; visually stimulating. Every scene, every frame, contains verbal and/or visual perfection!

Ordinary People

(1980)
1211459.jpg Musical score, photography and perfectly edited dialogue create a "symphony" of emotions with absolute reality!

Bee Season

by Myla Goldberg
1188737.jpg Demonstrates pressures placed on children by obsessive parents to excel at spelling words, those certain never to come up again in a lifetime. Brittle tensions captured in clear, moving writing.

Rebecca

by Daphne Du Maurier
1044064.jpg Beautifully written old classic; moving story filled with happiness, sadness and surprises.

Whose Life Is It Anyway?

(1991)
