This touching drama of eternal love, directed by Jonathan Glazer, stars Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman, Lauren Bacall, Danny Huston and Cameron Bright. Kidman plays a Manhattan widow, Anna who comes across a persuasive 10-year-old boy (Cameron Bright) convincing her he is the reincarnation of her late husband, who died 10 years earlier. Anna's initial scepticism is brushed off as the child has such uncanny and intimate knowledge of the former couple's life. She cannot erase him from her mind and finds she needs to be with him regularly, which leads Joseph (Danny Huston), the man she plans to marry, to intense jealousy and puts a strain on their marriage plans.

Rob Gordon is the owner of a semi-failing record store located on one of the back streets of Chicago. He sells music the old-fashioned way, on vinyl, with his two wacky clerks - the hysterically funny rock snob Barry and the more quietly opinionated underachiever Dick. But Rob's business isn't the only thing in his life that's floundering - his needle skips the love groove when his long-time girlfriend Laura walks out on him. And this forces him to examine his past failed attempts at romance the only way he knows how.

Cinema Verite tells the behind-the-scenes story of the ground breaking documentary An American Family, which chronicled the lives of a Santa Barbara family, the Louds, in the early 1970s, catapulting them to notoriety while creating a new television genre: reality TV. The story dramatises the genesis of the original PBS series when Pat and Bill Loud (Diane Lane and Tim Robbins) are approached to participate in the project by film maker Craig Gilbert (James Gandolfini), and agree to have cameras follow their family in and around Santa Barbara, CA for several months. Gilbert believed that the struggles of an everyday family would be relatable to Americans in a way that The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family were not. Yet over the course of filming, the strains on this seemingly perfect family come sharply into focus. In addition, Pat and the films' crew, Alan and Susan Raymond (Patrick Fugit and Shanna Collins), find themselves at odds with Gilbert about what is appropriate to film, and the lines between truth and 'reality' become more murky.

Marie Tussaud, a character rooted in the 18th revolutionary century, had a front row seat at two revolutions: a political revolution in France and the Industrial Revolution in Britain. Following in her footsteps, revisit the history of wax portraiture and popular entertainment in full bloom in the early 19th century when Great Britain was undergoing an unprecedented industrial and economic boom. Marie Tussaud was a talented wax artist, as well as an entrepreneur, but also a marketing pioneer. She toured Ireland, Scotland and England with a travelling museum, before ending her life in London at the head of a colossal empire, the Madame Tussaud's wax museum. How did a woman survive such dangerous times, and rise to the status of national treasure in a country whose language she could barely master?
