New on DVD and Blu-ray
Bridget Jones’s Baby (Universal, $25)
A 10-year hiatus didn’t dull Bridget Jones’ appeal, said The Seattle Times. In the rom-com franchise’s surprisingly solid third installment, Bridget is 40-something and pregnant, and star Renée Zellweger remains “utterly charming” as she strings along the two men who could be the father.
Southside With You (Lionsgate, $20)
This “wonderfully romantic” dramatization of Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date in Chicago is one of two recent movies that reimagine the 44th president as a young man, said the Chicago Sun-Times. This one would be entrancing even if the protagonists were unknowns.
Little Men (Magnolia, $27)
A budding teenage friendship is tested when one boy’s Brooklyn family tries to evict the other. Directed by Ira Sachs, this “intimate gem of a film” features fine acting all around, said Rolling Stone. But especially from young Theo Taplitz and Michael Barbieri.
