DVD: “Lincoln,” “Killing Them Softly,” “Bob’s New Suit,” And More!


Four score and seven years ago, there was no home entertainment. Fortunately, there is now—and we can re-live how President Lincoln navigated political and personal life (but not an assassin’s bullet, sadly) during his final days in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. Another assassin, played by Brad Pitt, is tasked to dole out justice in wholly fictitious crime dramedy, Killing Them Softly.

Queer filmmakers head up a pair of indies out this week: A talking suit plagues a family, including a transgender son, in Bob’s New Suit. And West Hollywood is the backdrop for three gay friends’ grabs at happiness in The Wishmakers.
