New DVD/VOD Tuesday, Feb. 19


  • Warner Bros.
  • Argo

A CIA “exfiltration” specialist (Ben Affleck) devises a scheme to free American refugees trapped in 1979 Iran: filming a fake Hollywood sci-fi movie and sneaking them out as the crew. Based on true events and awful fashion. (Warner Bros.)

Anna Karenina
Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Emily Watson, Kelly Macdonald and several other proper British actors star in Tolstoy’s epic tale of love, adultery, family and great hair in 19th-century Russian high society. Just ignore the accents. (Focus Features)

Game of Thrones: Season 2

The Pill
(Not) just in time for Valentine’s Day: After a night of unprotected sex, Fred (Noah Bean) pretends to have romantic feelings for Mindy (Rachel Boston) for 12 hours until he’s sure she’s taken her second morning-after pill. Aw, sweet! (Passion River)
