THE SCREENING ROOM

OUT ON DVD: Extremely Loud, Jitters, Ungodly Love In The Seminarian, And More!

 


Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
($19.99 DVD, $29.99 Blu-ray, Warner Bros)

Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel comes to the screen as 9-year-old Oskar (Thomas Horn) grapples with both the death of his father in the 9/11 attacks and a nagging family mystery. The Oscar-nominated film is a sweet journey but the canvas which bisexual director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliott) is attempting to paint is a little to big for one film. The DVD extras are fairly meager, but the Blu-ray  includes a short doc on Von Sydow, a featurette about Horn, and a look at one 9/11 victim.
