Why so serious-ah? This week’s home entertainment picks are led by serious, weighty works, although there is a dose of comedy at the end of the rainbow.

Patrick Wang’s acclaimed, emotional indie, In The Family, sees an Asian-American gay man struggle to keep his child, while a closeted Peruvian is literally haunted by his homosexuality in Undertow.

A drug dealer ends up in a mess o’ trouble in the English-language remake of Nicolas Winding Refn’s Pusher series.

Yet the only thing serious in comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is how hardcore the Seigfried and Roy-esque outfits and wigs are!
