Capote Cert 15
Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Clifton Collins Jr.
In November 1959, the shocking murder of a smalltown Kansas family captures the imagination of Truman Capote, famed author of Breakfast at TiffanyÂ’s. With his childhood friend Harper Lee, writer of soon to be published To Kill a Mockingbird, Capote sets out to investigate, winning
over the locals despite his flamboyant appearance and style. When he forms a bond with the killers and their execution date nears, the writing of In Cold Blood, a book that will change the course of American literature, takes a drastic toll on capote, changing him in a way he never imagined.

Syriana Cert 15
George Clooney, Amanda Peet, Matt Damon Stephen GaghanÂ’s.
Syriana follows the multi-plot narrative of his previous films such as Oscar winner for Best Screenplay “Traffic” and “Crash” did so well. Syriana is an espionage thriller set in the Middle East and told in four independent parts. George Clooney stars as Bob Barnes, a long-time CIA agent preparing to slow down his life and spend more time with his teenage son (Max Minghella). But his last secret mission, getting rid of Prince Nasir (Alexander Siddig), turns out to be more complicated than he imagined, placing him in the middle of a dangerous conspiracy involving government corruption, oil, and international terrorism. Matt Damon plays Bryan Woodman, an energy man whose ethics become vulnerable after the horrific loss of one of his sons. Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., lawyers Bennett Holiday (Jeff rey Wright) and Dean Whiting (Christopher Plummer) also must choose between the government’s special interests and what’s best for the world (as well as their own special interests). While a little over-indulgent in its complexity it is riddled with tension enhancing scenes. The acting and direction is superb but be warned half the fi lm is subtitled, adding to the realism. Syriana at no times dumbs down or glosses over the arguments about oil politics.
