DETAILS: Nicolas Cage and Sam Rockwell make a winning duo as con artists embarking on their biggest heist yet — until Cage’s daughter (Alison Lohman) arrives on the scene — in this all-encompassing crime comedy that is at once touching, suspenseful, and hilarious.
EXTRAS: It’s also being released in a special, limited-edition, two-disc version boasting a soundtrack that includes the musical score by Academy Award-winner Hans Zimmer, as well as a compilation of songs from the film, such as Bobby Darin’s “The Good Life” and Herb Albert’s “Tijuana Taxi” and “Lonely Bull.”
TITLE: THE THORN BIRDS
DETAILS: The second-highest-rated television miniseries of all time (it garnered 130 million viewers during its four-night run in 1983) spans 60 years of drama, scandal, and forbidden love in the Cleary family. Who will ever forget Meggie’s illicit, lifelong affair with the family priest, Father Bricassart (and you thought your family had skeletons)?
EXTRAS: This collector’s set has more than eight hours of content and a special retrospective documentary.
TITTLE: LE DIVORCE
DETAILS: Contrary to what the title suggests, this is a romantic com-edy. And while we wouldn’t have suggested spending your money on a movie ticket, renting this flick isn’t a bad idea. Kate Hudson and Naomi Watts star, with a supporting cast that includes Glenn Close, Stockard Channing, and Sam Waterston.
EXTRAS: Pretty typical fare, like deleted scenes and commentary by director/producer team James Ivory and Ismail Merchant.
