1 / 5
New on Blu-ray & DVD: January 1
Robert Pattinson moves money and blows minds in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis; Michael C. Hall finds Trouble with Bliss; Keira Knightley stars in Doctor Zhivago; and Timothy Olyphant takes aim in Justified in this week's new releases.
Twilight star Robert Pattinson plays a bloodsucker of a more theoretical sort in his trippy new movie from director David Cronenberg. Based on the novel by Don DeLillo, Cosmopolis follows one day in the wild life of multi-billionaire asset manager Eric Packer (Pattinson), who travels aimlessly through the streets of New York City in his limousine while conducting investment trading from the back seat. As the day progresses, it devolves into an odyssey with a cast of characters that start to tear his world apart. Jay Baruchel, Paul Giamatti and Juliette Binoche co-star.
The Trouble with Bliss
Anchor Bay Entertainment
Dexter star Michael C. Hall takes on a more comical role as a 35-year-old New Yorker experiencing arrested development in life. Unable to travel because he has no money, unable to get a job because he has no prospects, Morris Bliss (Hall) shares an apartment with his widowed father (Peter Fonda) and has some serious emotional inertia. Wrapped up in an awkward relationship with the 18-year-old daughter (Brie Larson) of a former classmate and trying to field a very forward neighbor (Lucy Liu), Morris soon finds his static life unraveling and opening up in ways that are long overdue.
Keira Knightley, Sam Neill and Hans Matheson star in this classic, 2003 Masterpiece Theatre production of Boris Pasternak's Nobel Prize-winning novel of the sweeping Russian Revolution, now on DVD! Nominated for a BAFTA for Best Drama in 2003.
