Mr. Bennet is an English gentleman living in Hartfordshire with his overbearing wife and 5 daughters. There is the beautiful Jane, the clever Elizabeth, the bookish Mary, the immature Kitty and the wild Lydia. Unfortunately, if Mr. Bennet dies their house will be inherited by a distant cousin whom they have never met. The family's future, happiness, and security is dependent on the daughters making good marriages. Life is uneventful until the arrival in the neighbourhood of the rich gentleman Mr. Bingley, who rents a large house so he can spend the summer in the country. Mr Bingley brings with him his sister and the dashing, rich, but proud Mr. Darcy. Love soon buds for one of the Bennet sisters, while another sister may have jumped to a hasty prejudgment. For the Bennet sisters many trials and tribulations stand between them and their happiness

In 1935, thirteen-year-old fledgling writer Briony Tallis and her family live a life of wealth and privilege in their enormous mansion. On the warmest day of the year, the country estate takes on an unsettling hothouse atmosphere, stoking Briony's vivid imagination. Robbie Turner, the educated son of the family's housekeeper, carries a torch for Briony's headstrong older sister Cecilia. He hopes that Cecilia has comparable feelings. All it will take is one spark for this relationship to combust. When it does, Briony - who has a crush on Robbie, is compelled to interfere. She goes so far as to accuse Robbie of a crime he did not commit. Cecilia and Robbie declare their love for each other, but, ultimately, he is arrested. Briony bears false witness and the course of three lives is changed forever. As Briony grow older, she continues to seek forgiveness for her childhood misdeed. Through a terrible and courageous act of imagination, she finds the path to her uncertain atonement, and to an understanding of the power of enduring love

In 2005, the only thing hurting Los Angeles Times columnist and recent bike accident victim Steve Lopez more than his banged-up face, was his pressing need for story ideas. He soon discovers Nathaniel Ayers, a skid row schizophrenic street musician, who possesses extraordinary talent - even though he only has half-broken instruments to play. Inspired by Nathaniel's story, Lopez writes an acclaimed series of articles about him and attempts to do more to help both him, and the rest of the underclass of L.A. have a better life. Lopez's good intentions run headlong into Nathaniel's personal demons and the larger issues of social injustice facing the homeless.

Orgoglio e pregiudizio by Simon Langton( Visual )

Nell'Inghilterra rurale di fine '700 un giovane aristocratico a cui non difettano le ricchezze, Charles Bingley, affitta la tenuta vicina a quella dei Bennet, a cui non difettano invece le figlie da maritare. Una sera, durante una festa danzante, Bingley fa il suo ingresso nella sala scatenando lo scompiglio fra le fanciulle del paese che desiderano un giro di danza e un (buon) partito. Accompagnato dall'altezzosa sorella e dal bello quanto presuntuoso Signor Darcy, Bingley si innamora perdutamente della primogenita dei Bennet, la timida e placida Jane. Amore a prima vista sarebbe anche per Darcy e la secondogenita Bennet, Lizzie, se non fosse per quella loro indole indomita e poco incline al confronto. Troppo orgogliosa lei, troppo prevenuto lui. Dopo equivoci e incomprensioni il disprezzo diventerà sospiro e i due testardi amanti finiranno per cedere l'uno all'altra dentro un'alba che incendia la brughiera. (Mymovies)

Mai 1940: Das anfängliche Kriegsglück der Nazis stürzt die britische Regierung in eine existenzielle Krise, Premierminister Chamberlain tritt zurück. Nur dem reichlich unpopulären Winston Churchill traut man zu, die scheinbar ausweglose Lage in den Griff zu bekommen. Er übernimmt das Amt, sieht sich aber bald von Öffentlichkeit und Regierungsmitgliedern bedrängt, mit den scheinbar unaufhaltsamen Nazis über einen Friedensvertrag zu verhandeln. Doch durch seine ausserordentliche Weitsicht und Integrität gelingt es Churchill dennoch, an seiner Überzeugung festzuhalten und für die Freiheit seiner Nation zu kämpfen. (Quelle:
