Product Description
A film that chronicles the life of 18th century aristocrat Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, an ancestor of Princess Di. Captivating.

Swaddled in whalebone and wigs, Keira Knightley steps into the restricted world of the Duchess of Devonshire, a royal lady popular with her subjects but stuck in an unhappy marriage. If this situation recalls Princess Diana (a descendent of the Duchess's family), so much the better for the purposes of director Saul Dibb and company; this film is eager to draw parallels with the unfortunate Lady Di, even if she is never directly mentioned. Knightley's unsuspecting girl is married off to the Duke (Ralph Fiennes), a distracted jerk who craves sons, and obviously has never thought of women as anything other than a means to achieve an heir. When the Duchess launches her procreative career with a couple of daughters, well, the Duke begins to get nervous--and partners outside the marriage become increasingly appealing. The Duchess serves up lavish portions of Brit-movie staples: costumes (which, in Knightley's case, are nothing short of spectacular), landscapes, and gorgeous music (by Rachel Portman). If it falls short in some vague way, perhaps it's because the film is a mostly one-note affair, meaning exactly what it seems to mean at every moment. Charlotte Rampling appears too briefly as Knightley's mother, and Dominic Cooper and Hayley Atwell (from Brideshead Revisited), rising stars both, contribute attractive lures for the principals. They prove the old movie adage: there's a lot to be said for eye candy. --Robert Horton

Action thriller from popular writer/director, Guy Ritchie. Jake Green (Jason Statham) is a hotshot gambler, long on audacity and short on common sense. He's rarely allowed to play in any casino these days because he's dangerous - he's a winner. One night Jake and his two older brothers, Billy (Andrew Howard) and Joe (Stephen Walters), are invited to sit in on a private game. A game that is fixed for Jake to lose to Macha (Ray Liotta), a top dog crime boss and casino owner who can't play for squat, but always wins because you just aren't allowed to lose to him. But Jake isn't afraid of Macha and not only beats him in a quick game of chance, but also takes every possible opportunity to throw insults. As Jake and his brothers leave the game, Macha puts out the order for a hit on Jake. However, a twist of fate gets Jake working for a pair of brothers, who just happen to have their own agenda for Macha. Note: May be Shipped within Thailand for an additional Cost

My kids got me hooked on Jimmy Neutron when they were still young. My son quoted a line from either the movie or the show and I was right back to when we used to watch together. The kids are all grown up now, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to relive the old days by watching this great movie again and again! It’s been 15 years since I last seen this. I have forgotten how funny and how action packed it is. Special Features Included! Note: May be shipped within Thailand for an additional Cost.
