PG. 2004. Cu­ri­ous but en­joy­able drama sug­gests Peter Pan cre­ator J.M. Bar­rie found in­spi­ra­tion through his friend­ship with widow Kate Winslet and her four young boys. Bar­rie, Johnny Depp, is a child­like man who en­joys play­ing pi­rates and cow­boys with the lads, while si­mul­ta­ne­ously stag­ing a play.

M. 1955. Bril­liant French film, di­rected by Amer­i­can Jules Dassin, with as­sorted criminals com­ing to­gether for the rob­bery but un­able to work as a team.

G. 1945. Os­carnom­i­nated se­quel to Go­ing My Way with Fa­ther Bing Crosby ap­pointed to a new parish which is in dan­ger of be­ing de­mol­ished.
