Emma (1996) From Jane Austen’s classic novel, Gwyneth Paltrow shines as Emma- a mischievous young beauty who sets up her single friends. Funny thing is…she’s not very good at it! So when Emma tries to find a man for Harriet, she makes a hilariously tangled mess of everyone’s lives. You’ll enjoy all the coming confusion…until Emma herself falls in love, finally freeing everyone from her outrageously misguided attempts at matchmaking. The Piano (1993) Winner of three 1993 Oscars®, including Best Actress (Holly Hunter), THE PIANO arouses fiery passions and vengeful jealousies when Ada, a young mute woman (Hunter), is desired by two men – her husband by an arranged marriage (Sam Neill) and her darkly intense neighbor (Harvey Keitel). Violent emotions erupt, but only one man understands that Ada’s heart can only be won through her beloved piano. Fish & Cat (2013) A group of attractive young Iranian kite-flying enthusiasts gather at a dismal lake, near a restaurant where two sinister characters are serving up grisly fare. Beastly (2011)  Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer star in this modern day take on a classic fable in which a spoiled and shallow high school student, empowered by his own physical appearance, messes with the wrong classmate. He soon finds himself transformed into someone as unattractive on the outside as he is on the inside. Now, he has one year to find someone who can see past the surface and love him, or he will remain BEASTLY forever. His only hope could be an unassuming classmate he never noticed before, to prove that love is never ugly. Happy streaming! -Jessica, Head of Adult Services & Acquisitions
