Films contain adult situations and language

Game 6
Nicky Rogan s (Michael Keaton) new play is opening on Broadway and many agree, it s the best work of his career. Or is it? Critic Steven Schwimmer is slated to review it and he s ruined many a playwright with his scathing words. Nicky is becoming concerned, but instead chooses to obsess over his Red Sox and their chances against the Mets in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. Will the Sox and his play come crashing down on the same night?

Seize the Day
Tommy Wilhelm (Academy Award Winner Robin Williams) is a salesman. An honest, hard-working guy who has lost his job, his girlfriend, and left part of his sanity behind as he heads to New York to pick up the pieces of his life. He s always been able to sell, but caught in a downward spiral, he must, in addition, face the father who never really understood him, while trying to balance his newly precarious existence.

Manito
Directed by first-time filmmaker Eric Eason, Mainto is a riveting story of two brothers set against the volatile backdrop of a changing inner city. Shot in cinema verite style, Manito reflects a community as it transforms from drugs and violence to one of the most vibrant Spanish-speaking communities in the U.S.

Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont
Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont centers around an elegant elderly lady, Mrs. Palfrey (Academy Award nominee Joan Plowright) who, after being recently widowed, moves to London to be near her 26-year-old grandson. But when he fails to return her calls or visit her at the less than posh Claremont Hotel, fate brings her together with a young writer, Ludo (Rupert Friend), after she has an accident outside his basement flat. Eventually, Ludo ends up helping Mrs. Palfrey by pretending to be her grandson, so that the other off-beat elderly residents of the hotel believe that she hasn t been lying, and that she really does have a grandson. The two newly found friends discover they have a lot more in common with each other than they do with other people their own ages.

One of the best films is Manito, a truly independent film which shows the joys and sorrows of a Latino family living in Washington Heights: 5 Stars. I give 1 Star to Game 6 a1986 film with Michael Keaton and Robert Downey Jr., written by Don DeLillo. I give 1 Star to Seize The Day by Saul Bellow and starring Robin Williams, who should have stuck with comedy roles, from 1956. Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont gets 5 Stars. I agree with Roger Ebert's assessment of this film: "Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont...is a delight, in ways both expected and rare." Joan Plowright as Mrs. Palfrey takes first place.

Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont was an excellent heart warming movie and Rupert Friend an actor that I will want to see in many more movies, the other movies in this pack were no good.
