In 1966 Spain, English teacher Antonio (Javier Camara) is travelling to Almeria in the hope of meeting John Lennon and getting his permission to use The Beatles' lyrics in his teaching materials. Along the way, he picks up two young hitchhikers - pregnant Belen (Natalia de Molina) and wary runaway Joanjo (Francesc Colomer). As the journey unfolds, each begins to realise that they can learn a lot from other people - beginning with each other. A warm and touching road movie that won six Goyas (Spain's Oscars). Incidentally, the title is a lyric from Strawberry Fields Forever.

However, he spots their latent talent as runners and sets about building up a cross-country team that can compete at state level. Solid cross-cultural triumph-over-adversity tale with a strong turn from Costner as the firm-but-fair inspiration.

Ron Howard's Oscar-winning drama stars Russell Crowe as John Nash, the mathematician who earned a Nobel Prize despite suffering from paranoid schizophrenia.

Jennifer Connelly was named Best Supporting Actress for her strong yet sympathetic portrayal of Nash's wife, Howard claimed Best Director and the film was anointed Best Picture. Screenwriter Akiva Goldman picked up the movie's fourth Academy Award.

It's 1964, and disillusioned youth Jimmy (Phil Daniels) finds an outlet for his angst in the booming Mod movement. But as part of the moped-riding, Parka-wearing, trouble-causing fraternity, Jimmy is swept up in a wave of violence that's about to crash on the Brighton seafront. Featuring an up-and-coming cast including Ray Winstone, Leslie Ash and Sting as the Mod-in-chief, Franc Roddam's adaptation of The Who's rock opera is as iconic as British drama gets.
