New DVD Releases: The Golden Compass, 27 Dresses and more
04.29.08 by REELZ
For those of you willing to tear yourselves away from playing Grand Theft Auto IV long enough to check out a flick, a crop of new DVD releases await. Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman star in the Oscar-winning (for visual effects) fantasy adventure The Golden Compass; Knocked Up's Katherine Heigl plays a perpetual bridesmaid in the romantic comedy 27 Dresses; and the Japanese assault on the Chinese city of Nanking is examined in the documentary Nanking.
Our pick for the week is The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Julian Schnabel's award-winning true story of Jean-Dominique Bauby, a French magazine editor forced to communicate by blinking his left eyelid after a debilitating stroke leaves him paralyzed.
