This week on the new book truck

Baby Mama
This is an odd-couple comedy starring Tina Fey as a successful businesswoman who decides that the time is right for having a baby. Because she is unable to conceive she hires another woman as a surrogate. The hilarity begins when the surrogate shows up at her door with nowhere to live.

1840s Cranford, a small Cheshire village is on the cusp of change in this Masterpiece Theatre drama. Stars Judi Dench and Francesca Annis.

The Forbidden Kingdom
An American teenager travels back to ancient China to free the ancient Monkey King. With Jet Li and Jackie Chan together we should see some spectacular martial arts!

O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Ok, this isn’t a new movie. We haven’t had the DVD in the library for awhile though so we’ll just say it’s kind of new to us. This is the Coen brothers version of the Odyssey taking place in 1930s Mississippi. It’s an oldie but a goodie.

Playwright David Mamet wrote and directed this film about a jujitsu teacher who doesn’t want to do professional fighting despite pressure from his family.

10,000 B.C.
This film is a prehistoric epic about a young mammoth hunter’s journey through uncharted territory to secure the future of his tribe. An adventure romance directed by Roland Emmerich.
