COLD HEAVEN
1992, Park Circus/MGM, 105 min, USA, Dir: Nicolas Roeg

Theresa Russell stars as Marie Davenport, a lapsed Catholic unhappily married to a physician (Mark Harmon). The couple go to Acapulco, where Marie plans to announce she’s leaving for another man - but before she gets the chance, her husband is run over by a speedboat. When Dr. Davenport’s body later disappears from a hospital autopsy slab, the apparent resurrection challenges everything Marie believes. Co-starring James Russo, Talia Shire and Seymour Cassel, this haunting drama will hold viewers in thrall up to its final twist.


SUMMER SCHOOL
1987, Paramount, 97 min, USA, Dir: Carl Reiner

Director Carl Reiner gives John Hughes a run for his money with one of the funniest teen comedies of the 1980s. High-school gym teacher Freddy Shoop (Mark Harmon) is looking forward to vacation - until he’s forced to teach a remedial English class during summer school. Among the underachievers in his charge are Courtney Thorne-Smith, Patrick Labyorteaux and Kelly Jo Minter. Kirstie Alley is the history teacher next door who catches Shoop’s eye. Music by Danny Elfman.
