Princess Kaiulani



In 1888, Hawai'i is a paradise on the brink of civil unrest under the malevolent influence of a rebel party with links to the American government.

The tide has turned against the long-incumbent royal family, among whom is the beautiful Princess Ka'iulani. Scarcely 13 years old, she is separated from her family and homeland and sent to a place that couldn’t be more different from Hawai'i - Victorian England. Coming to terms with her fate, Ka'iulani undergoes a harsh education that equips her with a sense of duty and honor. What's more, she falls in love with a spirited young Englishman.

Emerging from childhood and inspired by blossoming romance, Ka'iulani realizes she must end the injustices suffered by her people. She sets off to meet President Grover Cleveland to prove that she and her people are not the "barbarians" portrayed by the American press.

Based on the true story, Princess Kaiulani is an inspiring romance about an unlikely heroine and her unwavering fight to defend the independence of her people.

Robin Hood



Oscar winner Russell Crowe stars as the legendary figure known by generations as "Robin Hood," whose exploits have endured in popular mythology and ignited the imagination of those who share his spirit of adventure and righteousness.

In 13th century England, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and lead an uprising against the crown that will forever alter the balance of world power. And whether thief or hero, one man from humble beginnings will become an eternal symbol of freedom for his people.

The untitled Robin Hood adventure chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard's army against the French. Upon Richard's death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marion, a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff.


With their country weakened from decades of war, embattled from the ineffective rule of the new king and vulnerable to insurgencies
from within and threats from afar, Robin and his men heed a call to ever greater adventure. This unlikeliest of heroes and his allies set off to protect their country from slipping into bloody civil war and return glory to England once more.

Starring Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, William Hurt, Matthew Macfadyen, Mark Strong, Mark Addy, Oscar Isaac, Léa Seydoux, Scott Grimes, Kevin Durand, Alan Doyle, Danny Huston, Max von Sydow

Directed by Ridley Scott

DeadFall Trail and Princess Kaiulani look like they might be worth a look when they come out on DVD.
