Synopsis

Tom Cruise triple bill. In 'Vanilla Sky' (2001), David Aames (Cruise) is a vain middle-aged playboy who seems to have it all - he's inherited a multi-million dollar publishing firm from his father and his good looks and charm attract women to him like moths to a lightbulb. Though sleeping occasionally with his friend Julie (Cameron Diaz), when introduced to Sofia (Penelope Cruz) by a mutual friend suddenly David is touched by the possibility of real love. Excited by the meeting they arrange to meet again, but when Julie discovers the betrayal obsession rears its ugly head, and she decides to drive herself and David off a cliff. She dies and he survives but his face is hideously scarred by the accident. Despite his emotional and physical damage David and Sofia begin a relationship. But all is not as it seems... Sydney Pollack directs 'The Firm' (1993), based on John Grisham's first novel. Hotshot Harvard law graduate Mitch McDeere (Cruise) is headhunted and enrolled by a small firm of lawyers based away from New York City, offering him a large pay package. When the FBI tell Mitch that the firm is a front for the illegal activities of the Mob, he investigates further - endangering himself and his wife (Jeanne Tripplehorn). 'Mission Impossible 2' (2000) is the sequel to the hugely successful 1996 spin-off of the popular Sixties espionage series. Impossible Missions Force's Ethan Hunt (Cruise) is charged with tracking down renegade fellow agent Sean Ambrose (Dougray Scott), who has stolen the only known supply of Bellophron - the antidote to man-made virus Chimera. Ethan enlists the help of Ambrose's ex-girlfriend, Nyah Nordoff-Hall (Thandie Newton), and although the pair have fallen in love, Nyah agrees to return to Ambrose in order to gain information. However, Ambrose now intends to trigger off an epidemic of Chimera in order to sell Bellophron to the highest bidder, and when he becomes suspicious of Nyah decides to use her as a guinea pig.
