Nicholls also directed a film adaptation of O’Neill’s “Mourning Becomes Electra,” in 1947. Superficially, the film is the story of the crew of the British freighter, “The Glencairn”, shortly after the start of World War II. However, “The Long Voyage Home” is less a story film, than a visual tone poem of men escaping the realities of life on land, through an addiction to life at sea.

Parish hasn’t written in twenty years and lives a reclusive life with his daughters in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Sent to track down Parish by his boss Mr. Benton (Rhys-Davies), Jeremy finds Parish an ornery, protective sort with a prankish sense of humor. Initially incurring Parish’s ire with his slick, businessman’s approach, Jeremy begins a long process to win Parish’s trust, and in the result finds in him an encouraging mentor on life as well as writing. As Jeremy begins to unlock his own repressed writer’s ...

title: Little House On The Prairie function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Disney DVD MPAA rating: TV-PG starring: Cameron Bancroft, Erin Cottrell, Kyle Chavarria, Danielle Ryan Cochran tv airdate year: 2005 DVD release year: 2006 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh If your knowledge of “Little House on the Prairie” is only derived from that Michael Landon-produced TV program in the ‘70s, this recent Disney miniseries may come as a revelation to you. Unlike the popular TV show of the same name, this production adheres more closely to writer Laura Ingalls Wilder’s original nineteenth-century stories. Whereas Landon created new adventures for the characters, ones not first found in the books, this work only presents what was described on the written page.

title: Dead Poets Society function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Touchstone Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Robin Williams, Ethan Hawke, Robert Sean Leonard, Kurtwood Smith, Josh Charles, Gale Hansen, Alexandra Powers film release year: 1989 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture rating: Two-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas “Dead Poets Society” became the private/boarding school movie against which all others are judged, whether or not they were made after the 1989 film. An intelligent, moving and inspirational piece from director Peter Weir (whose most recent work was “Master and Commander”), this film also solidified Robin Williams’ reputation as a dramatic actor. It also helped to launch the careers of many young actors like Ethan Hawke, Robert Sean Leonard and Josh Charles.
