Feature

New on DVD

Winter’s Bone(Lionsgate, $28)This “quietly powerful” indie drama is one of the year’s best films, said The Kansas City Star. Jennifer Lawrence stars as a 17-year-old who ventures into some of the shadier parts of Missouri’s Ozarks to find her meth-cooking father. The film is a “blend of noir thriller, character study,” and an almost-documentary-like portrait of a particular time and place.

Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy (Universal, $50)The first film in this time-traveling comedy-adventure trilogy holds up surprisingly well, said NPR.org. Its core is a “fundamentally good-natured, funny, genuinely inventive story” that puts nostalgia in perspective. In this new set, the “huge load” of extras includes a six-part documentary and a Q&A with star Michael J. Fox.

Chaplin at Keystone(Flicker Alley, $80)This collection of 35 films “beautifully illustrates” how Charlie Chaplin’s star was born, said the Los Angeles Times. In 1913, the 24-year-old British onetime vaudevillian signed with the Keystone Film Co. It was while working for Keystone that the silent-film pioneer “honed his craft and created his iconic character—the baggy-pants, bowler-hatted Tramp.”
