Movie lovers may be pleased to know that La La Land, the musical wrongly announced as Best Picture, is now on DVD at the Nichols Library. Critics were dazzled by director Damien Chazelle’s throwback style (with one notable exception). Patriots Day is a straight no chaser re-enactment of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Mark Wahlberg stars as a weary street cop on the scene at the finish line. From his vantage, we meet victims, see the fight for control of the operation, and follow the manhunt to its fatal conclusion. Star Wars Rouge One answers a question left over from the original movie: how did Princess Leia get the Death Star plans that revealed its fatal weakness? Remember Hope and Glory, the story of an English boy who survives the London Blitz and learns to pitch a googly? In Queen and Country, he’s come of age, in the army and ready for love. This wartime comedy of manners offers a “delightfully whimsical portrait of 1952 England, that’s both uproarious and politically pointed” (Minneapolis Star Tribune). Moana and Sing offer animated fun for kids of all ages.
