Inventor’s Fortune Up For Grabs is the true story told from two perspectives - that of John Pfarr, the attorney who negotiated a $1.8 million settlement, and Suzanne Beyer an heir to her great uncle Art Hadley’s fortune. The book recounts complex interactions of family, outrage over “manufactured” heirs, and brilliant legal strategies leading to a settlement. Co-author John Pfarr, a Connecticut trust and estate lawyer, recounts the legal struggles, from the trial court, mediation, and scuttled opportunities to settle, to the Rhode Island Supreme Court and beyond. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is classic Woody Allen — an ensemble cast of brilliant actors, a timeless story that could be set virtually anywhere and crisp writing and direction that neither lollygags or rushes. As with most recent Woody films, there is no Woody character here, in other words a central neurotic male role that he would have played when younger. And as with most recent films, it's a bit hard to tell where the comedy ends and the drama begins; they're swirled together throughout. If you like Woody, this is a must-see. Rated R.

Suddenly, the fate of Metro City is threatened when a new villain arrives and chaos runs rampant, leaving everyone to wonder: Can the world's biggest "mind" actually be the one to save the day? Rated PG.

Pat Tillman gave up his multimillion-dollar NFL career to join the military and fight in Afghanistan, only to be killed in unclear circumstances. His death was seized upon by the Bush administration as a testimony to patriotism--so it was a jolt to Tillman's family when the official story was discredited and a harsher truth revealed. Most families, stunned by grief, would have let this go. The Tillman family didn't. The Tillman Story follows this dogged, determined, outspoken family as they fight to uncover what really happened and who was responsible for their son being twisted from a thoughtful young man to a one-dimensional political icon. Rated R.
