The comedy 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' (2011), follows the experiences of a group of elderly Brits, including Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson and Maggie Smith, who arrive to take up residence in a newly-opened retirement home in Bangalore, India.

However, it soon begins to reveal some unexpected charms of its own. In 'We Bought a Zoo' (2011), Matt Damon stars as newly widowed Benjamin, who is finding life difficult trying to raise his two young children. Urged on by his father, Duncan (Thomas Haden Church), to start over, he decides to purchase a rundown zoo in the countryside in the hope that it will bring his family together again. Having to care for 47 species, and with his friends thinking he's mad, Benjamin sets out to restore the zoo to its former glory with the help of a small but loyal staff led by Kelly Foster (Scarlett Johansson). Finally, in 'The Descendants' (2011), trustee for a large estate, Matt King (George Clooney) has had a fairly easy life to date. Living in the tropical island of Hawaii, with his financial future secure, King has grown complacent to an extent that is only brought home to him when a boating accident sends his wife, Elizabeth (Patricia Hastie), into a coma. Left in sole charge of the daughters he has largely neglected, Scottie (Amara Miller) and Alex (Shailene Woodley), Matt is called to face his responsibilities as an adult. However, when he discovers that Elizabeth had been having an affair in the months leading up to the accident, a test of his newfound emotional maturity is presented.

Published in celebration of Pearl Jam's twentieth anniversary and in conjunction with Cameron Crowe's definitive film, Pearl Jam Twenty is the unprecedented, and lavishly illustrated portrait of one of the world's most influential and successful bands. Published in celebration of Pearl Jam's twentieth anniversary and in conjunction with Cameron Crowe's definitive documentary film and soundtrack of the same name, Pearl Jam Twenty is an aesthetically stunning and definitive chronicle of their two decades as a band--by the band itself. In 1991, Pearl Jam's debut album, Ten catapulted the little-known Seattle-based band into superstardom. Then, at the height of their popularity, the band shunned the spotlight, refusing to shoot videos or do interviews. Even as Pearl Jam's studio albums continued to be critically acclaimed and commercially successful, selling over sixty million albums worldwide, the inner workings of the band--their day-to-day routines, influences, and motivations--remained unknown even to their diehard fans. Twenty years later, this is their story. Pearl Jam Twenty is a treasure trove of behind-the-scenes anecdotes, rare archival memorabilia, and the band's personal photos, tour notes, and drawings. Told with wit and insight in the band members' own words, and assembled by veteran music writer Jonathan Cohen with Mark Wilkerson--and including a foreword by Cameron Crowe along with original interviews with legends and contemporaries like Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and Dave Grohl--this intimate work provides an in-depth look at a group of musicians who through defying convention established themselves as "the greatest American rock band ever" (USA TODAY Readers' Poll 2005).
