Do you know what films have given us the following quotes? "What we have here is a failure to communicate." "Excuse me while I whip this out." "Would somebody get this walking carpet out of my way?" "I don't know why they call this stuff Hamburger Helper, it does just fine by itself." And how are you at movie trivia? In The Blues Brothers why are Jake and Elwood "puttin' the band back together"? In Airplane!, which dinner was poisoned: the fish or the chicken? True or False: Diane Keaton won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Annie Hall. For the movie buff and video hound, Jai Nanda's What's that From? provides hours of entertainment. You can test your knowledge with more than 1,000 quotes and questions from more than 250 contemporary films--from Academy Award winners to cult classics. Also included are bonus questions on actors and directors, special categories on individual actors, movies, and themes (Western, baseball, sequels), plus a section devoted exclusively to Academy Award-winning performances. It's all here in the ultimate tribute to the great movies of the seventies, eighties, and nineties from National Lampoon's Animal House to When Harry Met Sally... So the next time you hear someone say, "It's just a flesh wound, " you won't have to ask "What's that from?"

It's 1969 in New York City's Lower East Side, and word has spread of the arrival of a mystical woman, a traveling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. The Gold children -- four adolescents on the cusp of self-awareness -- sneak out to hear their fortunes. Their prophecies inform their next five decades. Golden-boy Simon escapes to the West Coast, searching for love in '80s San Francisco. Dreamy Klara becomes a Las Vegas magician, obsessed with blurring reality and fantasy. Eldest son Daniel seeks security as an army doctor post-9/11, hoping to control fate. Bookish Varya throws herself into longevity research, where she tests the boundary between science and immortality. The Immortalists probes the line between destiny and choice, reality and illusion, this world and the next. It is a deeply moving testament to the power of story, the nature of belief, and the unrelenting pull of familial bonds.
