Zalman King hits the Colorado slopes and romances Charlotte Rampling in The Ski Bum.

groovy, sexy Émile Zola adaptation Nana.

An innocent teenage girl falls prey to late-
1960s sex and drugs in Not My Daughter.

1950s housewife Betsy Palmer
goes undercover to stop drug kingpin Jack Lord in The True Story of Lynn Stuart.

Larry Buchanan's laughably cut-rate Hollywood bio-pic Hughes and Harlow: Angels in Hell.
