Fox Searchlight Collection: Volume 2
For the past 15 years, film lovers across the globe have turned to Fox Searchlight for cutting-edge, intriguing cinema of the highest caliber. The three films in this anthology are among the world's favorites.
Little Miss Sunshine
Father Richard (Greg Kinnear) is desperately trying to sell his motivational success program...with no success. Meanwhile, "pro-honesty" mom Sheryl (Toni Collette) lends support to her eccentric family, including her depressed brother (Steve Carell), fresh out of the hospital after being jilted by his lover. Then there are the younger Hoovers - the seven-year-old, would-be beauty queen Olive (Abigail Breslin) and Dwayne (Paul Dano), a Nietzsche-reading teen who has taken a vow of silence. Topping off the family is the foul-mouthed grandfather (Alan Arkin), whose outrageous behavior recently got him evicted from his retirement home.
Now even more intoxicating on Blu-ray, this breathlessly funny comedy stars Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church as Miles and Jack, old college buddies who take a wine-tasting road trip through California's famed central coast to celebrate Jack's upcoming nuptials. But Miles' desire to savor the regions' wines suddenly takes a back seat to Jack's desire to sample its women! Co-starring Sandra Oh and Virginia Madsen, Sideways "has it all: inspired direction.....bracing wit and emotional gravity" (Rolling Stone)!
Inspired by the true life experiences of its title character, Antwone Fisher tells the compelling story of a troubled sailor (Luke) who is ordered to see a naval psychiatrist (Washington) about his volatile temper. Little does he know that his first step into the doctor's office will lead him on a remarkable emotional journey to confront his painful past - and connect with the family the never knew.
