Synopsis

Elles tells the story of Anne, a well-off, Paris-based mother of two who works as an investigative journalist for ELLE Magazine. As Anne discovers the world of student prostitution and begins to get close to Alicja and Charlotte, two young women who finance their studies by moonlighting as sex workers, she begins to question her most intimate convictions about money, family, sex and her own identity.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for September 11th, 2012

September 11th, 2012

This week is again dominated with TV on DVD releases, including more than half the first page on Amazon.com's list of best-selling new releases. There is one first-run release that is doing really well: Snow White and the Huntsman - Extended Edition on DVD or Blu-ray Combo Pack. It's worth picking up, but not Pick of the Week material.

Limited Releases: Hunting for the Best

April 27th, 2012

It's a very busy week for limited releases with a dozen films on this week's list. This includes a number of films earning overwhelmingly positive reviews or earning some pre-release buzz.
