              Eddie Carbone is a longshoreman and a straightforward man. For Eddie, it's a privilege to take in his wife's cousins, straight off the boat from Italy. But, as his niece begins to fall for one of them, it's clear that it's not just, as Eddie claims, that he's strange, sissy, and ...careless for her, but that something is wrong in a way he can't face.

              Synecdoche, New York (Blu-ray)

              Actor Hoffman, Philip Seymour; Keener, Catherine; Director Kaufman, Charlie; Actor Williams, Michelle; Watson, Emily

              From the writer of Adaptation, Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Theater director Caden Cotard (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is mounting a new play. His life catering to suburban blue-hairs at the local regional theater in Schenectady, New York is looking... bleak. His wife Adele (Catherine Keener) has left him to pursue her painting in Berlin, taking their young daughter Olive with her. Worried about the transience of his life, he leaves his home behind. He gathers an ensemble cast into a warehouse in New York City, hoping to create a work of brutal honesty. He directs them in a celebration of the mundane, instructing each to live out their constructed lives in a growing mockup of the city outside. The years rapidly fold into each other, and Caden buries himself deeper into his masterpiece, but the textured tangle of real and theatrical relationships blurs the line between the world of the play and that of Caden's town deteriorating reality.

              Doubt (Other)

              Actor Streep, Meryl; Hoffman, Philip Seymour; Adams, Amy; Davis, Viola; Foster, Joseph

              Set in 1964 at St. Nicholas Church in the Bronx, Fr. Brendan Flynns (Philip Seymour Hoffman) progressive views and charismatic presence have won him the respect and admiration of the congregation. At the parish school, principal Sister Aloysius Beauvier (Meryl Streep) keeps her s...tudents in line with old-fashioned fear and intimidation. When young Sister James (Amy Adams) shares with Sister Aloysius her concern that that Father Flynn has taken an interest in twelve-year-old Donald Miller (Joseph Foster), the school's first Negro student, the older nun launches her own investigation. Determined to protect every one of her charges, Sister Aloysius attempts to use the evidence she discovers to have Flynn removed from the school. John Patrick Shanleys finely shaded script takes audiences through a spectrum of truth, emotion and belief, and asks if any decision is ever free from doubt.
