Are you looking for a good movie to watch? The library adds new DVDs to our collection almost every day – including some of the latest and most popular new releases. Here are some that we added this week.
Unbroken (rated PG-13). This epic drama is based on the true story of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini. During World War II this incredible man survived on a raft for 47 days after his plane crashed only to be captured by the Japanese. He was taken to a prisoner-of-war camp where he endured torture and deprivation for two years. His amazing story of the resilient power of the human spirit is sure to inspire.
Annie (rated PG). This is a fresh, contemporary version of the classic Broadway hit by the same name. It stars Academy Award nominee Quvenzhané Wallis as the happy but tough foster child who has had a hard life dealing with her mean foster mother played by Cameron Diaz. Her life changes drastically when she is taken in by an ambitious tycoon and mayoral candidate as a campaign strategy to help him win votes. He thinks he is her guardian angel, but it may be the other way around.
Interstellar (rated PG-13). Matthew McConaughey stars in this futuristic drama in which the Earth is very close to running out of food. He joins a team of pioneers who will attempt a journey beyond this galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future among the stars. He must leave his family behind and face uncertain and dangerous situations in order to have a chance at saving the ones he loves.
