John strikes gold when Nelson is wrongly convicted of a crime and sent to the pen he used to call home. He gleefully gets sent back to become Nelson's cellmate and to ensure that his new buddy gets the "full treatment." Let the games begin.

Lesson #1: the joint's a scary place, so you better make friends fast. Right away, Nelson offends the wrong cons and is sold--by John--to Barry (McBride) for prison snuggling. But just as revenge starts tasting sweet, Nelson becomes Big Man in the Big House and turns the tables on John...changing the rules of his insane game.

It's time to shower with thugs, sip toilet wine and sharpen a shiv as the locked-up are set up in "Let's Go To Prison," an uncompromising, no-holds-barred comedy directed by Bob Odenkirk ("Mr. Show") and produced by Carsey-Werner Films and Strike Entertainment.

Plot Summary: "The History Boys" tells the story of an unruly class of bright, funny history students in pursuit of an undergraduate place at Oxford or Cambridge.

Their journey becomes as much about how education works, as it is about where education leads.

Stranger Than Fiction


Release Date: November 10, 2006
Studio: Columbia Pictures
Director: Marc Forster
Screenwriter: Zach Helm
Starring: Will Ferrell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Dustin Hoffman, Queen Latifah, Emma Thompson
Genre: Comedy
MPAA Rating: PG-13 (for some disturbing images, sexuality, brief language and nudity)
Official Website: StrangerThanFiction.com

Plot Summary: Columbia Pictures and Mandate Pictures' "Stranger Than Fiction" is an inventive comedy about a novelist (Emma Thompson) struggling to complete her latest, and potentially finest, book — she only has to find a way to kill off her main character, Harold Crick, and she'll be done. Little does she know that Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) is inexplicably alive and well in the real world and suddenly aware of her words. Fiction and reality collide when the bewildered and hilariously resistant Harold hears what she has in mind and realizes he must find a way to change her (and his) ending.

A Good Year (2006)


Genre: Comedy

Tagline:
Everything matures... eventually.

Plot:



A Good Year is as rich, rounded and satisfying as a well-aged bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Sir Ridley Scott’s adaptation of the novel by Peter Mayle – best-selling author of numerous books celebrating all things Provençale – brings out the sommelier in us all.

As the film opens, eleven-year-old Max Skinner (Freddie Highmore) is being educated in the gentle art of savouring life – and wine – while summering on the vineyard estate of his earthy aesthete uncle Henry (Albert Finney). Fast forward twenty-five years: Max (Russell Crowe) has become a self-satisfied financier, striding through the steel-and-glass world of London business, a trail of dodgy deals, one-night stands and tyrannized underlings in his wake. He has just made another killing when he learns Henry has passed away, leaving Max the sole beneficiary. Max smells a profit and arranges a quick trip to France to appraise the old property. But can he callously sell off this vestige of his idyllic childhood?

Max’s haste to close the deal falters as wild cards are thrown his way. There’s the crumbling, careworn property itself. There’s M. Duflot (Didier Bourdon), the surly estate winemaker, who stubbornly clings to his post; the town siren, Fanny (Marion Cotillard), who haughtily fends off advances from a smitten Max; and the sun-kissed California beauty (Abbie Cornish) who shows up on the doorstep, claiming to be a long-lost cousin with a claim to Henry’s estate. And what of Le Coin Perdu, the delightful vintage of mysterious origin?

As Max reflects on his happy memories of the place, he finds himself pulled in all directions – especially toward Fanny, who finds herself falling for Max but maintains, “Once you have done what you’ve come here to do, you will not return.” Past, present and future seem to coalesce magically to show Max the way forward. Scott makes full use of Crowe’s expertise at combining gruff and tender, and his trademark roving camera and expert compositions bring depth and life to this warm, romantic bask in the sunshine of the South of France.

Volver


Release Date: November 3, 2006 (NY, LA)
Studio: Sony Pictures Classics
Director: Pedro Almodóvar
Screenwriter: Pedro Almodóvar
Starring: Yohana Cobo, Penélope Cruz, Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas, Blanca Portillo
Genre: Comedy
MPAA Rating: R (for some sexual content and language)
Official Website: SonyClassics.com/Volver

Plot Summary: "Volver" is a meeting of "Mildred Pierce" and "Arsenic and Old Lace", combined with the surrealistic naturalism of my fourth film, "¿Qué he hecho yo para merecer esto!!" ("What have I done to Deserve This?"), that is, Madrid and its lively working-class neighbourhoods, where the immigrants from the various Spanish provinces share dreams, lives and fortune with a multitude of ethnic groups and other races. At the heart of this social framework, three generations of women survive wind, fire and even death, thanks to goodness, audacity and a limitless vitality.

They are Raimunda (Pénelope Cruz), who is married to an unemployed labourer and has a teenage daughter (Yohana Cobo); Sole (Lola Dueñas), her sister, who makes a living as a hairdresser; and the mother of both (Carmen Maura), who died in a fire along with her husband. This character appears first to her sister (Chus Lampreave) and then to Sole, although the people with whom she has some unresolved matters are Raimunda and her neighbour in the village, Agustina (Blanca Portillo).

"Volver" is not a surrealistic comedy although it may seem so at times. The living and the dead coexist without any discord, causing situations that are either hilarious or filled with a deep, genuine emotion. It's a film about the culture of death in my native La Mancha. The people there practice it with an admirable naturalness. The way in which the dead continue to be present in their lives, the richness and humanity of their rites mean that the dead never die.

"Volver" destroys all the clichés about "black" Spain and offers a Spain that is as real as it is the opposite. A Spain that is white, spontaneous, funny, intrepid, supportive and fair.
