What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday

All of the new DVD releases hit stores (and Netflix) on Tuesdays. So each week in What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday, I sort through the best of the batch and tell you what to add to your queue.

Blood Diamond
Nominated for five Academy Awards, Blood Diamond stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Danny Archer, a white African involved in the illegal diamond trade that funds African warfare. When he learns that native fisherman Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou) has a rare pink diamond in hiding, he agrees to help Solomon rescue his son, who has been forced into military service. The film chronicles a brutal time in Africa's political history, along with bringing to light the controversial business of selling "conflict diamonds."

Come Early Morning
Written and directed by Joey Lauren Adams (who played Amy in Chasing Amy, along with small parts in Big Daddy and The Break-Up), Come Early Morning is an indie film with a strong female protagonist. Ashley Judd plays Lucille, a tough construction worker in a small Southern town who spends her free time drinking at the bar and enjoying one-night stands. When a new man (Jeffrey Donovan) wants something more, she struggles with commitment issues, perhaps stemming from the strained relationship she has with her emotionally distant father (Scott Wilson). I like the "making of" story: Joey Lauren Adams got tired of the limited roles for women in Hollywood, so she made a film that appeals to women but wouldn't be lumped into the "chick flick" category.
