...and the Band played On
(1993 Roger Spottiswoode)

From Randy Shilts' bestseller comes a powerful, enlightening and moving chronicle of our times.

In the summer of 1981, few knew of the deadly disease we now call AIDS. "...and The Band Played On" follows the struggle of a handful of strong-willed men and women who took on the fight to save lives.

Matthew Modine stars as Dr. Don Francis, a researcher at the Centers for Disease Control who seeks to uncover the cause of a number of mysterious deaths. With little funding for a subject few will even discuss, not only must he fight the disease, but a disinterested public, the government, the media and even the communities where the mysterious virus strikes hardest. But as the death toll mounts, public interest is stirred and Francis' research becomes a desperate race against time.

About a Boy
(2002 Chris & Paul Weitz)

svensk titel: Om en Pojke

Hugh Grant stars as Will Freeman, a proudly self-absorbed 38-year-old Londoner. Living lavishly off the royalties from a hit Christmas song penned by his father, Will excels at nothing except doing nothing, which, in his case, includes shopping for CDs and having his hair "professionally disheveled."

When Will makes a guilt-free exit from a brief fling with a single mom, he decides to crash a meeting of S.P.A.T. (Single Parents, Alone Together) in pursuit of more single mothers. This scheme leads to meeting Suzie (Victoria Smurfit) and Marcus (Nicholas Hoult), the socially awkward 12-year-old son of her flaky best friend, Fiona (Toni Collette). A series of odd situations leads to Will and Marcus becoming unlikely friends, and gradually both of their lives start to change for the better.

However, when Will falls for the lovely Rachel (Rachel Weisz) and attempts to pass Marcus off as his son, things go awry. In order to win the heart of Rachel and make amends with Marcus, Will must finally grow up--and completely embarrass himself in front of hundreds of people.

Amores Perros
(2000 Alejandro González Iñárritu)

Animal Crackers

svensk titel: Muntra Musikanter

Feature is a classic of screen history and as uproariously funny today as it was seventy years ago. This film introduced Groucho's African lecture ("One morning I shot an elephant in my pyjamas. How he got into my pyjamas, I don't know...") and the card game which Harpo and Chico play with the wealthy society woman Mrs. Rittenhouse (Margaret Dumont).

Another Woman
(1988 Woody Allen)

svensk titel: En Annan Kvinna

Middle-aged philosophy professor Marion Post (Gena Rowlands) would appear to have every advantage. After all, she has a rock-solid professional reputation, an equally secure marriage and enough spare cash to be able to rent a separate flat in which to write her latest book without interruption. But she is interrupted, thanks to an accident of ventilation, by the therapy sessions going on in the psychiatrist's office next door. Voyeuristically fascinated, Marion is particularly struck by the way that the unhappy experiences of his patient Hope (Mia Farrow) mirror her own, and realises that her life is nowhere near as materially and emotionally secure as she's been pretending.
And when she decides to rely less on her beloved logic and reason and open herself up to dreams, imagination and passion, the scene is set for a life-changing transformation.
