Oscar nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (I ve Loved You So Long, Four Weddings and a Funeral) delivers another acclaimed performance in the passionate drama Leaving. When stay-at-home mom Suzanne wants to return to work, her husband agrees to remodel a garage to serve as her office. Ivan, a sexy Spanish builder, enters their lives and changes them in ways no one could have expected.
Suzanne and Ivan are irresistibly drawn together by an erotic passion that threatens to destroy her marriage, her family and everything she holds dear. Her husband will stop at nothing to destroy her first. In this thrilling romance, everyone pays a price for happiness. Kristin Scott Thomas has transformed from the ice queen of British cinema to a woman of torrid passions in French films--and Leaving may be the most torrid yet. Suzanne (Thomas) leads a pleasant but stale upper middle-class life, with two teenage children (demanding and unappreciative, as all teenagers are) and a slightly pushy husband, Samuel (Yvan Attal, My Wife Is an Actress). She has a fling with a Spanish handyman named Ivan (Sergi LÃ³pez, Pan's Labyrinth) that, to her surprise, turns into an overwhelming passion. She can't bear to be without Ivan and decides to leave Samuelâ€¦ a decision that slowly disintegrates her life. The strength of Leaving lies not in the plot, which holds no radical surprises, but in the vitality of Thomas's performance (particularly striking is a scene in which Suzanne, playfully bantering with Ivan, suddenly discovers she's in deeper emotional waters than she knew) and the cool eye writer-director Catherine Corsini casts over the events. The movie lures you into sympathy with Suzanne, yet there's always something a little unnerving about her, the sense that her mad love might have more madness than love. Thomas's career in France (including Tell No One and I've Loved You So Long) has given this superb actress a new life. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description The third installment to this fun series is comprised of smaller shorts, each with its own story and lovely lads of course. In "Love Me Even If You Don't," a hot muscular gay farm boy (Bryan Wilde) who has spent years entertaining straight boys is getting tired of this dead end routine and realizes that what he really needs is a different thing completely. He zeroes in on a blond fair skin neighbor with a 10" dick (Newcomer Mike Austin) to quench his love thirst. He will be ready to pay Mike's rent for a whole two months if that stud can pretend to be his lover for one day only (not just sex the whole emotional "husband" Enchilada.) The soft-core erotic session that follows is one of the most riveting Toby has ever filmed, it includes a hammock milking session, camping in a tent and much more.

Award-winning British filmmaker Isaac Julien`s LOOKING FOR LANGSTON is both critically acclaimed and controversial. The film is a lyrical and poetic consideration of the life of revered Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes. Isaac Julien invokes Hughes as a black gay cultural icon, against an impressionistic, atmospheric setting that parallels a Harlem speakeasy of the 1920s with a 1980s London underground nightclub. Extracts from Hughes poetry are interwoven with the work of cultural figures from the 1920s and beyond, including Essex Humphill, Bruce Nugent, and Robert Mapplethorpe, constructing a lyrical and multilayered narrative. Julien explores the ambiguous sexual subtexts of the period of rich artistic expression, and the enduring cultural significance of the pioneer s work. Shot in sumptuous monochrome, the film combines archival footage with the newly staged set pieces, fantasy sequences, and an imagined love story. The result is a beautiful and ultimately celebratory piece about artistic expression and the nature of desire.
