THE SCREENING ROOM

OUT ON DVD: Albert Nobbs, eCupid, AIDS Doc We Were Here, And More!

Gender benders, divas, the AIDS crisis and pedophiles feature in a something-for-everyone week of  diverse releases. The powerful documentary We Were Here looks back at how AIDS hit the gay mecca of San Francisco and how the local community responded, while Diana Ross: Live in Central Park brings a legendary New York City concert to DVD for the first time.

On the fictional front Glenn Close dons drag as a English manservant in Albert Nobbs, while Cameron Diaz and Catherine Kenner subvert gender norms in a different way in the souped-up Criterion BluRay release of Being John Malkovich. And though the Austrian drama Michael gives us a serious case of the creepies, you can always balance it with a viewing of  eCupid, the new grom-com (gay romantic comedy) from J.C. Calciano.
