DVD/Blu-ray Releases — 4/10/2012

New options for your home viewing this week:

Meryl Streep won an Oscar for playing Margaret Thatcher, the first and only female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, in The Iron Lady.  It’s a movie that must revolve around her performance, which is a fine impersonation but not much more (The makeup does most of the work), because the narrative itself is a messy collection of flashbacks–contrived prop setups bring us into them–that don’t reveal any significant information about Thatcher.  It’s meant to be tragedy, and it is tragic but for reasons that have nothing to do with the story at hand.  My review is here.  Available on DVD and Blu-ray.
