Toast DVD Toast
A delicious love letter to the tastes and smells that a young boy associates with his journey into adulthood. Nigel's Mother was always a poor cook, and her addiction to all things canned isn't helping. Nigel, on the other hand, laps up cookbooks as if they were porn, and spends all his free time gazing longingly at the delights offered at Percy Salt's grocery shop.

Sad story of a chef's young life.

The decoy bride DVD The decoy bride
When the world's media descend on the remote Scottish Island where a Hollywood actress is attempting to get married, a local girl is hired as a decoy bride to put the paparazzi off the scent.

While this got a low rating on Rotten Tomatoes, I found it to be charming, sweet and slightly awkward...just how I like my romantic comedies. Plus, it stars David Tennant (of Doctor Who fame) and Kelly MacDonald (Trainspotting, Brave), who are both delightful.

Bridesmaids DVD Bridesmaids

Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she'll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you'll go for someone you love.

In turns embarrassing, hilarious, foul, and moving.

Kurt Cobain about a son DVD Kurt Cobain about a son
A rare and personal portrait of a boy who becomes a musician, a husband, a rock star, a father and a songwriter whose words have touched millions. Cobain's story unfolds through his own narrative assembled from more than 25 hours of audiotaped conversations, never before made public.

Beautiful visual portrait of the Northwest played over the words of K.C. Lovely and haunting. Only disappointment...no Nirvana music! Suggested by Dawn

There is not such a cradle of democracy upon the earth as the Free Public Library,
this republic of letters, where neither rank, office, nor wealth receives the slightest consideration.
