There is a movie that I saw a couple years ago, it was about this troubled teenage girl who had curly bleach blonde hair - she dressed like a guy in school but one night she goes to a club type place and removes her hat so her hair comes down, her and her guy friends break into a jewelry store, and her boyfriend calls the cops on her.Taviaskyee
I am trying to identify a film. It's an animated film in Japanese or Chinese. The art style reminds me of Ghibli or Miyazaki. There's a girl standing on a bridge (next to another girl?) and she's looking down at some school-age boys her age playing in the water. They motion for her to come in, and she looks like she's going to jump in but then decides not to. Later there's a scene where that same girl (or another girl) takes shelter at what looks like an abandoned shrine in the woods (it might be raining). She hears some voices, and two spirits reminiscent of the ones in Spirited Away materialize next to her. Another spirit wearing a hoodie/cloak jumps onto her lap, and the girl screams and runs away.conquer987
I'm looking for a movie where a man's father drinks lots of alcohol. His father is a student of his mother. The mother is currently in jail. The man is going to marry a girl who is secretly cheating on him with her brother. The father learns about it, but they give him money to shut up. Eventually he wants to save his son and tells the truth at the wedding.
I'm looking for a movie where a blonde actress sings la boheme. She isn't a well known actress and the movie is similar to Raise Your Voice, but came out before. It takes place in a musically gifted school I believe, and the piece is performed at the end. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I've been looking for the name of this movie for years.Rherrera27
I'm looking for a film from the 50s or early 60s, Hollywood - a mother, father and daughter go on a cruise, the daughter has an affair and ends up pregnant. The family all go to live in South America during the pregnancy and then the mother claims the baby as her own (i.e., the real mother pretends she is the sister).
I am looking for a movie or mini series where a man was in Auschwitz, and after some time he managed to go to America (somewhere) and got married and had kids. He also built a house in a forest - mountain, and in the end his home caught fire - he told his family to run in the opposite direction from the fire but the wind changed and they all died. I think that the last scene was the man holding a shotgun pointed to his head, but in the end he just fired in the air. I think it was in the late eighties or early nineties. If you know the movie and tell me the name that would be awesome! Thank you.
I'm trying to find out what the name of this movie is I saw years ago. It's about a small town. I think they are close to the water because there is a scene where they are chased out onto a dock by the dogs. The movie is about these people in a small town that are being attacked by the dogs there. The dogs just start attacking them. Does anyone know what this movie is called?
In the early to mid 90's, my sister and I used to watch a movie all of the time and I cannot remember what it is called. I remember it starts out with a woman who is in jail who gets released and somehow ends up getting a job as a nanny for a little boy and a little girl. The siblings are obsessed with eating pizza. I think at one point during the movie the nanny tries to sell the kids to another couple who asked the kids to find a contact on the dad. Like an eye contact. I know it sounds weird but I just can't think of the name of the movie. Does this ring a bell for anybody?
I'm looking for a movie about a disease outbreak in a city and the husband goes to look for the wife but is not allowed in the city, so then he decided to take shelter in a house after a neighbor's gardener tells him it's safe. The wife eventually shows up and because she seems to be infected she goes outside and they talk, then the Feds show up. They get tested for the disease and it turns out he has it and she doesn't, so they kill him. I have searched Google and can not find it.Yupthatcrazychick
When I was younger I saw a movie about a teacher and her students who were abducted by three men wearing masks. The leader wore a Santa Claus mask. The teacher and her students manage to flee from the men but end up getting chased by all three. The only thing I'm sure of, is that it did not have Christopher Lambert in it. Does anyone know the name of this movie?
I saw a movie early last year on Netflix where a blonde woman moves into a trailer park and it's a little weird. She witnesses two people having sex through a window in one of the trailers and the other thing I remember is she was later chased up a concrete structure of some sort. It was a pretty good movie and I'd like to see it again.
I'm trying to remember a movie that I saw on TV years ago. It tells the story of a rich man (a lawyer I think), who is married to a much younger woman. The movie starts with the woman's birthday, her husband offers her a yacht as a present for her birthday. Later on, it appears that the woman has a lover and she plans along with her lover to kill her husband.Yasabdo
I can't remember the name of a movie. It's about a young girl losing her older sister because her older sister goes to Europe where she joins some kind of movement. She disappears/dies and years later when the little sister is old enough she travels to Europe where she meets up with her sister's ex (and I think they get involved) and follows her older sister's footsteps, possibly by letters she's received from her sister, trying to figure out what happened to her. There's this one scene from the movie I specifically remember. It's a scene where the little sister has been given a stamp with LSD on it and she walks about town and when she looks in a shop mirror, she hallucinates seeing her sister's reflection.Tanja EgestrÃ¸m Jensen
I'm looking for a film from the late 80's early 90's. It was an American film about a young girl who was abducted and murdered I think by her male school teacher or neighbour. When the man is eventually charged and found guilty of the child's murder in court, the girl's mother shoots him in the courtroom.
I started watching a movie the other night, but fell asleep midway through and have no idea what the title of the movie was about. There were two women in a female prison/jail and they were in the gym talking. A few minutes later a guy walks in. He was either doing construction work there or was a janitor/maintenance worker. Him and one of the girls have sex behind the bleachers and he leaves. But he falls in love with her and marries her when she gets out of prison/jail. Anyone?
