In town for the holidays? Check out "Larry Crowne" at the Avalon directed
by Tom Hanks and starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. Until he was
downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne was a superstar team leader at the
big-box company where he's worked since his time in the Navy. Underwater on
his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his free days, Larry heads to
his local college to start over. There he becomes part of a colorful
community of outcasts trying to find a better future for themselves. Larry
develops an unexpected crush on his teacher who has lost as much passion for
teaching as she has for her husband. The simple guy who has every reason to
think his life has stalled will come to learn an unexpected lesson: when you
think everything worth having has passed you by, you just might discover
your reason to live.
Back by popular demand is the Dutch film, "Bride Flight". Inspired by
real-life events, three strangers Ada, Esther and Marjorie leave post-war
Holland to look forward to a better life in New Zealand with their fiancés
who are already settled in Christchurch. On the immigration flight - the
"Bride Flight" - the three women form a bond of friendship along with
another passenger, Frank, an attractive Dutchman who plans to set up a
winery. Upon their arrival, they part ways to start their new lives yet
their paths continue to cross with chance meetings resulting in adultery,
betrayal and near tragedy to a reunion fifty years later.

girls doing with them?
