Synopsis

 On the centenary of the end of First World War, Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson presents an extraordinary new work showing the Great War as you have never seen it. Using state of the art technology to restore original archival footage which is more than a 100-years old, Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there. Using the voices of the men involved, the film explores the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate; slept and formed friendships, as well what their lives were like away from the trenches during their periods of downtime. Reaching into the mists of time, Jackson aims to give these men voices, investigate the hopes and fears of the veterans, the humility and humanity that represented a generation changed forever by a global war.

Lizzie and her sister Emma live claustrophobic lives under their father’s cold and domineering control, but Emma seems to handle it with a calmer demeanor. When Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart), a pretty young Irish maid, comes to work for the family, Lizzie finds a sympathetic and kindred spirit in her and the two develop an intimate relationship. Together, a secret intimacy soon blossoms into a wicked plan.

His devoted wife, Joan (Glenn Close), accompanies him to Stockholm for the award ceremony, where she meets a journalist, Nathaniel (Christian Slater). Nathaniel, hoping to write a biography on Joe, presses Joan for details of his life and information about when the two first met. In the late 1950s, Joe was a creative writing professor and Joan was his student. The two began a passionate affair that would lead to a 40-year marriage in which Joan sacrificed her own writing talent to support that of her husband. Back in 1993, Joan begins to question her life choices leading up to this point, particularly excusing his infidelities and abandoning her own dreams and ambitions for the sake of his. Soon her support for his Nobel Prize sours as she sees it to be the epitome of every sacrifice she has ever made in order for Joe to succeed.

Based on the novel by Meg Wolitzer.

She advises other kids to face their fears and let other people know the "real you." However, that's easier said than done, even for Kayla, who is mortified when she's labeled the "most quiet" of her eighth grade class. She considers herself funny, cool and talkative, although she admits she doesn't talk a lot at school. While trying to bond with other girls, she finds their attention is so far into their cell phones that they don't even hear her. She has a great dad, but she finds him embarrassing, so she limits communication with him, hoping instead to be accepted by the kids at school. Even though eighth grade can be hard, she looks forward to next year, when she'll be starting high school.
