Described as This is Spinal Tap meets Calendar Girls, the film follows the fortunes of an avant-garde Morris team in their struggle to push the boundaries of the venerable, ancient dance. Set around the country pub The Travellers Staff, the docu-style comedy proves that Morris is not just an innocent pub pastime involving hanky-waving and bearded men with staffs, but also that it has its politics-laden, ultra-competitive side too.

The Millsham Morris men and their leader Derecq Twist are determined to achieve Morris perfection. But Derecq is also preparing to set the Morris world alight by performing the ultimate dance within the Morris firmament, the legendary Threeple Hammer Damson. As if this is not enough, he is in addition pioneering an innovative, daringly freeform brand of the dance dubbed “Extreme Morris,” drawing the anger of traditionalist elements within the Morris community. When Millsham unveil their creation in competition, the Morris Circle – the governing body of Morris in the UK - bans Derecq from future competition. Totally devastated by the decision, Derecq embarks on a global odyssey through tragedy and triumph, which gravely tests his passion for Morris.

    Miele narra la storia di Irene, una ragazza di trent'anni che ha deciso di aiutare le persone che soffrono: malati terminali che vogliono abbreviare l'agonia, persone le cui sofferenze intaccano la dignità di essere umano. Un giorno a richiedere il suo servizio è un settantenne in buona salute, che ritiene semplicemente di aver vissuto abbastanza. L'incontro metterà in discussione le convinzioni di Irene e la coinvolgerà in un dialogo serrato lungo il quale la relazione tra i due sembrerà infittirsi di sottintesi e ambiguità affettive.

    Er ist exzentrisch, genial, scharfzüngig – doch nicht unbesiegbar. Das muss Tony Stark alias Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) erkennen, als er sich einem Gegner gegenübersieht, der keine Grenzen kennt. Nachdem dieser ihm all das, was Stark am Herzen liegt, genommen hat, begibt sich der geschlagene Held auf die leidvolle Suche den zu finden, der dafür verantwortlich ist – eine Reise, die seinen Mut und seine Standhaftigkeit auf eine harte Probe stellen wird. Mit dem Rücken zur Wand kann sich Stark auf seiner Mission nur noch auf seine eigenen Instrumente, seinen Scharfsinn und seine Instinkte verlassen um jene zu schützen, die ihm am wichtigsten sind. Während er sich langsam wieder zu alter Form zurückkämpft, findet Stark die Antwort auf die Frage, die ihn insgeheim schon lange verfolgt: Macht der Mann den Anzug oder macht der Anzug den Mann?
