DVD: “Side Effects,” “Struck By Lightning,” “Yossi,” And More!


It’s a pretty darned queer, and international, week in home entertainment.

Glee‘s Chris Colfer both wrote and stars in high school flick Struck By Lightning, while one of the hot young gay twink Israeli soldiers from 2002’s Yossi & Jagger is revisited 10 years later in the drama Yossi.

The burgeoning sexuality of a young European hipster drives the atmospheric Atomic Age, while the American slow-burn thriller Side Effects sees the danger that a prescription medication can bring.
