A group of six friends, in Sacramento, gather to distract themselves from loss - a newly dumped Sylvia, Prudie's repressed disappointment, or Jocelyn, who has a life of unrealized dreams. All are devoted Jane Austen fans, except the lone man, Grigg, who has an ulterior motive for joining the chick-lit gang. There's plenty of pride (Prudie), prejudice (Jocelyn), sense (Sylvia), and sensibility (Sylvia's daughter Allegra). Throw in a fair amount of persuasion. Relationships and alliances unfold over the months

Der seltsame Fall des Benjamin Button( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im frühen 20. Jahrhundert wird Benjamin Button geboren - als alter Greis. Im Verlauf seines Lebens altert er nicht, sondern wird immer jünger. Als er sich in Daisy verliebt, wird ihr Verhältnis zueinander durch Benjamins Besonderheit auf die Probe gestellt, da sie immer älter, er aber immer jünger wird. - Epische Lebensgeschichte eines Mannes, dessen Alterungsprozess rückwärts abläuft. Die sich aus dieser Situation zwangsläufig ergebenden Konflikte und Situationen sind, wie die eines normalen Lebens auch, urkomisch bis tieftraurig, und regen den Zuschauer gerade wegen ihrer grundsätzlichen Normalität zum Nachdenken an. Die mehr als üppige Verfilmung einer Kurzgeschichte ist solide, bewegend und aufmunternd zugleich, ein echter Fincher-Film eben. (www.moviemaze.de, 18.5.10)
