Lovely & Amazing

The Marks family is a tightly-knit quartet of women. Jane is the affluent matriarch whose 3 daughters seem to have nothing in common except for a peculiar sort of idealism. Setting the tone of vanity and insecurity, Jane is undergoing cosmetic surgery to alter her figure, but serious complications put her health in real danger. Former homecoming queen Michelle, the eldest daughter, has one daughter of her own and an alienated, unsupportive husband. Elizabeth, the middle sister, has an acting career that is beginning to take off, but is timid and insecure, and habitually relieves her trepidation by taking in stray dogs. Only the youngest sister, Annie, an adopted African American 8-year-old, stands a chance of avoiding the family legacy of anxious self-absorption. If only her intelligence and curiosity will see her through what promises to be a confusing adolescence. Each of the women seeks redemption in her own haphazard way.

Ticker

A SWAT team goes into the house of a Senator. Someone is holding the Senator hostage. The bomb squad arrives in a helicopter and they rappel down into the house. Frank Glass is in charge of the bomb squad. Glass finds a bomb in the basement and works to disarm it while the SWAT team is in a shoot-out with some of the hostage takers. Glass gets the bomb disarmed, but he thinks it was too easy. Everyone is ordered out of the house. The elaborate bomb explodes. A year later, in San Francisco, two cops named Ray Nettles and Art “Fuzzy” Rice, are driving around talking. Nettles has had some problems on the job before. He and Fuzzy are vice cops and partners. Nettles is on the edge. His wife and son were killed by a bomb. Ever since then, he has lost his enthusiasm for his job, hygiene, and life in general. Fuzzy has been trying to cheer Nettles up, and talk out his demons. They stumble upon something suspicious and decide to investigate, and they end up in an apartment building busting some guy, then they end up at a warehouse. Nettles runs into a scientist named Claire Manning, and Fuzzy gets killed by Swann, the IRA-connected terrorist who bombed the Senator’s house. Nettles arrests Claire. She refuses to say anything about Swann. She was wearing a bracelet made up of some wires. Nettles takes it to the bomb squad, and Glass looks it over. The bracelet contained a very powerful explosive. Swann wants Claire back, more than anything. The police decide to hold Claire in an effort to find out what Swann is up to, which angers Swann. Swann makes a powerful bomb and calls in a threat to the police station. If Claire isn’t released within an hour, a bomb will go off somewhere in the city. Swann intends to continue setting off bombs until Claire is released. Swann and the men who are working with him are in the city for a big job. Nettles becomes obsessed with nailing Swann. Glass and the bomb squad are working on the case because bombs are involved. Nettles ends up working with Glass and the bomb squad. Together, they attempt to stop Swann, and they try figure out the motive for the big job that Swann is in town for, and how Claire is involved in it. It turns out that Claire is out for revenge — her husband was murdered after discovering plans to build an elementary school on a toxic waste dumping area. Claire blames the San Francisco city government for her husband’s murder, so she has enlisted Swann’s help to get revenge by blowing up city hall. That’s the big job that Swann is in town for. With the help of Glass, Nettles sets out to find and stop Swann.

Amy’s Orgasm

Amy is Jewish, nearing 30, single, and the successful author of “Why Love Doesn’t Work,” a self-help book for women who aren’t in love. She’s also a self-described sexorexic – she hasn’t had sex with a man in four years and has never had a “mental orgasm.” She gets plenty of advice – from her publicist, from her best friends (a married couple), from her parents, and from a priest to whom she goes to confession – so there’s lots of conflicting emotion and analysis when she starts dating Matthew Starr, a good-looking playboy who’s a popular L.A. male-chauvinist-pig radio shock jock. Each of Amy’s theories and rules is put to the test – people may not change, but can love work?

Mockingbird Don’t Sing

On November 4, 1970 on The CBS Evening News, Walter Cronkite reported on a true, horrific story that was about to rock the country. A 13-year-old girl was discovered in the small Los Angeles suburb of Arcadia who was still in diapers, barely able to walk and unable to speak. Kept in severe isolation by her parents with virtually no human contact for more than 10 years, she was confined to her bedroom, tied to her potty-chair and left to fend for herself. As Cronkite noted, it was one of the most horrendous cases of child abuse ever to surface. Much like an animal, the girl spat, sniffed and clawed. She had none of the traits or characteristics of conventional human behavior, nor could she comprehend such modern societal conveniences as silverware or bathroom etiquette. Her emotional development was practically non-existent, and she could not speak. With this heartbreaking story, the world was being introduced to a fragile, beautiful teenager who seemed and behaved like an infant, or Wild Child.
