With this week’s roundup, we welcome VOD—a.k.a. video-on-demand —titles to the party. This week it’s all about families: In Sexual Chronicles of a French Family, a frisky teen and his bisexual brother suddenly find that sex is no longer a taboo topic at home. A dinner-table coming out kicks off laughter and drama in the Italian import Loose Cannons. And Ezra Miller (above) is the creepy son from Hell in We Need to Talk About Kevin.
For theater queens, we’ve got Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom sequel, Love Never Dies, and Ralph Fiennes starring in and directing a modernized version of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus.
Plus, what would the column be without another David De Coteau title? (Leave snarky responses to that question in the comments section!)
FIRST: A coming-out gets hilariously upstaged in Loose Cannons
