A head-banging bike messenger in a prolonged punk adolescence, romantically involved with a postoperative transsexual. An ex-British Navy man with a homicidal blood-sugar disorder, engaged in an ill-fated affair with a man-eating matron. A shellshocked World War I vet who hears birds speaking Greek. Such is the autumn itinerary of Rupert Graves, the young English actor best known here for playing upper-crusty Brits, usually in E.M.

In "Intimate Relations," when Julie Walters' Marjorie Beasley--a relentlessly proper housewife in small-town England in the 1950s--asserts that she "would rather be dead than brazen," don't believe her. Beneath her dowdy wardrobe and unbecoming too-tight curls is a woman so consumed with sexual frustration she swiftly seduces her startled new young lodger, Harold (Rupert Graves). Alas, Marjorie's 13-year-old daughter Joyce (Laura Sadler) is onto the affair right from the start.

"Dreaming of Joseph Lees" paints a portrait of a young woman who must at last assert herself if she is to have any hope of happiness. The beauty of this English picture is that until its very last seconds we don't know if she will or not, for her story could just as credibly go either way. However, by then we've long since become caught up in her psychological struggle.

Intrepid reporters, noble homeless, outlaw masons and tutti Mafiosi are the ingredients in "The Innocent Sleep," an English thriller that won't inspire much raising of hair, tingling of spines or biting of nails. But it does have an intelligent cast and none of them wear capes. Imagine a fair to middlin' "Prime Suspect" episode--except that in lieu of the severe but sensitive Det. Inspector Jane Tennyson we get the severe but sensitive crime reporter Billie Hayman (Annabella Sciorra).

The main question regarding “Farm Boy” is whether the storytelling so sensationally realized in “War Horse” can be evoked without a huge cast, evening-length scope and lifelike puppets. Courtesy of director David Fofi and actors Lawrence Pressman and Simon Lees, the answer is a quietly mesmerizing yes. Daniel Buckroyd's adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's sequel to his phenomenally successful account of a boy, a horse, and World War I is the diametric opposite of its award-winning predecessor.
