It is a combination of a football game

Good

(2008)
Available for the first time on digital platforms on August 27th from MPI Media Group

Based on the acclaimed play by CP Taylor, Good tells the story of an honest man facing a crisis of conscience in the most dishonest of times.

1930s Germany.  Literature professor John Halder (Viggo Mortensen) channels his personal troubles into a novel that advocates compassionate euthanasia. When the book is unexpectedly enlisted by powerful political figures in support of government propaganda, Halder finds his career rising in an optimistic current of nationalism and prosperity. But the changes in Halder’s fortunes correspond to an increasingly turbulent change in the political and social climate, and soon he finds himself confronted with the devastating effects of his seemingly inconsequential actions.

Co-starring Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter), Jodie Whitaker (Doctor Who) and Mark Strong (Kingsman), Good is a timeless tale of the importance of virtue.

 

 

The Six Wives of Henry LeFay

(2009)
Available for the first time on digital platforms on August 27th from MPI Media Group

Following the unexpected death of her father Henry LeFay (Tim Allen), straight-laced daughter Barbara (Elisha Cuthbert) reluctantly returns to her familial roots in order to sort out her carefree dad’s many, many messy affairs. What starts as a dignified funeral quickly descends into chaos as Henry’s six former wives come out of the woodwork, each laying claim to various parts of the man who they all adored and reviled in equal measure. Heated jealousies, petty conflicts, and outright warfare are just some of the trials Barbara must endure as she tries to keep things in order, all while six very different women threaten to derail the proceedings. But as she discovers more about each of her dad’s uniquely spirited wives, a greater picture of the man she refused to accept begins to take shape.

Equal parts hilarious and heartfelt, The Six Wives of Henry LeFay features standout performances from an array of talent, including Andie MacDowell, Jenna Elfman, Chris Klein, and Paz Vega.
