SILVER LININGS & more New Releases for April 30

We have another diminutive week nevertheless filled with goodness—documentaries, multi-award winners, a bunch of nearly forgotten films from the Fox archives, and much more. Here's the list:

 

BLU = Also available to rent on Blu-ray disc

@ = Available for sale in the store (but we can special order anything, see us for details)

SALE = Click this link to purchase select titles from our online store

 

SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK--David O. Russell's adaptation of Matthew Quick's novel is a sweet tale of falling apart, the struggle to come back from losing a bit of one's mind, and the people we turn to for help. It features a fine ensemble cast with Julia Stiles, Jacki Weaver, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper and Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence. My only complaint: not enough Chris Tucker.  BLU  @  SALE

 

THE DETAILS—With his suburban malaise in full flame, a mild-mannered husband and father (Tobey Maguire) puts all his self-worth into keeping his lawn the best on the block. Then a family of pesky raccoons messes it up and sends him into a downward spiral of dysfunction and worse in this comedy/drama filmed in Seattle and the Eastside. (Suck it, Vancouver!)  BLU  SALE

 

BROKEN CITY—Mark Wahlberg plays a former NYPD officer/current private detective who uncovers a whole lot more than adultery when the gruff mayor (Russell Crowe, best gruff ever) hires him to follow his possibly philandering wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones) in this tough-guy crime film.  BLU  SALE

 

NOT FADE AWAYSopranos’ creator David Chase’s coming-of-age film is set in the 1960s at the height of the British Invasion and follows a group of friends with ambitions to succeed as a band. BLU

 

THE GUILT TRIP—I know how it may look, but it definitely has its funny and touching moments. Plus, Seth Rogen! And I'll always love Babs because she's the greatest star. BLU

 

WALK AWAY RENEE—Jonathan Caouette’s follow-up to his 2003 documentary Tarnation takes him and his mother, who suffers from bipoloar schizoaffective disorder, on an emotional cross-country road trip.
