six of the best buys this weekend
Saturday 26 August 1995
The Trick is to Keep Breathing Janice Galloway (Minerva, pounds 6.99). Siobhan Redmond to star in the Tron theatre adaptation of this stunner.
Pride and Prejudice Jane Austen (Penguin/ Oxford pounds 1.99). BBC2 six-parter starring Alison Steadman as Mrs Bennett.
The English Patient Michael Ondaatje (Picador pounds 6.99). An Anthony Minghella film with Ralph Fiennes and Kristin Scott Thomas.
Devil in a Blue Dress Walter Mosley (Pan pounds 4.99). Carl Franklin's much- delayed thriller stars Denzel Washington.
Richard III Shakespeare (Penguin pounds 2.99). Ian McKellen's serious bid for silver-screen stardom.
Restoration Rose Tremain (Sceptre pounds 5.99). Richly detailed prizewinner will star Hugh Grant.
SIX VIDOES Pulp Fiction (18; Touchstone; pounds 14.99). Yes, we've all seen it, but now we can all buy it, too. Just quote the dialogue unless you want a smack in the mouth.
Oasis by the Sea (PMI; pounds 11.99). No-frills live show from that Manchester mob who aren't number one.
Priest (15; PolyGram; Rental). Jimmy McGovern's powerful tale of a gay priest.
With Honors (PG; Warner; Rental). Sentimental but sensitive tale of homelessness and Harvard boys.
True Lies (15; CIC; pounds 12.99). Wham-bam thrills and spills with not a jot of logic to spoil things.
The Shawshank Redemption (15; Guild; Rental). Notably soppy prison drama redeemed by Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman.
