At a visiting swami's lecture, Edwardian gentleman Fisk (Jeremy Northam) meets his district's strange new clergyman, Dean Spanley (Sam Neill). The dean is a firm believer in reincarnation, which he expounds upon freely when drinking a particular Hungarian wine. Curious, Fisk delivers a case of the stuff to the dean, regaling in the man's stories about his previous life as a dog. Peter O'Toole co-stars in this offbeat British comedy.

When a member of Parliament (Jeremy Northam) learns that his career and marriage will suffer scandal unless he submits to a blackmailer (Julianne Moore), he turns his fate over to lifelong bachelor Lord Goring (Rupert Everett), "the idlest man in London." Brimming with witticisms and great performances (including those from Cate Blanchett and Minnie Driver), this big-screen adaptation of Oscar Wilde's stage play sparkles like vintage champagne.

An American scholar (Aaron Eckhart) discovers that Victorian-era poet Randolph Ash (Jeremy Northam) had a secret affair with lesser-known poet Christabel LaMotte (Jennifer Ehle) -- the subject of another scholar's (Gwyneth Paltrow) studies -- even though Ash was married and LaMotte was a "chaste spinster." As the two academics investigate the romance between their subjects, they find themselves wrapped up in the drama as well.

Bored with his suburban life, Morgan (Jeremy Northam) enters the world of corporate espionage, spying on rival corporations for Digicorp. It's all very exciting until he realizes he's being used as a pawn in the war between Digicorp and rival Sunways. Lucy Liu co-stars as a femme fatale who might be able to help him get out of the situation alive in this tense drama, which won the Grand Jury Prize for Fantasy at the 2003 Fantasporo Film Festival.
Details about Cypher
This adaptation of the classic novel by Henry James pits an American industrialist (Nick Nolte) and his daughter against two well-connected but impoverished social climbers (Uma Thurman and Jeremy Northam) who'd rather marry for money than lower their station.
