Über 12 Jahre ist es her, als Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) zuletzt über die alltäglichen Probleme wie Männer, Zigaretten und den elenden Kampf gegen die Pfunde die Lachmuskeln des Publikums drangsalierte. Nun ist sie zurück und zu allem Überfluss auch noch schwanger und sie weiß nicht einmal von wem...
After a 12-year absence from the big screen, Oscar winners Rene Zellweger (Cold Mountain) and Colin Firth (The Kings Speech) reunite and are joined by Patrick Dempsey (TVs Greys Anatomy) for the next chapter of the worlds favorite, lovably flawed singleton in this charming, good-natured, and persistently endearing romantic comedy. The new film in the beloved comedy series based on creator Helen Fieldings heroine finds Bridget unexpectedly expecting. After breaking up with Mark Darcy (Firth), Bridget has decided to focus on her job and her friends and seems to have everything in control. However, her love life takes a turn when she meets dashing American Jack (Dempsey), and in an unlikely twist she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her babys father.
Gleißendes Glück’ ist eine mitreißende Adaption des gleichnamigen Romans der schottischen Schriftstellerin A.L. Kennedy aus dem Jahr 1997. Erzählt wird die ungewöhnliche Liebesgeschichte zwischen einer unglücklich verheirateten Frau (Martina Gedeck) und einem zwiespältigen Fernsehpsychologen (Ulrich Tukur).
Visually gorgeous and deliciously colorful, this modern take on the Hollywood musical from the Oscar-nominated writer/director of »Whiplash« follows dedicated jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling; »Drive«, »Nice Guys«) and aspiring actress Mia (Stone; »Birdman«, »Gangster Squad«) as they are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love in a city known for crushing hopes. But as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart. Nostalgic, celebratory, and utterly captivating, this deft blend of long-gone filmmaking style with decidedly modern sensibilities is a romantically fueled, comically fun, and symphonically sublime treasure.
