Mary and Martha DVD

 

From director Phillip Noyce (Dead Calm®, Patriot Games®) and writer Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral®, War Horse®), this uplifting HBO® Films drama focuses on two very different women – an upscale American interior designer named Mary (Hilary Swank) and a middle-class Englishwoman named Martha (Brenda Blethyn) – who form an unlikely bond following the losses of their only children from malaria contracted in Africa. Battling their lingering grief and the strains on their marriages, the two work together to raise awareness of malaria, a preventable and treatable disease, while recovering their sense of purpose. The film offers an inspiring template for overcoming loss, while showing how ordinary people can make a difference in influencing social policy and affecting positive change.

Phil Spector DVD

 

Academy Award® winners Al Pacino and Helen Mirren star in a new HBO® Films production written and directed by Pulitzer Prize®-winning and Oscar®-nominated playwright David Mamet. Phil Spector® is Mamet’s exploration of the client-attorney relationship between legendary music producer Phil Spector (Pacino) and defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden (Mirren), who represented Spector during his first trial for murder. The film is executive produced by Academy Award® winner Barry Levinson and David Mamet and produced by Emmy® winner Michael Hausman. An HBO Films presentation of a Levinson/Fontana Production, the film also stars Emmy® nominee Jeffrey Tambor and Golden Globe® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor. In the hands of celebrated playwright, screenwriter, author, director and producer David Mamet, Phil Spector is a mythological story, and he approaches it as a mythological story, rather than as a news story. Mamet begins his film with the card, “This is a work of fiction. It’s not ‘based on a true story.’ It is a drama inspired by actual persons in a trial, but it is neither an attempt to depict the actual persons, nor to comment upon the trial or its outcome.”

Treme: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray

 

New Orleans, 25 months later. Crime and corruption are up, culture is being trampled, and the people who matter – the workers, families and dreamers who still live here – have had enough. HBO’s® drama series Treme® revisits the musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians, and other familiar New Orleans characters who continue to rebuild their lives, their homes and their culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane that caused the near-death of an American city. In Season 3, which takes place from Fall 2007-Spring 2008, rampant crime and government ineptitude continue to cripple the city’s recovery, with outside profiteers looking to cash in on short-term gains. The series’ focus is still on ordinary people, but they no longer accept their lack of influence on the institutions that have controlled the city. Diminished by grief and loss, but fed up with incompetence and graft among police and city officials, the characters in Treme begin to make inroads in demanding that their music, art and well-being be protected. Through a murder prosecution that unites several players, Treme will also explore the city’s handling of justice, schools and politics, while charting the inspiring, grassroots efforts to preserve the individuality of this most iconic of American cities.  Special Features include The Music of Treme and an Invitation to the Set.  Catch up on Season 3 episodes prior to Season 4 premiere on Sunday, December 1st.

Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray with HBO Select

 

One of HBO®’s signature shows, this one-hour drama series chronicles the life and times of Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Golden Globe® winner Steve Buscemi), Atlantic City’s undisputed czar at a time when Prohibition proved to be a major catalyst in the rise of organized crime in America. Picking up 16 months after Season 2 ended, Season 3 begins on New Year’s Eve 1922-23. The Roaring ‘20s are about to start; though the economy is booming, alcohol has become scarce, competition is fierce, and gangster violence is heating up. Amidst this backdrop, Nucky, whose marriage to Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) has become a sham after she signed away his highway windfall to the church, faces new competition in the person of Gyp Rosetti (new cast member Bobby Cannavale), who builds a new strategic bulkhead between New York and Atlantic City in an effort to siphon off Nucky’s alcohol business. The conflict brings out the best and worst in Nucky, who proves his brutal mettle in a series of violent encounters. New and familiar faces also undergo compelling metamorphoses as the 12 new episodes.

Enlightened: The Complete Second Season DVD

 

Created by Mike White and Laura Dern, this half-hour HBO® comedy series centers on Amy Jellicoe (Dern), a well-intentioned employee of a Southern California corporation who, after flipping out and going to anger-management rehab, emerges with a singular, if at times hilariously misguided, mission to make her company more responsible. When we last saw her, Amy finally presented her research outlining Abaddonn Industries’ toxic sins, but after being laughed out of the room, she became even more determined to expose the company not only as a polluter, but a bastion of corporate greed and corruption. Having convinced co-worker Tyler (White) to let her use his IT password to retrieve incriminating emails, Season 2 picks up with Amy immersed in gathering evidence against Abaddonn. In this season’s eight episodes, Amy enlists the help of journalist Jeff Flender (Dermot Mulroney), and as they work together on a searing exposé, she dreams of a “bigger” life and develops romantic yearnings for the handsome, well-travelled reporter. Meanwhile, Amy’s ex Levi (Luke Wilson) is still at Open Air Treatment Center in Hawaii, but it remains to be seen whether he will embrace recovery and return as the man she always wanted him to be. Touching, earnest and laugh-out-loud funny, Season 2 of Enlightened® follows Amy along her personal journey to make change – and the unexpected impact it has on those around her.

Girls: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray with HBO Select

 

Following the urban adventures of a group of 20-something women, the series focuses on Hannah Horvath (Dunham) and her complicated web of NYC friends, ex-friends, boyfriends, and ex-boyfriends. This season, Hannah forges ahead in her writing pursuits and begins seeing someone new, but her enthusiasm is tempered by the responsibility she feels her now-ex Adam (Adam Driver), convalescing after his Season 1 finale accident. Let down by works and still lonely after calling things off with Charlie, Marnie (Allison Williams) needs her best friend and former roommate more than ever, but lingering awkwardness – and some surprising turns – only drive a wedge further between the pair. Meanwhile, still-married Jessa (Jemima Kirke) returns from her honeymoon in Mexico, supplying Hannah with new, wild ideas. Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) takes charge of her new identity as a sexually active woman – and copes with the emotions that come along with it – as Ray (Alex Karpovsky) has an out-of-sight, out-of-mind attitude towards their relationship. The girls have their ups and downs, but the show’s raw poignancy and fresh humor remain consistent. And Season 2 of Girls® is as addictive as ever.
