Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan
Shipwrecked on the coast of Africa and orphaned as an infant, young Lord Greystoke is taken in by a troop of apes, renamed “Tarzan,” and raised as their own. Years later, grown-up Tarzan encounters a group of European hunters and rescues one of them from a terrible death. Brought back to England, Tarzan is introduced to society, where his crude, apelike manners offend many, and his greedy relatives plot to prevent him from receiving his aristocratic inheritance. But does Tarzan really want to embrace his birthright ... or would he and his new love Jane (Andie McDowell) prefer life in the jungle? Based on the 1912 novel Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs. (1984 - Rated PG - 129 min)

One Amazing Thing
by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
When an earthquake hits, nine men and women of diverse ages and backgrounds are trapped in the Indian consulate in an unnamed American city. Cameron, an African American Vietnam vet, takes charge, striving to keep them safe.
