Against All Odds
Directed by Taylor Hackford
Terry Brogan (Jeff Bridges), a cynical ex-football star, is hired to find Jessie Wyler (Rachel Ward), the runaway mistress of a ruthless L.A. nightclub owner, Jake Wise (James Woods). According to Jake, Jessie had stabbed him and vanished with $50,000. But Terry’s mission is soon forgotten when he tracks down and falls in love with the beautiful Jessie on a Mexican island. Trouble brews, however, when Jake dispatches his henchman, Hank Sully (Alex Karras), to bring the lovers back. Driven by passion for the mysterious young woman, Terry quickly finds himself trapped in a complex web of corruption, betrayal, and murder.

Awakenings
Directed by Penny Marshall
Robin Williams plays Dr. Malcolm Sayer, a shy research physician who uses an experimental drug to “awaken” the catatonic victims of a rare disease. Robert DeNiro co-stars as Leonard, the first patient to receive the controversial treatment. His awakening, filled with awe and enthusiasm, proves a rebirth for Sayer, too, as the exuberant patient reveals life’s simple–but unutterably sweet–pleasures to the introverted doctor.

Random Hearts
Directed by Academy Award-winner Sydney Pollack
Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas ignite the screen as an Internal Affairs sergeant and a Congresswoman who become entangled in a shocking mystery – and an unexpected romance – after their spouses are killed in a plane crash together.

Upbeat Johnny’s out for some “urban input,” but some street hoods, a greedy banker and a gang of crooks see his naiveté as their high-tech ticket to easy street. Will Johnny survive the big bad city and its big, bad city slickers? Keep your wires crossed when you switch on this high voltage film.
