When aspiring magazine writer SOPHIE MARCUS (Amanda Seyfried) and would‐be restauranteur VICTOR (Gael García Bernal) fly from New York to Italy for a vacation, the stage seems set for some much‐needed romance in their relationship—especially since their destination is the city of Verona, home of the star‐crossed lover Juliet Capulet of ROMEO AND JULIET fame.
Liv (Kate Hudson) and Emma (Anne Hathaway), best friends since childhood, are always there for each other, through good times and bad. Even their respective bridal engagements happen within hours. Together they plan their weddings, each to take place at New York’s ultimate bridal destination, the Plaza Hotel. But a clerical error and subsequent clash in wedding dates pits the two brides against each other in a competition that quickly escalates into all-out war. The romantic comedy was directed by Gary Winick (“13 Going on 30”, “Lipstick Jungle”).
In “Charlotte’s Web,” a very small pig finds that the most powerful force in the world is the bond of friendship. After young Fern (Dakota Fanning) rescues Wilbur the pig – who is almost sacrificed as the runt of the litter – he becomes the newest addition to the barnyard. Wilbur has a youthful manner that makes him seem naïve to the other animals in his new barn, but to Charlotte – the spider who lives in the rafters – he holds the possibility of being a friend. Their developing friendship is shown to be a lasting one when the other animals reveal that the pig’s days are numbered.
