Something For Everyone: Check Out Our DVDs!

Posted by Cary H. 

We like to think we have the best DVD collection in library land.  We have popular and classic TV series, award winning movies, independent and foreign films, and documentaries and self-help.  Visit often to browse our shelves and find new arrivals.  Here is a sampling of our latest shipment:

The Detectorists is a quirky, subtle, wonderful British series about two men who find friendship and purpose in metal detecting.  In Britain, where valuable pieces of Roman antiquity might be found over the next hill or dale, our two misfits start afresh daily with renewed hope!  Mix in a cast of girlfriends, ex-wives, and an odd mix at the local detectorist club and you find yourself caring about vintage ’83 soda tabs and these characters more than you can imagine! P.S. the soundtrack is awesome too!

Many of us grew up with the Carol Burnett Show.  How about some lost episodes as a treat?

Misty Copeland won hearts and fame on June 30, 2015 when she became the first African American woman to be promoted to principal dancer in American Ballet Theater’s 75-year history.  A Ballerina’s Tale goes behind the scenes of Misty’s life, illuminating the grueling, competitive, and amazing world of professional ballet.  Highly rated.

Hail Caesar! is the latest film from the Coen brothers.  This highly atmospheric (40s/50s era) movie showcases the Golden Age of Hollywood in all its bizarre glory!

Jim Gaffigan:Obsessed.  Gaffigan’s latest stand-up special had me laughing out loud.  Who can’t love this guy?!  He’s at his best, And it’s appropriate for the whole family to watch. 

Jafar Panahi’s Taxi – As Jafar drives a yellow cab through the vibrant streets of Tehran (2016), picking up a diverse group of passengers in a single day, each man, woman, and child candidly expresses his or her own view of the world while being interviewed by the curious and gracious driver. 

The VVitch “delivers a deeply unsettling exercise in slow-building horror.”  This movie received a 91% on the “Tomatometer” as a “stylized New England folk tale” that you won’t soon forget.

Patrick’s Day is a multi-award-winning independent film.  When a young man with mental health issues becomes intimate with a suicidal flight attendant, his obsessive mother enlists a dysfunctional cop to separate them. 

We’re never too old to love a great animated film.  Yes, you can find Disney’s Zootopia in the adult library!  98% fresh!
