Layer Cake – Director Matthew Vaughn’s incredible breakout crime thriller stars the great Daniel Craig and Colm Meaney with Tom Hardy and Sienna Miller. Craig stars as a very professional cocaine dealer who gets two last tasks to do from his boss as hes about to retire, and between the amazing cast and the twisting story, the film is an incredible ride. Watch a scene from the film.
Bottle Shock – Chris Pine and Alan Rickman star with Bill Pullman, Dennis Farina, and Rachael Taylor in the true to life story about California’s rise in the world of wine making.

Austenland – Keri Russell and JJ Feild star with Jennifer Coolidge and Jane Seymour in the story of a young woman, played by Russell, who is obsessed with Pride and Prejudice.
