<em>Away We Go; The Wizard of Oz: Ultimate Collector’s Edition; Traffik</em>
Away We Go(Focus, $29.98)Stars John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph “give momentum” to this offbeat romantic comedy, said USA Today. Their quest to find the best place to raise their child alternates between “broad comedy and poignancy,” but at last arrives at “an emotionally satisfying place.”
The Wizard of Oz: Ultimate Collector’s Edition(Warner Home Video, $64.95)In this restored edition of the classic, “the ruby slippers are at their rubiest,” and Emerald City “couldn’t gleam much greener,” said The Washington Post. Sixteen hours of bonus material as well as a “lovely” hardcover book are included.
Traffik(Acorn Media, $39.99)The original British miniseries was “less stylish” than Steven Soderbergh’s 2000 film adaptation, but it also had “more nuance,” said All Movie Guide. The clear-eyed view of the narcotics trade, along with scenes of South Asia should impress even the movie’s most “rabid fans.”
