The Knick: The Complete Second Season DVD   The Knick: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray with Digital HD

Cinemax® presents Season 2 of the Emmy®-nominated drama directed by Oscar®-winner Steven Soderbergh, and starring Oscar®-nominee Clive Owen as John Thackery, a brilliant but drug-addled surgeon who pushes the boundaries of medicine, morality and race in a 1900s NYC hospital. The Knick, short for The Knickerbocker Hospital, faces an upheaval at the onset of S2, as Thackery’s absence (he’s being hospitalized for cocaine addiction in New England), a dearth of affluent patients, and financial missteps have led the hospital board to decide to shutter the Knick’s downtown location and move uptown. As the relocation plans go forward, Algernon Edwards (André Holland) – the gifted black surgeon whose affair with benefactor Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance) ended with an abortion and her marriage to a wealthy white heir in Season 1 – jockeys to become Thackery’s successor as Chief of Surgery, while fellow doctors, nurses, nuns and administrators grapple with numerous challenges, both at work and in their private lives.

Nightingale DVD with Digital HD     Nightingale Blu-ray with Digital HD

An official selection of the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival®, this HBO Films® presentation is a fascinating portrait of one man’s descent into the delusions of a fractured mind. Told with incisive imagery, energy and humor, Nightingale is a compassionate depiction of isolation in the midst of a world ruled by social media. David Oyelowo gives a spellbinding, roller-coaster ride of a performance as Peter, the sole character in the film, a war veteran who lives in a nondescript ranch home with his mother, and shares an ongoing monologue with himself, and the audience, via his laptop computer’s video recorder.

The Sunset Limited DVD

The Sunset Limited is a searing, two character drama that mixes humor and pathos while examining the relationship between two strangers who are brought together by desperate circumstances. The story focuses on two very different men – a deeply religious black ex-con (Samuel L. Jackson) who thwarts the suicide attempt of an asocial white college professor (Tommy Lee Jones), who tried to throw himself in front of an oncoming subway train, the Sunset Limited. As the one attempts to connect on a rational, spiritual and emotional level, the other remains steadfast in his hard-earned despair. As their philosophical debate progresses, each spar passionately to defend their personal credo and convert the other.

Premiering in 2006 at the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago, Cormac McCarthy’s “The Sunset Limited” opened off-Broadway in the fall of that year.

Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson star; written by Cormac McCarthy; directed and executive produced by Tommy Lee Jones; produced by Barbara Hall. An HBO Films presentation of a Javelina Film Company production.
