Is it love... or are they just imagining things?Developed under the working title, Loosely Based on a True Love Story, the movie is loosely based on the story of author Fyodor Dostoevsky, who dictated his novel, The Gambler, in 30 days in order to pay off a gambling debt—and in the process, fell in love with his young stenographer.

After his laptop is destroyed, he hires Emma (Hudson), a stenographer who talks as much as she writes.

The World Is Not Enough is a 1999 spy film. It is the 19th film in the James Bond series, and the third to star Pierce Brosnan as MI6 agent James Bond. The film's original story and screenplay was written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, influenced by the writings of Ian Fleming but with no specific elements incorporated beyond his characters. It was produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. In the film, Bond is assigned to stop Renard, a terrorist who plans to permanently disrupt petroleum shipments from the Caspian Sea by causing the meltdown of a nuclear submarine in the waters of Istanbul.
The World Is Not Enough would end up being the last to feature Desmond Llewelyn as Q, following his death in December 1999. The title marks a return to Fleming, as it comes from the English translation of the Bond family motto, Orbis non sufficit (in Latin), which was established and adopted by James Bond in the novel On Her Majesty's Secret Service and its film adaptation.
Braveheart (1995) is a historical action-drama movie produced and directed by Mel Gibson, who also starred in the title role.

The film won five Academy Awards at the 68th Academy Awards, including the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director, and had been nominated for an additional five. Produced by Icon Productions for Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox, the film's success may have helped to revive the historical epic genre, with subsequent films such as Gladiator, The Patriot, Alexander, Troy, Kingdom of Heaven and 300.
