New on DVD
The Blindside - Families come in all sorts of shapes and sizes these days and this one is no exception. Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock brings this touching story to DVD based on a true story. Bullock plays Leigh Anne Tuohy. Leigh Anne is a no nonsense gal living a great life with her football coach husband (Tim Mcgraw) and family. Michael has had a hard life and was living on the streets until he meets Leigh Anne. She welcomes him into her home despite the opinions of her friends and the community. Leigh Anne also encourages Michael to join the football team where he catches on quick. Can Michael turn his life around with the help of Leigh Anne and her family? Despite the turmoil in Bullock’s personal life, Bullock still has some great choices from the Patrol vaults including “All About Steve,” “The Proposal, and “Speed.”
Brothers - It’s always a risky proposition when families have loved ones who go off to war or serve in the military. Especially for Sam Cahill (Tobey Mcguire). Before he leaves, he goes to pick up his brother Tommy (Jake Gyllenhaal) who has just been released from prison. Tommy meets Sam’s wife Grace (Natalie Portman) and their family. While Sam is in Afghanistan, his plane is shot down. After some time has passed, Sam is believed to be dead and Tommy and Grace move on with their lives. Then, they receive news that Sam is still alive and he comes home to find that things have changed. Sam doesn’t react well to all the changes that have taken place. Can Tommy and Grace help Sam deal with the pressure of returning from war? Gyllenhaal is getting ready to star in an all new action movie coming out this aummer from Disney called “The Prince of Persia” coming to theaters.
