Quests seem to be the theme of this week’s home-entertainment releases.: A rigid French policeman lives to track down a reformed thief in the big-budget adaptation of Les Miserables, while a CIA operative is willing to go move heaven and Earth to find Osama Bin Laden in Zero Dark Thirty. It’s a trek of a different kind in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (above) which kicks off Peter Jackson’s prequel trilogy to The Lord of the Rings.
Also out this week, the lesbian rock opera Strange Frame and Love Kills, the tale of a young gay man obsessed with a hottie who’s nothing but bad news.
