I "The Visitor" møter vi Walter Vale, en enkemann, som lever et rutinepreget liv som økonomiprofessor utenfor Connecticut. Når Walter svært motvillig går med på å steppe inn for en kollega på en økonomikonferanse i New York, oppdager han at hans leilighet har blitt ulovlig utleid til et par, Tarek og Zainab. Walter går etter hvert med på å la de to bli i leiligheten inntil de finner seg et nytt sted å bo. Det går ikke lenge før Walter og Tarek knytter et vennskapsbånd, noe den mer reserverte Zainab ikke liker særlig godt. "The Visitor" er en varm og menneskelig film om å finne tilbake til seg selv ved å finne sine medmennesker. Filmen fikk terningkast 5-6 i norske aviser

Ballets Russes by Dayna Goldfine( Visual )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fame, glamour, ego, politics, money, war, love, and dance: essential elements that made up more than fifty years in the lives of a group of revolutionary artists. This is the story of an extraordinary merger of Russian, American, European, and Latin American dancers who collaborated with composers, choreographers, and designers to transform the face of ballet for generations to come. The film maps the company's Diaghilev-era beginnings in turn-of-the-century Paris to its halcyon days in the 1930s and '40s--when the Ballets Russes toured America and the world, astonishing audiences with artistry never before seen--to its demise in the 1950s and '60s when rising costs, rocketing egos, outside competition, and internal mismanagement ultimately brought this revered company to its knees. Infused with juicy anecdotal interviews from many of the company's glamorous stars, this is a brief yet fascinating history of a groundbreaking company

Set in different decades in the same house, these stories of three lesbian couples each reflect a specific concern. In 1961, Abby and Edith, two retired schoolteachers, lead a quiet life. Abby has a stroke and dies, and her nephew and his wife come for the funeral and to sort and sell Abby's things, unaware that she and Edith were a lifelong couple. In 1972, four college-age lesbians share the house. They have problems with the campus feminism group, and Linda is drawn to Amy a very butch lesbian who wears men's clothing and drives a motorcycle. How can a feminist fall for a lesbian who acts like and dresses like a man? By 2000, long-term couple Fran and Kal want to have a child, and their quest leads from proposing sperm donation to a gay couple they know, to the horror of shopping for sperm on the Internet
