Blu-ray release ‘Trouble With the Curve’ puts Clint Eastwood back in front of the camera
“The Words” (Sony/Blu-ray, 2012, PG-13, $35.99, both the PG-13 and extended/unrated versions, featurettes). Fascinating idea, based loosely on a real incident involving a lost manuscript by Ernest Hemingway, is unfortunately an emotionally inert film. A successful author (Dennis Quaid) reads to an audience from his latest book, which we see acted out with Bradley Cooper playing a failed writer who finds an old, never-published transcript, passes it off as his own first novel, then feels enormous guilt. Jeremy Irons, Olivia Wilde and Zoe Saldna co-star. (Also on DVD, $39.99)
“The Good Doctor” (Magnolia, 2012, PG-13, $26.98, featurettes, trailer). Orlando Bloom is an insecure young doctor who craves approval from his superior, self-centered colleagues. Eventually he gets what he needs from a grateful young patient with a kidney infection, but when his self-esteem turns to obsession, he doesn’t want her to be released from the hospital. Odd, off-putting melodrama. (Also on Blu-ray, $29.98)
