Bent
Pursued and captured by the Nazis because he is gay, Max is placed in a concentration camp where he pretends to be Jewish to avoid even worse persecution. There he meets another gay prisoner and learns a life-altering lesson about human love. Renowned British stage director Sean Mathias directs Martin Sherman's "powerful and provocative" screenplay about one man's struggle to maintain his dignity while imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp. Featuring exceptional performances by Lothaire Bluteau, Clive Owen, Brian Webber, Ian McKellen, and Mick Jaggar, Bent will "grab filmgoers by the heart" (Rex Reed)! Max is a handsome young man who, after a fateful tryst with a German soldier, is forced to run for his life. Pursued and captured, Max is placed in a concentration camp where he pretends to be Jewish, because in the eyes of the Nazis, gays are the lowest form of a human being. But it takes a forbidden relationship with an openly gay prisoner to teach Max that without the love of another, life is not worth living.--

Mrs. Henderson presents
Recently widowed and well-to-do Laura Henderson needs a diversion to see her through war torn London. On a whim she buys the derelict Windmill theatre in the West End and persuades impresario Vivian Van Damm to run it. The two don't seem to get along at all. Although their idea of a non-stop revue is at first a success, other theatres begin to copy the idea and disaster looms. Laura suggests they put nudes in the show, but Van Damm points out that the Lord Chamberlain, who licenses live shows in Britain, is likely to have something to say about this. Luckily for Laura, she is friends with him.
