"A father and son steer the American road comedy into a vanishing Midwest on the trail of a dubious fortune - and in search of an understanding of each other that once seemed impossible. This is the story of the Grant family of Hawthorne, Nebraska. Now transplanted to Billings, Montana, stubborn, taciturn Woody is well past his prime -- such as it ever was -- and possibly his usefulness, but he believes he's got one last shot at mattering: a notice that he's the lucky winner of a million-dollar sweepstakes. To claim his fortune, Woody insists he must quickly get to the sweepstakes company's office in Lincoln, Nebraska - a-750-mile journey that seems unlikely given that he can barely shuffle down the road a few blocks, at least not without stopping for a drink. Worried for his father's state of mind, it falls to Woody's reluctant, baffled son David to accompany him on a trip that seems hilariously futile on the surface. Yet, their odd journey becomes a kind of modern family odyssey. When Woody and David make a pit-stop in their hometown of Hawthorne - with the Grant's tart-tongued matriarch and anchor-man son joining them - word of Woody's fortune makes him, momentarily, a returning hero. Then it brings out the vultures. But it also opens a view into the unseen lives of David's parents and a past more alive than he ever imagined."--Container
About Schmidt by Louis Begley( visu )

Warren Schmidt is at sea after being left a widower shortly after retiring from a lifetime as an actuary at Woodmen of the World Insurance in Omaha, Nebraska. He matter-of-factly explains that, since he is 67, retired, and a widower, he should be dead within nine years--this in a letter to the African boy he is sponsoring through a charitable relief organization. As daughter Jeannie's wedding to waterbed salesman fiancé Randall looms, Warren sets out for Denver in his Winnebago Adventurer to attend, and discovers along the way that slavish devotion to an insurance company hasn't exactly made for a life well spent

In between conference calls, meetings, deadlines, and her daughter's school bake sale, Kate manages to survive on a daily basis. But when she gets handed a major new account that will require frequent trips to New York, and Richard also wins the new job he's been hoping for, both will be spreading themselves even thinner. Complicating matters is Kate's charming new business associate Jack Ablehammer (Pierce Brosnan), a handsome executive whose unexpected emotional support becomes a source of refuge. Also starring: Christina Hendricks, Kelsey Grammer, Seth Meyers and Olivia Munn."--Container

Cindy und Derek, deren Kinderwunsch unerfüllt bleibt, können nicht über ihre Trauer sprechen. Stattdessen spielt er Online-Poker, während sie in einem Selbsthilfeforum Zuwendung sucht. Erst als jemand im Internet ihre Identität stiehlt und sie finanziell ruiniert, findet das Paar wieder zueinander. Rich ist eine andere verlorene Seele: Der Anwalt ist permanent mit seinem iphone beschäftigt. Dabei bräuchte sein Sohn seine Hilfe, denn er ist Opfer von Cybermobbing. Ein anderer Teenager, Kyle, verdient sich seinen Unterhalt vor der Webcam mit Online-Prostitution. Dieser skurrile, liebevolle und zugleich erschütternde Episodenfilm zeigt das Schicksal verschiedener Menschen, die sich im virtuellen Raum verlieren. Nur mit Mühe erkennen sie noch die Grenzen zwischen elektronischer Scheinwelt und Realität. Geschichten, die im Web unabhängig voneinander stattfinden, sich aber doch berühren. Fast jedermann wird sich hineinversetzen und teilweise wieder erkennen können. Kommunikation sollte die Menschen näher zusammenbringen. Moderne Technologie sollte noch schneller, noch intensiver, noch effizienter connecten. "Disconnect" zeigt, wie schnell sich die Entwicklung ins Gegenteil verkehren kann: scheinbare Nähe, Vereinsamung, Stalking, Cybermobbing! Paradoxon einer hyper-kommunikations-Gesellschaft.

Election by Alexander Payne( visu )
2 editions published in 2000 in Italian and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Trama: Alla High Carver School di Omaha (Nebraska) è tempo di elezioni: Tracy Flick, l'allieva più brillante dell'istituto, sembra la sola candidata realmente motivata a ricoprire la carica di presidente del consiglio studentesco. Tuttavia, Jim McAllister, docente di educazione civica ritenuto da tutti un insegnante modello, considera Tracy un' arrivista priva di scrupoli e propone a Paul Metzler, il capitano della squadra di football, di candidarsi per la medesima carica. La sorpresa di Tracy nell'apprendere di non essere l'unica candidata sarà ancora più grande quando vedrà scendere in campo anche la sorella di Paul, Tammy, desiderosa di vendicarsi del fratello, colpevole di essersi fidanzato con Lisa, una ragazza di cui si era invaghita. I tre candidati non potrebbero avere programmi più diversi: se Tracy punta al miglioramento dell'efficenza dell'istituto, Paul si concentra sulle attività ricreative. Tammy, al contrario, si pone in palese rottura con il sistema scolastico invitando gli studenti ad astenersi. Nel frattempo la vita sentimentale di McAllister si complica: frustrato dalla monotonia coniugale, stringe una relazione con Linda, moglie di un suo ex collega licenziato a causa di una relazione proprio con Tracy. Quando la campagna elettorale giunge al culmine, Tracy, schiacciata dalla pressione psicologica, strappa tutti i manifesti elettorali affissi da Paul. Viene aperta un'inchiesta: interrogata da McAllister, Tammy si autoaccusa, scagionando Tracy che in questo modo ottiene una vittoria di misura su Paul. McAllister tuttavia non ci sta: incaricato dello spoglio, fa sparire alcune schede, proclamando vincitore Metzler. Il trucco viene però smascherato proprio quando la moglie di McAllister scopre di essere stata tradita. Licenziato, ridotto sul lastrico dal divorzio, il professore è costretto a trasferirsi: riuscirà a farsi una nuova vita e, qualche anno dopo, incontrerà casualmente Tracy a Washingthon, ormai lanciata in un'irresistibile carriera politica
