Best Free Foreign-Film Rental - 2009
Newport Beach Public Library
Sometimes rich people really come in handy. This state-of-the-art facility isn't just the most aesthetically appealing library in the county, but it also has an extensive, eclectic collection of foreign films available for anyone with a membership card. Whether you're in the mood for Bergman's horrifying The Virgin Spring, the risqué French romantic comedy Claire's Knee or La Vida es Silbar—Fernando Perez's 1998 ode to Cuba's artistic soul, you won't find a more diverse collection anywhere else. You can rent up to five at a time; just bring them all back in a week.
