Religious drama which chronicles the arduous journey of two people, Mary (Keisha Castle-Hughes) and Joseph (Oscar Isaac), a miraculous pregnancy, and the history-defining birth of Jesus.
Thriller in which a demented killer carries out gruesome executions over the Internet. He believes it's his duty, his mission, to protect the world from the growing capitalist environment created by the bureaucrats of America. And in order to spread his 'message', the killer forces people who wish to watch the executions to first endure a webcast of his political rantings: that is, to see the killings, one must hear what the killer has to say. Ultimately it is up to NYPD cop, Charlie Daines (Armand Assante), to track down and eliminate the killer. But once Daines discovers that the killer has been secretly videotaping the police via hidden cameras at the crime scenes, they know that they are not dealing with the average psychopath.

Ed Loy hasn't been back to Dublin for 20 years, but his mother is dead and he has returned home to bury her. He soon realises that the city waiting for him is very different from the one he left behind all those years ago. Loy finds himself thrown into a world of organised crime, corruption and violence.
Private Investigator Ed Loy is working on what looks like an open and shut case: the disappearance of dentist Shane Howard's daughter, Emily. Little does Loy realize that this seemingly simple case will involve him delving into the world of blackmail, organized crime and the very murky secrets of the Howard family. Locating Emily turns out to be only the beginning. Within hours, Emily's ex-boyfriend is found murdered, and Loy finds himself in a race against time to catch a killer...
Even the best private eye needs more than a name to find a missing person, but that's all that Father Vincent Tyrrell, the brother of prominent racehorse trainer F.X. Tyrrell, will offer Loy when he comes to him for help. A dwindling bank account convinces Loy to delve into the deadly underworld of horse racing, but fortune soon smiles on him: while working another case, he discovers a phone number linked to F.X. on a badly beaten body left at an illegal dump. Loy's been around long enough to know that there's more to the Tyrrell family than meets the eye - and then a third body appears...
Ed Loy hasn't been back to Dublin for 20 years. But his mother is dead and he has returned home to bury her. He soon realizes that the world waiting for him is very different from the one he left behind all those years ago. An old classmate, Linda Dawson, pleads with him to find her missing husband, Peter. She doesn't want the police involved. When Loy finds an old photograph of his long-missing father on Peter Dawson's boat, and a corpse is discovered in the foundations of the local town hall, things begin to get personal. Suddenly, in this place where he grew up, he finds himself thrown into a world of organized crime, long-hidden secrets, corruption and violence, and murder.
Edna O'Brien depicts James Joyce as a man hammered by Church, State and family, yet from such adversities he wrote works 'to bestir the hearts of men and angels'. The journey begins with Joyce the arrogant youth, his lofty courtship of Nora Barnacle, their hectic sexuality, children, wanderings, debt and profligacy, and Joyce's obsession with the city of Dublin, which he would re-render through his words. Nor does Edna O'Brien spare us the anger and isolation of Joyce's later years, when he felt that the world had turned its back on him, and she asks how could it be otherwise for a man who knew that conflict is the source of all creation. 'A delight from start to finish . . . achieves the near impossibility of giving a thoroughly fresh view of Joyce' Sunday Times 'As skilful, stylish and pacy as one would expect from so adept a novelist' Sunday Telegraph 'Accessible and passionate, it is a book which should bring Joyce in all his glory and agony to a new and very wide audience' Irish Independent
