Postcards From The Edge
Based on actress Carrie Fisher's best-selling autobiographical novel, POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE is a wickedly witty expose of life in the Hollywood fast lane. In a brilliant comic performance, Meryl Streep stars as Suzanne Vale, a wisecracking, vulnerable actress determined to jump start her failing career. As her ageing movie star mother, Shirley MacLaine offers the definitive portrait of Hollywood's gutsy glamour queens in scenes spiked with razor-edged humour and searing honesty. Dennis Quaid, Rob Reiner and an all-star cast offer a bird's-eye view of Hollywood's has-beens and wanna-bes. Funny and uncompromising, POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE dishes the Tinseltown dirt with style and wit, serving up a delicious behind-the-scenes comedy that no film lover can resist.

Steel Magnolias: Collector's Edition
A beautiful, bittersweet human comedy set in America's deep south, STEEL MAGNOLIAS unites the talens of Hollywood's finest actresses as six very special friends bonded together by their mutual triumphs and tragedies. Despite their differences, beautiful and impulsive Shelby (JULIA ROBERTS in her Academy Award nominated role), her strong-willed mother M'Lynn (SALLY FIELD), beauty parlour owner Truvy (DOLLY PARTON), elegant widow Clairee (OLYMPIA DUKAKIS), sharp-tongued Ouiser (SHIRLEY MacLAINE) and mousy newcomer Annelle (DARYL HANNAH) enjoy a friendship that spans the boundaries of age and status. Sharing each other's strength and loyalty, these six remarkable women survive the cycles of life, birth and death to emerge stronger, closer and still laughing!

Guarding Tess
The country loves her. The President listens to her. But he's the secret service agent stuck in the worst assignment of all - guarding Tess.

Nicholas Cage (star of films like City of Angels and The Family Man) is hilarious as the beleaguered agent and Golden Globe Award nominee Shirley MacLaine (from Steel Magnolias and Terms of Endearment) shines as the feisty, former First Lady who seems intent on making his life hell. These great Hollywood talents join forces for the first time in this classy, feel-good comedy that's like "Driving Miss Daisy with attitude (USA Today)" and guaranteed to have you in stitches.
