    Re: the wonderful A and B

    In all cases b) applies. Make it easy to understand by writing "She had the principal role in the wonderful films 'Hours', and 'Eyes Wide Shut".

    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
