Overview

Synopsis

Too Young to Die?
Another "based on fact" TV movie, Too Young to Die? stars Juliette Lewis as a benighted teenaged girl. She is married at 14, is deserted, and begins walking the streets at 15. Abused by virtually every man with whom she comes in contact (including her own father), Lewis commits murder--and finds herself on Death Row before reaching her 16th birthday. Michael Tucker is the attorney who pleads that his client not be tried as an adult. Despite all the horrendous wrongs piled upon Juliette Lewis in Too Young to Die?, her character fails to elicit audience sympathy. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Dark Side of the Sun
A youthful Brad Pitt stars in this drama about a man looking for the cure to a rare skin disease who discovers love on the way. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Personal Effects
Ashton Kutcher stars as a broken man who sets off on a vengeance-filled search for his sister's murderer, only to fall into the arms of a gorgeous older woman (Michelle Pfeiffer) who may share the same torment in this romantic drama from Insight Studios. TV veteran David Hollander directs from his own script. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

Leading Man
This light romantic comedy follows the amorous backstage shenanigans of the cast and crew as they prepare to stage "The Hit Man," noted playwright Felix Webb's latest play. The trouble begins when director Humphrey Beal hires Felix's extramarital lover Hilary Rule as his leading lady. Working in such close proximity does nothing to help an already tense relationship made more shaky by Hilary's insistence that Felix leave his insecure wife Elena. When Humphrey hires hot, young movie star Robin Grange to play opposite Hilary, matters really heat up, especially after the handsome and perceptive young stud offers to seduce Elena so that Felix can have grounds to dump her. Unfortunately for Felix, this dreamy solution soon turns to a nightmare when Robin proves too irresistible. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

An Unfinished Affair
In this drama, a husband's moment of indiscretion has nearly catastrophic consequences when his mistress refuses to accept that their affair is over. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Awaken
A lonely man meets a woman who captures his heart, and discovers their love has the power to transcend death in this romantic drama with a supernatural twist. When Alex (Corey Sevier) meets Rachel (Jordan Ladd), he knows she's the love of his life. But shyness prevents him from asking her out. Shortly thereafter, Alex learns that Rachel has been killed in a car accident. Deeply despondent, he drifts off to sleep and finds himself face to face with her. Now every time Alex closes his eyes, Rachel is there waiting for him, and together in the world of dreams they experience a magical love that reaches into the immortal realms. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Windrider
This is a youth-oriented romantic drama about the relationship of a champion surfer and a rock singer. Enhanced by impressive sequences of surfboard derring-do and the exotic scenery of western Australia (as well as the first adult role for Nicole Kidman), this film has plenty to keep young audiences entertained. P.C. Simpson (Tom Burlinson) lives in a magnificent beachfront home with his wealthy father and indulges his passion for surfing on a daily basis. His father may fault him for not working at a regular job, but he can appreciate his son's remarkable abilities on the waves. Jade (Kidman) is a rock singer who starts an romance with the surfer, but just as it seems his life could not get better, several setbacks occur that threaten a wipeout. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Who Loves the Sun
When the former best friend of a now-successful writer suddenly appears following an extended absence, the confrontation that follows will alter their views of the past and forever transform the future in a simmering tale of lost friendship from director Matt Bissonnette. It's been five long years since Daniel Bloom (Adam Scott) has heard from his longtime friend Will Morrison (Lukas Haas). After growing up together and even seeing Daniel serve as best man at Will's wedding to the beautiful Maggie (Molly Parker), no one would have suspected that the pair would part ways on such awkward terms. Now, after half a decade away, Will has suddenly appeared on the doorstep of Mary (Wendy Crewson) and Arthur's (R.H. Thompson) remote island cottage. Subsequently summoned back to his childhood haunt by a concerned phone call from his mother, Daniel departs from New York to finally find what became of the long-missing Will. But quite a bit has changed since those innocent days of youth, and just as the harsh words exchanged between the pair suddenly erupt into physical violence, Mary receives word that Maggie is waiting to be picked up at the local dock. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
