Synopsis

A lavish romantic drama that charts the lives of three women from different backgrounds, forever changed when they emigrate to New Zealand as war brides. Eager to escape the gloom of post-war Holland, shy but sensual farm girl Ada, dogmatic Marjorie, and Jewish fashion designer Esther become become friends during the 1953 KLM flight that carried the brides to their waiting husbands, who have already settled in Christchurch. They part ways on arrival in their new country and begin their new lives, but their paths continue to cross in the years to come. Chance meetings result in love affairs, betrayal and impenetrable bonds, leading up to a final reunion fifty years later.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for September 20th, 2011

September 20th, 2011

It's another incredibly busy week on the home market with over 400 new releases on Amazon.com.

There are several major releases coming out in this group, including a few that are prime contender for Pick of the Week. Bridesmaids on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Castle: Season Three, and Dumbo: Blu-ray Combo Pack were all on the shortlist. But in the end, that honor went to Modern Family: Season Two. More...

Per Theater Chart: Hat Trick for Tree

June 14th, 2011

The Tree of Life remained in top spot on the per theater chart with an average of $17,596 in 47 theaters. It will clearly expand further, and it is safe to say it has already earned some measure of mainstream success. The Trip opened well with an average of $12,984 in six theaters. It did earn great reviews, so it might last a long time in theaters. On the other hand, I think its target audience is too narrow to expand significantly. Beginners was in a virtual tie with an average of $12,793. It will start hitting milestones soon. Super 8 opened with an average of $10,492 while in saturation level theater count. More...

Limited Releases are a Real Trip

June 10th, 2011

While this week's list of limited releases isn't as long as some in the past couple of months, it does have one of the best-reviewed films of the summer, The Trip. And while Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are not exactly household names here, the latest film by Michael Winterbottom could turn out to be his biggest hit here. More...
