Chely Wright: Wish Me Away
($27.95 DVD, First Run Features)

Out lesbian directors Bobbie Birleffi and Beverly Kopf chronicle Chely Wright’s emotional and spiritual journey out of the Nashville closet, from her years as a deeply closeted country star who contemplated suicide, to her carefully strategized public coming out and emergence as a liberated and happily married activist. It’s a fascinating, moving and sometimes humorous documentary—if you haven’t heard Wright’s music before, this is an excellent intro. Extras include the featurette “Chely At Home With Her Wife.”
