Andre 'Large' Largeman (Braff) is an out-of-work actor, originally from New Jersey but now living in Los Angeles, where he continues to struggle to come to terms with his overbearing psychiatrist father (Ian Holm) despite the 3000 miles that separate them. Having recently come off the anti-depressants that have kept him emotionally numbed for years, he is doubly stunned to find himself back in his hometown after receiving news of his mother's death. The process of confronting his emotional demons and reconnecting with the past is somewhat eased by a chance meeting with Sam (Natalie Portman), a happy-go-lucky young woman who at first appears to be all that Large is not, but helps him open up to the possibilities - and positivities - of life.
Love and Other Impossible Pursuits
Emilia (Natalie Portman) and her husband John (Scott Cohen) struggle to keep their lives together after the unexpected SIDS death of their 3-day old daughter Isabel.
Complicating the situation is John’s son Jack (Charlie Tahan) who primarily lives with his mother Carolyne (Lisa Kudrow), a doctor. Emilia has the responsibility of collecting Jack from his school where she encounters snide glances and whispers from some other mothers - Emilia and John’s relationship began as an office affair whilst he was still married. Worse still, as hard as she tries to be a good step-parent to the boy, her efforts are hindered by the fact that Jack serves as his mother’s mouthpiece, and at times speaks in a very off-hand and cruel way about Isabel’s death.
Captain Sam Cahill (TOBEY MAGUIRE) is embarking on his fourth tour of duty, leaving behind his beloved wife (NATALIE PORTMAN) and two daughters. When Sam’s Blackhawk helicopter is shot down in the mountains of Afghanistan, the worst is presumed, leaving an enormous void in the family. Despite a dark history, Sam’s charismatic younger brother Tommy (JAKE GYLLENHAAL) steps in to fill that void.
An all-star cast sparks this captivating comedy about a group of old friends whose 10-year high school reunion creates some hilariously unexpected surprises. Willie (Timothy Hutton) Tommy (Matt Dillon) and Paul (Michael Rapaport) may have lost a bit of their youth but they're still ready to party with Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction) Rosie O'Donnell, Lauren Holly (What Women Want) and Mira Sorvino (Summer Of Sam) - the "beautiful girls" who've turned their world upside down! Also featuring a hot soundtrack BEAUTIFUL GIRLS is a must-see comic delight that's sure to entertain you!
