A portrayal of contemporary life in Russia through the coming-of-age story of Masha, a middle-class, 19-year-old Russian girl and a member of Nashi, a political youth organization that is connected with the Kremlin. Extremely ambitious, the young Masha quickly ascends to the top of Nashi, which allows her to become the protégé of the Minister of Youth. She is rewarded for her loyalty with an apartment while attending Moscow State University. She begins to question her involvement with Nashi when she learns that a radical faction within the organization is supposedly responsible for attacks against anyone who criticizes Putin. This leads her to question the organization, and she meets a journalist, Oleg Khasin, with whom she becomes close friends despite their strongly opposing views. However, when Oleg is attacked, Masha finds herself at odds with Nashi, and realizes she must take a stand.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for December 25th, 2012

December 22nd, 2012

This year, Christmas day lands on the Tuesday, so it should come as no surprise there are not a lot of DVDs or Blu-ray coming out that day, or over the next week. (There are some films in this week's list that are definitely fillers, plus two late reviews, and I still could only get to a dozen releases.) However, there are some coming out during the week that are of interest and there are two that would be contenders for Pick of the Week in all but the busiest weeks. Justified: The Complete Third Season on DVD or Blu-ray is one such contender. However, in the end I went with Looper on DVD or Blu-ray as Pick of the Week. More...
