Full Descriptions and Trailers

Coming to DVD–Tuesday

Silent House

Silent House is a uniquely unsettling horror thriller starring Elizabeth Olsen as Sarah, a young woman who finds herself sealed inside her family’s secluded lake house. With no contact to the outside world, and no way out, panic turns to terror as events become increasingly ominous in and around the house.

 Meeting Evil

When John Fleton, a depressed suburban family man and recently fired realtor, offers to help a stranger, Richie, with his car, John is sucked into a surreal, nightmarish murder spree that forces him to question everything about his life, his mode of behavior, and the very nature of evil.

The Deep Blue Sea

Master chronicler of post-War England, Davies directs Rachel Weisz as a woman whose overpowering, obsessive love alienates the men around her and destroys her well being. The film is an adaptation of British playwright Terence Rattigan’s 1952 play.

In a deeply vulnerable performance Weisz is the latest incarnation of Hester Collyer, the wife of a High Court judge (British theatre actor Simon Russell Beale), a free spirit trapped in a passionless marriage. Her encounter with Freddie Page, a troubled former Royal Air Force pilot (Tom Hiddleston, ‘Thor’, ‘Midnight in Paris’, ‘War Horse’, ‘The Avengers’) throws her life in turmoil, as their erotic relationship leaves her emotionally stranded and physically isolated. Nearly abandoned by Freddie, Hester attempts to win him back through a desperate gesture. This only serves to estrange her more from the men in her life and reality itself.

 Footnote

Footnote is the tale of a great rivalry between a father and son. Eliezer and Uriel Shkolnik are both eccentric professors who have dedicated their lives to their work in Talmudic Studies. The father, Eliezer, is a stubborn purist who fears the establishment and has never been recognized for his work. While his son, Uriel, is an up-and-coming star in the field, who appears to feed on accolades, endlessly seeking recognition. Then one day, the tables turn. When Eliezer learns that he is to be awarded the Israel Prize, the most valuable honor for scholarship in the country, his vanity and desperate need for validation are exposed. His son Uriel, meanwhile, is thrilled to see his father’s achievements finally recognized but, in a darkly funny twist, is forced to choose between the advancement of his own career and his father’s. Will he sabotage his father?s glory?

Brake

Jeremy Reins (Stephen Dorff) is about to have a very bad day. He wakes up in total darkness, confused and disoriented. The only light comes from the blood-red digital numbers ticking away above his head. Jeremy quickly realizes he’s in trouble. It’s hard to breathe. He can barely move. And no one will answer his cries for help. Then, he hears the sound of an engine and it all becomes clear…he’s trapped in the trunk of a moving car. As his captors reveal themselves and their motives, Jeremy realizes he won’t be set free until he gives up the whereabouts of “Roulette,” a secret location where the U.S. President is taken in the event of a terrorist attack.

Budz House

A pot-smoking California slacker and his pals stumble across a local dealer’s massive stash, and inadvertently create a powerful new strain of “superweed” while incurring the wrath of some ruthless local gangsters. Bud Howard (Wesley Jonathan) just can’t seem to get out of his mother’s home. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that he spends all of his time smoking weed and reading comics with his friends — none of whom are exactly self-motivated. When Bud and his pals happen across a cache of primo buds, they can’t believe their good fortune. But this stash is spoken for, and the owner isn’t about to let it go without a fight. Squirreling the weed away beneath his porch, Bud gets the shock of his life when a plumbing mishap miraculously fertilizes the plants and creates a revolutionary strain that gets the whole neighborhood buzzing. But as the cash starts rolling in, a local gang leader decides to let them know who’s really in charge of the local supply.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’ is the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3 star Michelin review, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar.

For most of his life, Jiro has been mastering the art of making sushi, but even at his age he sees himself still striving for perfection, working from sunrise to well beyond sunset to taste every piece of fish; meticulously train his employees; and carefully mold and finesse the impeccable presentation of each sushi creation. At the heart of this story is Jiro’s relationship with his eldest son Yoshikazu, the worthy heir to Jiro’s legacy, who is unable to live up to his full potential in his father’s shadow.

The feature film debut of director David Gelb, ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’ is a thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection, chronicling Jiro’s life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world, and a loving yet complicated father.
