Blue Jasmine; In a World…; The Wicker Man

Blue Jasmine
(Sony, $31)
Oscar contender Cate Blanchett delivered one of 2013’s “finest, most complex” performances in this Woody Allen film about a socialite laid low by the imprisonment of her financier husband, said USA Today. For Allen, it was his “most thoughtful, emotionally resonant work in decades.”

In a World…
(Sony, $31)
Lake Bell had been stuck in secondary comic roles before she wrote, directed, and starred in this 2013 comedy about voice-over artists, said the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “A fresh and funny spoof of the movie business,” Bell’s project also represents “a real-life triumph within it.”

The Wicker Man
(Lionsgate, $20)
This 1973 British horror classic “gets better with age,” said the Toronto Star. In the new director’s cut, Edward Woodward still stars as a Scottish police sergeant investigating a girl’s disappearance on a remote island, and the tale still “finds its chills in a clash between religions.”
