The Secret Life of Bees (2008). Great flick. If I were Dakota Fanning age, life would travel a different path! She totally blows me away in this film. And supporting cast damn near equals! theCapn says check it out!
I am a big fan of Unfaithful because of Diane Lane. She plays an unfaithful wife of a man, who after suspecting that she is cheating on him, confronts her lover. This erotic/psychological thriller is one of few movies of Richard Gere that I liked. I think Lane and Gere have a special chemistry that works on screen. Their films together have been great, see Nights in Rodanthe for example. The movie is a bit dark for a thriller and it really works for this film.
I have heard good things about The Help but it really blew me away. This poignant and inspiring story takes place in Jackson, Miss. in the 1960s. An aspiring writers wants to write about the African American maids in the south, she encounters resistance from both sides. When the book is published, it nudged the civil rights movement forward. Truly inspiring film based on a book. The acting was superb shown by several Oscar nominations and wins. A must see movie for historical sake at least.
The Bodyguard (1992) A former Secret Service agent grudgingly takes an assignment to protect a pop idol who has a determined stalker. At first, the protector and diva clash, but soon trust and attraction overpower the unlikely pair.
