Cloudburst

($24.95 DVD; Wolfe)

In the latest from acclaimed gay Canuck director Thom Fitzgerald, Oscar winners Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker play Stella and Dot, a lesbian couple of 31 years. When the latter’s daughter threaten to split the aging pair apart by banishing Dot to a nursing home, the lovers high-tail it from Maine to Canada, where they can get legally married and live out their years in bliss. En route, a la Thelma and Louise, they pick up a young male hitchhiker, and find their road trip punctuated with laughs, poignancy, and superb acting. Extras include actor interviews and a behind the scenes featurette.
