Cider House Rules, The / The Shipping News (Double Feature)

The Cider House Rules

Honored with two Academy Awards - 1991, Best Supporting Actor, Michael Caine and Best Adapted Screenplay, John Irving - The Cider House Rules tells a compelling and heartwarming story about how far a young man must travel to find the place where he truly belongs! Homer Wells (Tobey Maguire, Pleasantville, The Ice Storm, Wonder Boys) has lived nearly his entire life within the walls of St. Cloud's Orphanage in rural Maine. Though groomed by its proprietor, Dr. Larch (Caine), to be his successor, Homer nonetheless feels the need to strike out on his own and experience the world outside. Then, while working at an apple orchard, Homer falls for the beautiful Candy (Charlize Theron, Reindeer Games, The Devil's Advocate) and learns some powerfully indelible lessons about life, love and home! Based on John Irving's best-selling American classic and featuring a sensational all-star cast including Delroy Lindo and Erykah Badu, this entertaining motion picture earned raves from critics and moviegoers everywhere!

The Shipping News

Academy Award-winning stars Kevin Spacey (1999, American Beauty, Best Actor) and Judi Dench (1998, Shakespeare In Love, Best Supporting Actress) join talents with Julianne Moore (Hannibal) and Cate Blanchett (The Lord Of The Rings) in this deeply moving motion picture from the director of Chocolat and The Cider House Rules! After tragedy strikes, Quoyle (Spacey) moves with his daughter from upstate New York to his ancestral home in a small Newfoundland fishing village. With a job at the local newspaper and a developing romance with a woman (Moore) who lives with her own demons, Quoyle is transformed by this place of magic, beauty and hardship. In a compelling story based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Quoyle's past melds with his present in an inspirational journey of self discovery and second chances.
