Women, Webs and Wonder in DVD

Three very different genres of film are out in DVD this week.

The foreign film Volver is a creative story of an interesting woman. Penelope Cruz turns in an outstanding performance.

The family film, Charlotte's Web, is a strong portrayal of the classic story of loyalty and friendship. This version is heartfelt and pretty clever.

The historic drama The Good Shepherd depicts the early days of the CIA. Star studded, this is a strong drama, with interesting insight to the effects of power and intelligence.

A good week for rentals!

I am a history buff so "The Good Shepherd" was a great movie for me. At times I thought it got a bit long but then something would happen that would make it really interesting.

I really want to see Volver. I'll have to pick it up soon.

Volver is well worth seeing, I was surprised that it turns into a thriller. Good stuff!
