The Magic of Belle Isle (2012) 1 Hour & 49 Min.
Cast: Morgan Freeman, Virginia Madsen, Directed by Rob Reiner
This is a movie of the heart, hopelessly romantic and overwhelmingly personal. The power of friendship, trust and the willingness to listen are the basis for a movie of this genre.
A Shine of Rainbows (2011) 1 Hour & 41 Mins.
Cast: Aidan Quinn, Connie Nielsen, John Bell
A truly inspiring story of one ordinary family’s extraordinary journey. An orphaned boy names Tomas is adopted by Maire O’Donnell to live on a whimsical Irish isle filled with new friends, secret caves, etc. But when Maire’s reluctant husband Alec refuses to accept Tomas as his own son, the boy drifts down a fateful path of adventure and self-discovery, illuminating how rainbows can shine around, and within us all.
The Butler (2013) 2 Hour & 12 Mins.
Cast: Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Vanessa Redgrave, Robin Williams, John Cusack, Clarence Williams III, James Marsden, Live Schreiber, Alan Richman and an array of cameo appearances by various actors.
The movie was inspired by a true story about Cecil Gaines, a devoted husband, father, and White House butler who served eight Presidential administrations during the turbulent politics and civil rights battles of twentieth century America.
