Ways to Live Forever – Ben Chaplin, Robbie Kay

 

Like most inquisitive boys, 12-year old Sam wants to know about UFOs, horror movies, ghosts, and girls. Sam also has leukemia, and although the adults in his life don’t want him to dwell on it, Sam wants to know everything about his disease and death, a possibility he might face. Together with his best friend, Felix, he embarks on a "scientific investigation" with questions, observations, evidence, reflections, and lists of all the things he wants to do someday -- like breaking a world record, flying in a blimp, kissing a girl for the first time, and experiencing what it’s like to be a teenager. In this poignant yet ultimately uplifting tale, Sam and his family face the immensity of an uncertain future with love, humor, and a touch of the unexpected.

ON DVD

Critically acclaimed alcoholic actress Thea Barfoed (Paprika Steen) has gone through turmoil, resulting in a divorce and the loss of custody of her two boys. Eager to break with the past, regain control over her life and get her children back, she uses charm and manipulation to persuade her ex husband, Christian, that she is able to take back the mantle of motherhood; but ironically, she has not completely convinced herself. On stage, Thea plays "Martha", the aggressive and wounded wife in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolfe"? Off stage, the actress is mixed up in a drama that has many of the same tragic, toxic ingredients. As Thea contends with the rigorous demands of stage life and a past that haunts her, she must face her inner demons. But what she and her family both know is that Thea is Thea, a prima donna better suited to acting her heart out than living an ordinary life. Danish with English subtitles.

Red Roses and Petrol – Malcolm McDowell

未命名_meitu_2

Based on the Irish play by acclaimed writer Joseph O'Connor and directed by Tamar Simon Hoffs, Red Roses and Petrol is an award-winning, darkly comedic drama. In it, Malcolm McDowell stars as Enda Doyle, an Irish poet, University librarian, and rascal whose sudden death triggers the dysfunction in his family and sparks a disturbing mystery. Gathering for the wake are his wife Moya (Olivia Tracey), stuck-at-home 20-something daughter Medbh (Heather Juergensen), outspoken older sister Catherine (Susan Lynch) from New York with her awkward Yankee boyfriend Tom (Greg Ellis), and their volatile brother Johnny (Max Beesley). The accidental discovery of their father's video diaries prompts the family to realize that they may not have known him - or his shocking secrets ‹ at all. However, through a haze of cigarettes, sarcasm, uneaten food, and more than a splash of Irish whiskey, the family overcomes their differences.

In addition to the accomplished cast, the film also features a memorable soundtrack, including new and classic recordings from the popular Irish American band, Flogging Molly, and Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles.

McDowell's body of work encompasses more than 40 years of cinematic achievements, including such classic films as A Clockwork Orange, O Lucky Man!, If...., Time After Time, Rob Zombie's Halloween, and television dramas like HEROES, ENTOURAGE, and FRANKLIN & BASH.
