DVD Releases: Ides of March, Abduction Shine

by at .

An Oscar contender and a Twilight star’s breakout role come home on DVD and Blu-Ray this week, along with a few films that had limited theatrical release and hope to find an audience on home video. George Clooney’s The Ides of March is the week’s best bet. But, Abduction, Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star and Dirty Girl should each find their niche now that they’re out on DVD and Blu-Ray.

The Ides of March: George Clooney’s directorial triumph comes home on DVD and Blu-Ray, allowing millions more to have a chance to see it. That should only help its Oscar chances. Nominated for a slew of Golden Globe Awards and now BAFTAs, Clooney’s masterwork is as good on the small screen as it is on the big screen. Clooney plays a flawed Pennsylvania governor who appears to be a lock for the Democratic nomination for president. Ryan Gosling steals the movie as his aid who has more passion for what’s right than is the norm in national politics and it comes back to hurt him. Evan Rachel Wood, Paul Giamatti and Jeffrey Wright co-star in a movie that makes politics thrilling.
