NOW AND THEN
1995, Warner Bros., 100 min, USA, Dir: Lesli Linka Glatter

During a pivotal 1970 summer, four friends (Gaby Hoffmann, Thora Birch, Christina Ricci and Ashleigh Aston Moore) make a pact to always be there for one another; 20 years later, as one is about to become a mother, they reunite and reminisce. Demi Moore, Melanie Griffith, Rosie O'Donnell and Rita Wilson play the girls as adults in this poignant coming-of-age tale, which features a great period soundtrack and the coolest treehouse since STAND BY ME.


THE ADDAMS FAMILY
1991, Paramount, 99 min, USA, Dir: Barry Sonnenfeld

Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia head up the macabre family of the title in this darkly hilarious adaptation of cartoonist Charles Addams' greatest works. A group of con artists sets out to take the Addams Family for all they're worth, but they get more than they bargained for when the family's magical powers take full effect. Christopher Lloyd and Christina Ricci costar.


MONSTER
2003, Newmarket Films, 109 min, Dir: Patty Jenkins

Charlize Theron is riveting in her Oscar-winning performance as one of America's first female serial killers, Aileen Wuornos. A highway prostitute in Florida, Wuornos suffers one too many degradations and ultimately snaps, killing her clients so that she can steal their money without offering up her own body. Christina Ricci co-stars as Selby, Wuornos' lover, who dissolves into a jittery, frightened mess during the course of the nine-month killing spree.
