Men and Baseball On DVD

Film released to DVD this week are at 2 ends of the spectrum.

Winter Solstice is a wonderful drama about men who have suffered loss, and how they deal. The dialogue is sparse and the actions strong. I saw this film at the Tribeca Film Festival, and the writer/director, Josh Sternfeld, addressed this simply by saying, men are of few words. For a woman who babbles, incessantly at times, it was a little frustrating to watch, but I got the message. A good film!

On the other end of the spectrum we have Fever Pitch, which is all about communication and expressing passions and desires. Jimmy Fallon's character is a rabid Red Sox fan who has to figure out how to fit his love for a woman into his life. An entertaining film, watch with a Red Sox fan if you can!!!
