"L" is A Little Sex

Romantic Comedy.  Directed by Bruce Paltrow  Starring: Tim Matheson ...  Kate Capshaw ...  Edward Herrmann

from reviews on IMDb
Not a Great film more a lighthearted romp and look at the "myth of monogamy" whatever that means . Great chemistry between Tim Matheson and Kate Capshaw. "A Little Sex" is now rather dated, produced at a time when casual sex was still considered fun, liberating and relatively safe. How times have changed.

Starring Christopher Reeve

from IMDB:

"John Flaherty (Christopher Reeve) is a young and ambitious American priest who arrives in the Papal Sovereign city state of the Vactican in 1944 to take his holy orders as a catholic priest. After distinguishing himself in combat in the World War II battlefields of northern Italy, he's assigned as the Vactican treasurer. With the Vactican strapped for money during the war, Flaherty soon makes illegal business deals with a corrupt U.S. Army sergeant, named Varese (Joseph Cortese), who deals goods on the local black market which is connected to a ruthless Sicilian mobster, named Don Appolini (Jason Miller). Appolini agrees to fund Flaherty's operation for profit through his Swiss bank connections. Flaherty's mentor, Cardinal Santoni (Fernando Rey), the secretary to the elderly but powerful Pope (Leonardo Cimino), learns of Flaherty's business deals, but covers for Flaherty in order for them to rise in the ranks of the church against Santoni's rival, Cardinal Vinci (Adolfo Celi). But Flaherty's double life as a black marketeer and priest takes a turn when he falls in love with a young French nun, named Clara (Genevieve Bujold), who knows of his dealings, but not of his true identity to the Catholic Church."

Directed by Spielberg...

From Wikipedia:

"In the first and most successful film (released on June 4 1982), a group of seemingly benign ghosts begin communicating with five-year-old Carol Anne Freeling in her parents' suburban California home via static on the television. Eventually they use the TV as their path into the house itself. They kidnap Carol Anne, and most of the film involves the family's efforts to rescue her. Eventually they do, but then the spirits, led by a demon known only as The Beast, go on a rampage."

"T" is That Championship Season
« Reply #719 on: October 27, 2007, 06:31:09 pm »
Adapted from Jason Miller's play which won the Pulitzer Prize, That Championship Season is about a group of men who, after 25 years, get together again for a high-school basketball team reunion. After drinking and chumming, the circle of friends soon find long-hidden anger and resentment resurfacing which become muddled with their current mid-life problems. Soon their long-time friendships are collapsing before them.

Excellent performers in this drama include Martin Sheen, Paul Sorvino, Robert Mitchum, Bruce Dern and Stacy Keach.
