In this wholly refreshing remake of the 1969 crime classic starring Michael Caine and Noel Coward, Mark Wahlberg stars as Charlie Croker, a smooth thief who orchestrates a flawless heist in Venice with the help of his mentor, safecracker John Bridger (Donald Sutherland). Together with his cronies--explosives expert Left-Ear (Mos Def), tech whiz kid Lyle (Seth Green), adrenaline junky Handsome Rob (Jason Statham), and the shady Steve (Edward Norton)--Charlie walks away with thirty-five million dollars worth of precious gold bars. But just when the gang appears to be headed to freedom, Steve performs a heist of his own, killing John and running off with the gold, thinking that Charlie and his mates are all deceased. A year later, Charlie has located Steve, who is gradually selling off the gold bars in Los Angeles. With the help of John's beautiful daughter Stella (Charlize Theron), a brilliant safecracker in her own right--as well as those adorable Mini Cooper sports cars--Charlie orchestrates a revenge heist that will teach Steve a valuable lesson about loyalty once and for all. F. Gary Gray's thoroughly entertaining caper film doesn't merely imitate the original, and that is what makes it such a pleasant surprise.

Wit, bon vivant, social gadfly, master of the mystic arts and star of stage and screen – Count Arthur Strong is none of these, though he likes to think he is... Steve Delaney returns as the pompously delusional Count Arthur in this BAFTA-nominated sitcom written by Delaney and Graham Linehan (Father Ted, The IT Crowd). Co-starring Rory Kinnear as Michael, a perpetually nervous writer and the son of Arthur’s late comedy partner, this complete second series contains all seven episodes, complete and uncut. Currently resting on his ample laurels, with the next big thing only a phone call away, Arthur whiles away his time by writing a novel full of damaging showbiz gossip – much to Michael's horror! Brushes with politics and a disastrous flying lesson pale into insignificance, however, when Arthur has to move in with Michael in the aftermath of yet another 'trouser fire'...

Commissioned by the Amsterdam Surgeons’ Guild, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp was the first major Rembrandt work to catapult the young painter to international fame. Taking this painting as its inspiration, Nina Siegal’s novel The Anatomy Lesson opens on the morning of the medical dissection and follows several characters as they prepare for the evening’s big event: we meet Aris the Kid, a one-handed coat thief who is awaiting his turn at the gallows; Flora, the woman who is pregnant with his child and who hopes to save him from the executioner; Jan Fetchet, a curio collector who also moonlights as an acquirer of medical cadavers; René Descartes, who will attend the dissection in the course of his quest to understand where the human soul resides; and the twenty-six-year-old Dutch master himself, who feels a shade uneasy about this assignment. And in the twenty-first century, there is Pia, a contemporary art historian who is examining the painting. As the story builds to its dramatic and inevitable conclusion, the events that transpire throughout the day sway Rembrandt to make fundamental changes to his initial composition. Bringing to life the vivid world of Amsterdam in 1632, The Anatomy Lesson offers a rich slice of history and a textured story by a young master. 1. Language: English.

Bigotry is an ugly and evil thing. What is even more insidious is when you start to hate the people of your own race. Kathy wanted to be white. She learned to talk white and walk white and even had herself a handsome white husband. The only thing wrong with her life was that she had been born black. While on a shopping trip in New England, Kathy comes across an old curio shop, which sells her a "special" mirror. With this mirror she can see what she wishes to see. With sleight of hand, the subtle bending of light, and the realization of truth, Kathy and her husband, Robert, learn the frightful lesson of...the mirror. 1. Language: English.

Have you ever believed God had made you sick to teach you a lesson? Do you believe God wants some to be sick but others to be well for a divine purpose known only to himself? Have you struggled with a healing in your body or spirit but it seemed as though God just doesn't want to answer your prayers for healing? Do you believe you've got a thorn in the flesh that God is using to refine your character? These are lies. This quick read will help destroy the traditions of man and lies of religion that nullify the power of God in your life. What we believe about God and how he works can have a dramatic impact on how we approach him and what we expect of him. Many Christians believe lies about God that keep them bound and prevent healing in their bodies and in their lives. In his conversational style, Steve helps you learn what some of the top lies are that hold Christians and unbelievers back when it comes to divine healing. You, too, can receive healing and heal the sick. Quit believing lies today. God is not just "able" to heal, he is willing! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Bremner.
