THE SCREENING ROOM

DVD: Going Down In La-La Land, Flirting With Disaster, Kevin Richardson Swings, And More!

The Casserole Club
($19.99 DVD, Breaking Glass Pictures)

This scandalous late-’60s suburban drama seems somewhat dated in our post-Mad Men world but director Steve Balderson beefs it up with interesting twists and solid performances. Written by Frankie Krainz and starring former Backstreet Boy Kevin Scott Richardson, Club peels back the facade of backyard BBQs and casserole parties to reveal the ravenous sexual appetites of five childless couples—including a steamy encounter between a closeted husband and a younger slice of beefcake.  DVD extras include a making-off featurette.
