Starring Golden Globe Winner America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) in her most dramatic and powerful role to date and winner of Best International Film at the Edinburgh Film Festival. James (Ryan O’Nan) returns from Iraq to face a new battle—reintegrating into his small-town life in Texas. His wife (America Ferrera), his mother, and his friend provide support, but they can’t fully understand the pain and suffering he feels since his tour of duty ended. Lonely, James reconnects with an army buddy, who provides him with compassion and camaraderie during his battle to process his experiences in Iraq. But their reunion also exposes the different ways that war affects people—at least on the surface. The Dry Land is about one man’s fight within his own terrain—his country, home, and mind—and his journey to rebuild what he’s lost. Featuring an all-star cast including Academy Award Winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Ethan Suplee (My Name Is Earl), Jason Ritter (The Event), Wilmer Valdorrama (That 70's Show)
Mia is a contract killer with a big secret: she's a pre-op transsexual (transgender woman). Her life is sent into a tailspin when she receives a letter from her ex, Wendy, who reveals that she's dying from cancer and that Mia has a son, eleven year old Ryan. Travelling to the countryside to meet him, she discovers the rest of the Wendy's children. A lethal killer at the heart of a troubled family can only change their lives forever. Academy Award nominated and Golden Globe winning actress Chloe Sevigny (Boys Don't Cry, Big Love) plays Mia. Peter Wright (Another Year, Hot Fuzz) is Eddie, her handler and a well-known name in the criminal underworld. Ben, a local landscape gardener who falls for Mia, unaware of her transgender status, is played by Jonas Armstrong (Robin Hood, The Street). Vincent Regan (300, Clash Of The Titans) is John, a dangerous local farmer. Created by Emmy and BAFTA award-winning Paul Abbott (Shameless, State of Play) written by Sean Conway (Brilliant Love, Kings Of London) and directed by Hettie Macdonald (Beautiful Thing, White Girl) and Sheree Folkson (Ugly Betty, Casanova).

Not every ugly duckling becomes a swan.... In the wake of the disastrous attack on the Golden City, Lady Light Spinner has become Grand Sorceress and Elaine, the Bookworm, has been settling into her positions as Head Librarian and Privy Councillor. But any hope of vanishing into her books is negated when a new magician of staggering power appears in the city, one whose abilities seem to defy the known laws of magic. Johan is a Powerless, a person born to a magical family yet lacking powers of his own. His dreams of a better life are curbed by his family, who see him as a cripple at best and a burden at worst. But when a political protest goes horrifically wrong, Johan discovers that his true powers have merely been buried, waiting for their chance to explode into the world. As he comes to grips with his newfound talents, he discovers that he finally has a chance to realize his ambitions.... But for the Golden City, reeling after the devastation of six months earlier, he may be the greatest threat the city has ever seen. Elaine must unlock the mystery behind his powers before the political factions can kill him...or use him to unleash a nightmare. Returning to well-loved characters from Christopher Nuttall's best-selling Bookworm and introducing new ones, Bookworm II: The Very Ugly Duckling explores power - and the effect it has on the human mind. 1.
