Thus, Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander, while her father wants only Demetrius for his son-in-law. Poor Helena burns hot for Demetrius, who avoids her like the plague. Meanwhile, fairy king Oberon is engaged in a battle of wits with his queen, Titania, and has commanded a trick of Puck, which naturally goes horribly wrong. They are all in the enchanted wood on a midsummer's eve, coming out in the end charged with a gift from the fairies--an enchanted eroticism--that sweeps them away to bed chambers and weddings. The film celebrates love's ability to alter reality while quietly acknowledging that any attempt to portray the feeling of love ultimately falls short10007ocn236206244rcrd20080.12Le CarreĢ, JohnA most wanted manFictionSuspense fictionA half-starved young Russian man in a long black overcoat is smuggled into Hamburg in the dead of night.

His experiments produce an astonishing drug that draws out the evil side of his own nature: the evil Mr. Hyde. At first, an antidote restores the physician to his better self. But once realized, Mr. Hyde grows more and more powerful and resistant to restraints. Ultimately he commits an atrocity which to the mild-mannered doctor would be unthinkable.
