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.

Here's a movie with two well-respected actors in the lead roles that got very little attention when it came out (I wrote about it awhile back as part of my Ben Kingsley slideshow but barely heard anything about it after that). And interestingly, the movie was generally well-received by critics. Based on the cast and description, I'm totally intrigued.

Elegy is adapted from Philip Roth's novella The Dying Animal and follows David Kepesh (Ben Kingsley), a successful New York author in his 60s who's settled into the fact that he has a strained relationship with his son (Peter Sarsgaard) and a purely sexual relationship with a middle-aged businesswoman (Patricia Clarkson). His life is then unhinged by the arrival of Consuela Castillo (Cruz), a woman who enrolls in one of his classes.

Special features include commentary with screenwriter Nicholas Meyer and a featurette titled "The Poetry of Elegy."

One more pick this week, so


Degrassi: The Next Generation: Season Seven
Before Shenae Grimes was smiling up a storm on the new 90210, she was on the new Degrassi, and now season seven is here for fans to own. I know a lot of fans of this teen drama reboot who will be stoked to pick up these DVDs.

According to Netlfix, the seventh season tackles heavy subject matter like smoking pot, suicide, sexual assault, — even cancer. Jeez! Also, "A fire at rival Lakehurst High means some new students are switching to Degrassi, forcing the gang to confront the aftermath of J.T.'s murder." So, murder too.

DVD extras include special commentary, bloopers, and deleted scenes.
