Madonna doesn't try to steal the show and consequently this turns out to be an excellent film. In 1943, with the males away fighting, The All American Girls' Professional Baseball League was formed to keep the National Baseball League running. Hanks is the real star as the cynical manager/coach who learns to love his team. A comic and touching story highlighting many of the contradictions that working women face. High slush factor. find out more...

Wisteria Lane is a pretty, affluent cul-de-sac nestled away in a corner of American suburbia. Quietly innocuous you would think, but behind these closed doors and twitching curtains lies a neighbourhood seething with insecurities, adultery, lust, loathing, bigotry and even murder... welcome to the world of the 'Desperate Housewives'. Sharply scripted, witty, well cast and deliciously implausible this hugely successful series is insidiously addictive... you have been warned. find out more...
