In the high-stakes, edge-of-your-seat thriller The Call, a thin thread of survival separates a teenage kidnap victim from her only hope: a compassionate, steady voice on the other end of a cell phone marshalling all the resources she can to find her.Veteran 911 Emergency Call Centre operator Jordan (Halle Berry) has the kind of job that's not for the faint of heart: navigating the public's distress in order to save lives. But when a young woman's frantic report of a prowler ends tragically, Jordan is devastated. Reassessing her life, Jordan wonders if perhaps she's experienced her last fraught-filled phone call. With a supportive cop (Morris Chestnut) for a boyfriend, maybe it's time to step back, enjoy life, and teach others the ins and outs of her high-pressure profession. That lifeline to strangers isn't over yet, though. When average American teenager Casey (Abigail Breslin), is abducted by a serial killer (Michael Eklund), she manages to place a 911 call from the trunk of the killer's car.Jordan, leading a group of new recruits through the massive Call Center operation, is in earshot of the call. It's an all-too familiar scenario for this experienced public servant, but before long, Casey's situation reveals itself as eerily, shockingly familiar. There's only one thing Jordan can do: take charge in a way she's never done before. She must turn Casey into a partner in helping them track down the killer, and prove that this call is Jordan's calling.TriStar Pictures and Stage 6 Films present in association with Troika Pictures, WWE Studios and Amasia Entertainment, A Troika Pictures and WWE Studios production, The Call, starring Halle Berry (Monster's Ball, Cloud Atlas), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, New Year's Eve), Morris Chestnut (Identity Thief, Think Like a Man), Michael Eklund (The Divide), and Michael Imperioli ('The Sopranos').

"(Breakaway: 1977) is a fiercely compelling read by ... a truly creative writer who brings to life real characters across a blazing backdrop of imagination." - Sylvia Anderson, co-creator of Space: 1999Breakaway: 1977 takes place in 1970s Saskatchewan and concerns three teenagers in the throes of identity formation who form a close bond due to their shared social obstacles and love of science, science fiction, philosophy, and heavy rock music. Their fascination with the British TV series Space: 1999 is strongly evident. Breakaway: 1977 traces the downward trajectory of teenager Lionel O'Neill, an intelligent and sensitive youth from a troubled home. When his much-loved older brother Jerry disappears, Lionel suspects his own secrets might have played a role. Thus begins his descent into madness and murder.Celina Cuadro (BookIdeas.com) describes Breakaway: 1977 as concerning "8th graders Roger Kay, Samantha Renfield, and Lionel O'Neill - all very intelligent and marginalized for that, all with vibrant and intense mental worlds - and in the case of one of them, too vibrant and intense for them to handle. The reality of their lives was the small city of Yorkton at the southeastern part of Saskatchewan, and St. Joseph's Junior High School. For Roger Kay reality was the humdrum life of an only child in a middle class family, whose slight physique and intelligence made him the target of bullies. For Samantha Renfield it was her parent's strict, conservative, religious upbringing - so oppressive to a young girl intelligent enough to understand women were becoming more and more empowered and wanting to be part of that change. Lionel O'Neill had the most uphill battle: with his family beset by financial woes, his father turning to drink and victimizing his mother, his sisters fleeing their home and only his brother Jerry to care for him, Lionel (or "Neil" as Roger preferred to call him) also had two very dark secrets hidden away in his subconscious that attack him unawares. Despite all this these three friends tried to craft better lives together than what was handed them by focusing on the beacon that informed their minds and raised their hopes: the TV science fiction series Space: 1999."From the back cover:"AN AMBITIOUS QUEST TO EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITIES OF THE HUMAN CONDITION ... RECOMMENDED" -Bookideas.com "PROFOUNDLY TRUTHFUL" -Robert E. Wood, author of Destination: Moonbase AlphaWhat would happen if you were suddenly cut off from the one lifeline that kept you sane in an unbearable situation? Lionel O'Neill is forced to wander hostile environments and alien situations as his life deteriorates and a cold, menacing existential void craves his bones. This century-spanning epistolary tale of devotion and madness reveals the teenagers of 1977 to be just as media and music obsessed as modern youth. In Breakaway: 1977, middle-school diaries and audio transcripts document teenage angst and delusion, the adolescent conflict between free will and destiny, and ultimately, outline a subtly satiric murder mystery amid a context of science fiction fandom. Included are detailed analyses of Space: 1999 episodes, a previously unreleased interview with Barry Morse, plus the secrets of potatoes.
