The Plot:

For Jewish teenager Anne Frank (Ellie Kendrick), her diary is her one true friend and confidant. In it, she records the thoughts of a typical teen — only set against a backdrop of encroaching evil in Amsterdam during World War II. Stowed away behind a bookcase in a secret annex with her family and others to flee the Nazis, Anne experiences her time in hiding as an adventure. And, amidst closed quarters and random bomb blasts, Anne faces friction with family, a desire for independence and the first stirrings of young love. As Anne's identity solidifies, so does her resolve to be a writer — her diary a tangible and remarkable record of a young woman's first-hand observations of the Holocaust, and the innate goodness she still sees in people. Drawing on Anne Frank's own words in the most accurate-ever adaptation of the revered memoir, Masterpiece presents The Diary of Anne Frank on Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2010.

Sharpe's Peril

Sharpe's Peirl -
Airing on April 4th on PBS Masterpiece Classic. Hosted by Laura Linney. Following story of Sharpe's Challenge. One episode of 120 min. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/sharpesperil/index.html = for more infor
and it will be online to watch from April 5th to May 4th.
(Check your local listings for exact day and time.)

Colonel Richard Sharpe (Sean Bean, The Lord of the Rings) may have a nose for mischief, but his only interest now is returning to England. But before he goes, he is prevailed on for one last, seemingly straightforward duty — safe transport of some property across central India. The "property" in question turns out to be Marie-Angelique (Beatrice Rosen, 2012), who Sharpe quickly pegs as petulant, spoiled and selfish. The journey, through more than 600 miles of hostile territory, will prove to be riddled with surprises and rebellion and bring Sharpe, his comrade-in-arms Patrick Harper (Daragh O'Malley) and their ragtag troops into a dark conspiracy and one climactic, perilous battle. Sharpe's Peril is based on the characters created by novelist Bernard Cornwell. (One episode; 120 minutes; TV-PG)

The Last Station (2009)

Sadly i really wanted to see this movie but it is rated R. But for me it looks really interesting and it looks like a really great story. Running time is: 112 min. and like i said it is rated R. Byt the way its pretty cool that James McAvoy and Anne-Marie Duff are in this movie together

The Plot:

A historical drama that illustrates Russian author Leo Tolstoy's struggle to balance fame and wealth with his commitment to a life devoid of material things

(The cast is pretty amazing!)

Bright Star (2009)

This movie really interests me and i really want to see it. It did make it to the academy awards and was nominated but it didn't win. But still being nominated is really a big accomplishment.
Here is the link for the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTetIodauIM
Rating: PG
Length: 119
And the plot:

London 1818: a secret love affair begins between 23 year-old English poet, John Keats (Ben Whishaw), and the girl next door, Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish), an out-spoken student of high fashion. This unlikely pair begin at odds, he thinking her a stylish minx, while she was unimpressed not only by his poetry but also by literature in general

Best Costume

The Young Victoria to home best costume again for the Academy Awards. I think it did well in that area because they really deserved it. For a smaller budget film it is so amazing that they made it the the awards. It amazed me like how Precious made it from Sun dance to theaters.
