According to Greta (2009) Hilary Duff, Evan Ross, Michael Murphy, Ellen Burstyn. Hilary Duff stars as Greta, a rebellious 17 year old 'exiled' for the summer to a sleepy Jersey shore community where she immediately informs her grandparents (Murphy and Burstyn) of her plans to kill herself by the time she turns 18. But before Greta can cross suicide off her 'to-do' list, she begins a romance with a young cook from a troubled background (Ross), confronts a tragic family secret and maybe even discover the promising young woman beneath her sarcastic shell. Also available on Blu-ray Disc. (Anchor Bay Entertainment).

Che (2008) Dir.: Steven Soderbergh; Benicio del Toro. Far from a conventional biopic, Steven Soderbergh's film about Che Guevara is a fascinating exploration of the revolutionary as icon. Daring in its refusal to make the socialist leader into an easy martyr or hero, "Che" paints a vivid, naturalistic portrait of the man himself (with a stunning, Cannes-award-winning performance by Benicio del Toro), from his overthrow of the Batista dictatorship to his 1964 United Nations trip to the end of his short life. Originally released in two parts, the first a kaleidoscopic view of the Cuban revolution and the second an all-action dramatization of Che's failed campaign in Bolivia, "Che" is presented here in its complete form (four-and-a-half hours). Extras: Commentary featuring Jon Lee Anderson, author of "Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life"; "Making Che," a new documentary about the film's production, featuring interviews with Soderbergh, producer Laura Bickford, actor-producer Benicio del Toro, and writers Peter Buchman and Ben van der Veen; new interviews with Cuban historians as well as participants in the 1958 Cuban Revolution and Che's 1967 Bolivian campaign; deleted scenes; booklet featuring an essay by critic Amy Taubin; more. Also available on Blu-ray Disc. (The Criterion Collection).

Eclipse Series 19: Chantal Akerman in the Seventies Over the past four decades, Belgian director Chantal Akerman has created one of cinema's most distinctive bodies of work -- formally daring, often autobiographical films about people and places, time and space. This three-disc collection presents the early films that put her on the map: intensely personal, modernist investigations of cities, history, family, and sexuality, made in the 1970s in the United States and Europe and strongly influenced by the New York experimental film scene. Bold and iconoclastic, these five films pushed boundaries in their day and continue to have a profound influence on filmmakers all over the world. Included in this no-frills set is "La chambre," "Hotel Monterey," "News From Home," "Je tu il elle" and "Les rendez-vous d'anna."
