Lynn Shelton directs this US comedy starring Keira Knightley, Chloë Grace Moretz and Sam Rockwell. Though Megan (Knightley) is 28 years old, an age when many women would be looking to settle down, she remains young at heart - to the extent that she flees when her boyfriend Anthony (Mark Webber) proposes to her. Informing the bewildered Anthony that she will be away at a conference for the next week, Megan instead seeks refuge with 14-year-old Annika (Moretz). The opportunity to relive her adolescence through hanging out with Annika and her friends clearly appeals to Megan, but will her growing relationship with the girl's father, Craig (Rockwell), force her to face reality at last?

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu won the prize for Best Director at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival for this powerful multi-narrative drama set in Morocco, Mexico and Tokyo. A young American couple, Richard (Brad Pitt) and Susan (Cate Blanchett), go to Morocco on holiday to restore their fragile relationship following the death of one of their children. However, they are catapulted into disaster when a rogue gunshot fired by a Moroccan farmer's young son brings Susan to the brink of death. Meanwhile, the couple's other two children have been left at home in San Diego in the care of their housekeeper Amelia (Adriana Barraza), who cannot find anyone to mind the children while she attends her son's wedding across the border in Tijuana, Mexico. She decides to take them with her, a decision that nearly costs all three their lives. In the third storyline, set in Tokyo, a teenage deaf-mute rebel, Chieko (Rinko Kikuchi), is reeling after the apparent suicide of her mother. Her attention-seeking behaviour makes her increasingly vulnerable, but can she attract the attention of the person she feels most isolated from: her father? The implications of language, whether unspoken or misunderstood, are the recurring theme in this set of interlocking tales of love, prejudice and the connections between us all.

Six films from the celebrated and idiosyncratic American director, David Lynch. In 'Blue Velvet' (1986) Kyle MacLachlan stars as naive young Jeffrey Beaumont, who becomes involved in murder, voyeurism, sado-masochism and a terrifying evil after he discovers a severed ear in a deserted field. Isabella Rossellini plays the nightclub singer Beaumont becomes obsessed with, a woman ensnared in a brutal relationship with the psychopathic Frank (Dennis Hopper). In sci-fi epic 'Dune' (1984) a precious life-enhancing spice is guarded by monster worms on a distant planet. Paul Atreides (MacLachlan) is the Prince who leads his people against the territorial designs of the Harkonnens, and discovers he is earmarked for an even greater destiny. In surrealist nightmare 'Eraserhead' (1977) Henry (John Nance) lives in a grimy tenement block set against a grey industrial landscape. When his girlfriend (Charlotte Stewart) becomes pregnant, she moves in and the couple try to look after their new baby: a slimy bundle of tissue whose screaming drives them to insanity. In 'Lost Highway' (1997) saxophonist Fred Madison (Bill Pullman) receives a series of videos showing the exterior, then the interior, of the house he shares with his wife, Renee (Patricia Arquette). Then, after meeting a mysterious man at a party, he receives another tape showing him with Renee's dismembered corpse. Found guilty of her murder, Fred is put in prison, where he inexplicably transforms into another person - mechanic Pete Dayton (Balthazar Getty) - who is set free and goes to work for Mr Eddy (Robert Loggia), a gangster who is dating Alice (Arquette again), Renee's blonde doppelgänger. 'Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me' (1992), the cinematic prequel to the 'Twin Peaks' television series, traces the events leading up to the death of troubled teen Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). The saga begins when local police discover the corpse of a young woman named Teresa Banks. The FBI arrive to investigate and turn up a set of unusual circumstances, only to have two of their agents disappear without trace. Yet while the federal investigation continues under the leadership of the newly-assigned Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), Banks's friend Laura Palmer sinks deeper and deeper into a personal hell involving nightmare visions, cocaine abuse and doomed relationships. Finally, in 'Wild at Heart' (1990), a twisted, comedic homage to 'The Wizard of Oz', ex-con Sailor (Nicolas Cage) and Lulu (Laura Dern) are madly in love. But as they set off on the run from both the law and Lulu's mother, their attempt to leave one life for another leads them to some of the weirdest people and places in America.

As she questions the locals about their beliefs, she hears stories of how the Candyman will apparently be summoned into corporeal existence if anyone speaks his name five times in a row.

Charlie Kaufman, writer of the cult film 'Being John Malkovich', returns with another mind-bendingly inventive and unconventional plotline, this time driving a tender romantic comedy. Jim Carrey stars as Joel, a shy oddball who is stunned to discover that his longterm girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet), with whom he has recently split up, has undergone an experimental psychiatric treatment to have her memories of their tumultuous relationship erased. Still in love with her, and frustrated at the thought that she has no memory of their times together, he elects to undergo the procedure himself, and contacts the company who have pioneered it. The team, led by Dr Howard Mierzwaik (Tom Wilkinson), hook Joel up their computer and begin the process. The film, the majority of which takes place inside Joel's mind, then follows each of his memories of Clementine back in time as the most recent ones are systematically erased. But Joel's subconscious struggles to hold on to the memories as they slip away, and one of the nurses, Mary (Kirsten Dunst), who has undergone the treatment herself, sees his distress and eventually decides to send Joel and Clementine their files so that they know what they have lost.

The film shows how Assange and the others in his WikiLeaks team have disclosed a large volume of state secrets and classified information through their website in the hopes of informing the public of their government's true nature. Most notoriously, the group published a video of the indiscriminate killing of over a dozen people in Iraq by the US military in 2010 with the help of intelligence analyst-turned whistleblower Bradley Manning. But through this decision Assange and his colleagues were made enemies of the state and forced to consider whether their actions were justifiable or if the cost of full disclosure is too high...

The Newark Teacher Strikes - Hopes on the Line (Hardcover): Steve Golin The Newark Teacher Strikes - Hopes on the Line (Hardcover)
Steve Golin
R785 Discovery Miles 7 850 Special order

For three weeks in 1970 and for eleven weeks in 1971, the schools in Newark, New Jersey, were paralyzed as the teachers went on strike. In the wake of the 1971 strike, almost two hundred were arrested and jailed. The Newark Teachers Union said their members wanted improved education for students. The Board of Education claimed the teachers primarily desired more money. After interviewing more than fifty teachers who were on the front lines during these strikes, historian Steve Golin concludes that another, equally important agenda was on the table, and has been ignored until now. These professionals wanted power, to be allowed a voice in the educational agenda.

Through these oral histories, Golin examines the hopes of the teachers as they picketed, risking arrest and imprisonment. Why did they strike? How did the union represent them? How did their action -- and incarceration -- change them? Did they continue to teach in impoverished schools? Golin also discusses the tensions arising during that period. These include differences in attitudes toward unions among Black, Jewish, and Italian teachers; different organizing strategies of men and women; and conflict between teachers' professional and working-class identities.

The first part of the book sets the stage by exploring the experience of teachers in Newark from World War II to the 1970 strike. After covering both strikes, Golin brings the story up to 1995 in the epilogue, which traces the connection between educational reform and union democracy. The Newark Teacher Strikes enhances our understanding of what has worked and what hasn't worked in attempts at reforming urban schools. Equally important, the teachers' vivid words andthe author's perceptive analysis enable us to view the struggles of not just Newark, but the entire United States during a turbulent time.
