On DVD This Week: Oscar Winners Room and The Danish Girl, Plus Creed and More

by | February 29, 2016 | Comments

Fresh off their wins at last night’s Academy Awards, both Room (which won Best Actress for Brie Larson’s performance) and The Danish Girl (Best Supporting Actress for Alicia Vikander) are now available to take home, as well as the Oscar-nominated Creed (poor Sly). After that, there’s also a couple of worthy indie dramas and another Oscar nominee for you to check out. Lastly, for those of you with swanky home theater setups, it’s worth noting that there are new 4K Ultra HD re-releases of movies like Mad Max: Fury Road, Sicario, The Lego Movie, and more, though we won’t talk about them here. Read on for details on the rest of the new releases:

This Certified Fresh documentary is a collection of interviews by the renegade Iranian director, who filmed conversations with his passengers while posing as a cab driver in Tehran. The film comes with an essay written about Panahi’s background and the forces that led to the creation of the film.
