Winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes and the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film, The White Ribbon was also nominated for two Academy Awards, including Best Cinematography. The movie is a German-language drama written and directed by Michael Haneke. Moody and mesmerizing, The White Ribbon is a deliberately paced, visually stunning black-and-white period piece. Its story is not difficult to follow, but be advised that it is unsettling and does not provide the sense of closure. There's a lot of ambiguity in The White Ribbon. But Haneke has created a memorable portrait of a repressive patriarchal society that looks well-ordered from the outside, yet is rotting away from the inside.

Julianne Moore, Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo give fine performances in The Kids Are All Right, a critically acclaimed comedy-drama co-written and directed by Lisa Cholodenko (Laurel Canyon, High Art). The film's storyline centers on a marital crisis, but the twist is that the marriage is between two women. That idea is problematic, but Cholodenko and her co-writer, Stuart Blumberg, created interesting characters who are sympathetic, but flawed, and those characters are brilliantly brought to life by the talented cast. This is a movie with big laughs. The DVD includes Cholodenko's feature-length commentary. She covers everything from writing the script to casting to the shoot to post-production.DVD Release Date: November 16, 2010
