Now showing at Crossroads Cinema THE BROTHERS GRIMM Cast: Matt Damon, Heath Ledger, Monica Belluci “The Brothers Grimm” stars Matt Damon and Heath Ledger as Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm, the legendary brothers who gave us our favorite fairy tales. The film follows them on an enchanted adventure set in a world of heroes and villians. Now the Brothers Grimm are about to confront all that their imaginations brought to life, as they are caught in an epic battle between fantasy and reality. Rated PG-13 (for violence, frightening sequences and brief suggestive material)THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN Cast: Steve Carell, Catherine Keener, Paul Rudd Forty-year-old Andy Stizer (Steve Carell) has done quite a few things in his life. He’s got a cushy job stamping invoices at an electronics superstore, a nice apartment with a proud collection of action figures and comic books, good friends, a nice attitude. But there’s just one thing he hasn’t quite gotten around to doing yet – something most people have done by his age. Andy’s never, ever, ever had sex. So is that such a big deal? Well, for Andy’s buds at the store, it sure is. Although they think he’s a bit of an oddball, there’s certainly a planet full of stranger (and homelier) guys who’ve at least had one go at having a go. They consider it their duty to help Andy. But nothing proves effective enough to lure their friend out of lifelong chastity until he meets Trich (Catherine Keener), a 40-year-old mother of three.

Tessa’s companion, a doctor, appears to have fled the scene, and the evidence points to a crime of passion. Members of the British High Commission in Nairobi assume that Tessa’s widower, their mild-mannered and unambitious colleague Justin Quale Rralph Fiennes), will leave the matter to them. They could not be more wrong. Haunted by remorse and jarred by rumors of his late wife’s infidelities, Quayle surprises everyone by embarking on a personal odyssey that will take him across three continents. Using his privileged access to diplomatic secrets, he will risk his own life, stopping at nothing to uncover and expose the truth — a conspiracy more far-reaching and deadly than Quale could ever have imagined.
