Maze

Based on the true story of the biggest jail break in Europe since World War II, Maze is a thriller that follows the relationship between two men on opposite sides of the prison bars. The film charts how inmate Larry Marley (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) becomes chief architect of this daring escape, which freed 38 Northern Ireland Republican political prisoners. Standing in his way is HM Prison Maze, one of the most state-of-the-art and secure prisons in the world – a prison within a prison – comprised of a labyrinth of H-shaped buildings encased in even higher concrete walls. While attempting to pull off this unimaginable feat, Larry comes into close contact with prison warder Gordon Close (Barry Ward). Although based on deception and manipulation, the trust that these two men develop becomes symbolic of the peace process that eventually resolves the Northern Ireland conflict.

Cruel Intentions

Kathryn (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Sebastian (Ryan Phillippe), two wealthy, manipulative teenage step-siblings from Manhattan's upper-crust, conspire in Cruel Intentions, a wickedly entertaining tale of seduction and betrayal. The stakes are high when the duo agrees upon a deliciously diabolical wager of sexual conquest without consequences. The pawns? The naïve Cecile Caldwell (Selma Blair) and the virginal Annette Hargrove (Reese Witherspoon).

It's summer break, and Kathryn has been dumped by her beau, Court Reynolds, for the innocent Cecile. Desperate to get even, Kathryn challenges Sebastian to ruin Cecile by deflowering her and turning her into a tramp-thus humiliating Court by delivering Cecile to him as damaged goods. Sebastian has pretty much 'had' all of the girls in New York City up to this point, and he's gotten a bit bored of it all. Though this is too easy a conquest for him, he obliges. He sets his sights on a greater challenge-the new headmaster's daughter, Annette, who recently wrote an article in a magazine about how she intends to stay pure until she marries her boyfriend. Sebastian bets Kathryn that he can seduce the chaste and pristine Annette before school begins in the fall. Kathryn thinks this feat impossible and quickly agrees to the wager. The stakes: if Sebastian succeeds, Kathryn must give him a night of unbridled biblical pleasure, something he's wanted since their parents got married. If he fails, he must forfeit his priceless 1956 Jaguar to Kathryn and suffer the shame of defeat.
