Off the coast of mid-1960s New England, on the small island of New Penzance, a secret year-long correspondence between the twelve-year-old outcasts–Suzy, the most beautiful raven in Noah’s arc, and Sam, the most unpopular troop in Khaki Scout camp–paves the way for a marvelous romance and a bold act of defiance.

Against the backdrop of an imminent violent tempest, the two runaway lovers set out to discover love, independence, and happiness, as a formidable posse of anxious parents and dead-serious officials leave no stone unturned in search of the missing kids.

6. Rudy


Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger doesn’t want to follow his father and brother to the local steel mill when he graduates. He wants what he’s wanted since he was a little boy: to play football for Notre Dame. Nothing — not weak grades, not his small size or lack of athletic ability, not even his relatives’ and teachers’ conviction that he’ll never make it — is going to deter him.

The path to realizing his dream is littered with seemingly endless obstacles and naysayers. But a kindly priest at Notre Dame gets him into a neighboring junior college, a Notre Dame student named D-Bob helps him improve his grades, and a hard-edged groundskeeper gives him a job (and a bed) in the football stadium. With their help and his own uncrushable will, Rudy gets closer to achieving his dream.

Harold Meyerowitz, the patriarch of The Meyerowitz Stories (New And Selected), is a sculptor who never met with the artistic or financial success he believed he deserved. The fact that he taught at a fine university for more than three decades doesn’t save his wounded ego.

His three children from various marriages, Danny, Jean, and Matthew, are still struggling with the effects of Harold’s parenting, as well as his arrogance, rage, and jealousy of old friends. Structured as “chapters” in the film, the action shows the family meeting in New York City and its environs over a period of several months.
