Films in Brief: 4/18/14

It’s been a busy week with all of us gearing up for our massive Hot Docs coverage, but here’s a look at what else is playing on local screens this week that we haven’t gotten around to reviewing yet, including the Disneynature documentary Bears, the romantic drama The Face of Love, the Canadian teen road flick Hold Fast, the psychological thriller Stress Position, the literary minded Meetings with a Young Poet, and the ballet documentary Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq.

The New Old: Sowing Season

This week, our archival DVD column looks at various stages of growing up with looks at Good Will Hunting, High Fidelity, and Adventures in Babysitting, and a look at the volatile nature of change in The Proposition.


We have not one, but two Wilfred: The Complete First Season Blu-ray sets to give away! Based on the acclaimed Australian comedy series of the same name, the FX series stars Elijah Wood as a down-on-his-luck lawyer who forms a unique friendship with his neighbor's pet dog Wilfred - a beer-chugging, foul-mouthed Australian bloke in a furry suit (played by Jason Gann).
