New DVD/VOD releases Tuesday, Aug. 12


Frankie & Alice
  • Frankie & Alice

Frankie & Alice
A 1970s stripper (Halle Berry) struggles with dissociative identity disorder and keeping her other two personalities—a 7-year-old girl and a Southern white racist(!)—under control. Inspired by a true story and a fantastic afro. (Lionsgate)

Hateship Loveship
A young girl (Hailee Steinfeld) forges romantic e-mails between her widowed father (Guy Pearce) and their lonely weirdo housekeeper (Kristen Wiig) with sad-music-montage results. Also starring Nick Nolte as ... the voice of reason? (IFC Films)

Low Winter Sun: Season 1
Remember that cop show that AMC tried to force you to watch by only showing promos for next week's Breaking Bad during the episodes? That was then rejected out of spite and subsequently canceled? It was actually pretty good. (Anchor Bay)

Muppets Most Wanted
On a European tour, the Muppets get caught up in an international crime caper headed by Kermit's evil double and his evil-er sidekick (Ricky Gervais). Also starring Tina Fey, Ty Burrell and nobody else from that other Muppets movie. (Disney)

In his 74th straight-to-DVD release this year, Nicholas Cage stars as a father whose daughter has been taken (but not, as per the lawyers, Taken), so he tracks the scum down with a unique and violent set of skills (again, talk to the lawyers). (RLJ)
