The Val­ley Of Amaze­ment

Amy Tan Vi­o­let Min­turn is the priv­i­leged daugh­ter of the Amer­i­can madam of the city’s most ex­clu­sive cour­te­san house. When the Ching dy­nasty is over­turned, she is sep­a­rated from her mother and forced to be­come a “vir­gin cour­te­san.” Half-Chi­nese and half-Amer­i­can, Vi­o­let grap­ples with the East and West — un­til she is able to merge her two halves, em­pow­er­ing her to be­come a shrewd cour­te­san who ex­cels in the busi­ness of se­duc­tion and il­lu­sion.

Brid­get Jones: Mad About The Boy

He­len Field­ing Brid­get Jones is now 51 and a widow. She’s rais­ing her two chil­dren, fa­thered by Mark Darcy, and is slowly mak­ing her way into the dat­ing scene while work­ing on what is sup­posed to be a screen­play. She gets a Twit­ter ac­count and finds her­self ob­sess­ing over the num­ber of fol­low­ers she has, just like how she used to be ob­sessed about her weight. Brid­get starts flirt­ing on Twit­ter with some­one named Roxster, who turns out to be 29. Their re­la­tion­ship goes on a roller-coaster ride of emo­tions, and Brid­get is once again plagued by her neu­roses that are now cou­pled with con­cerns of life as a sin­gle mother.
