This Week In Home Entertainment: Frozen, American Hustle And More
Saving Mr. Banks Blu-rayTwo other narratives based on famous personalities are also being released this week. The first is Disney’s take on the relationship between Walt Disney and famous children’s author P.L. Travers who reluctantly collaborated on the studio’s hit film Mary Poppins. The touching narrative is coming to Blu-ray combo pack in a set that is filled with historical bonus features. But if "touching" and/or "Walt Disney" aren’t your thing, you can check out the life and times of Allen Ginsberg in this week’s other historical biopic, Kill Your Darlings.
John Krokidas’ directorial debut is a story of crime and deception, set to the tune of beatnik writing in the 1940s. It follows the early life of Allen Ginsberg (Radcliffe), his dealings with a problematic mother, obsession with a charming but dangerous college classmate, and a pervading need to break free of the establishment, egged on by a few other outstanding personalities. The dialogue in Killy Your Darlings is rich—though at times unbelievable—and the pace and the sway of the movie should invest those who are already interested in the life and times of Ginsberg and company.
Both flicks sport a slew of famous names. Saving Mr. Banks is headlined by Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson and Colin Farrell, while Kill Your Darlings sports Harry Potter wunderkind Daniel Radcliffe and The Amazing Spider-man 2 starrer Dane Dehaan. The ones we’ve covered aren’t the only releases this week, of course. You can check out some more of this week’s releases, below. Unless otherwise noted, sets are available on both Blu-ray and DVD.
