DVD Wolfe Price: $19.95 Available: June 30, 2015

Synopsis:

Saugatuck Cures is a family comedy set in picturesque Saugatuck, Michigan. There we meet Maggie Callaghan (Judith Chapman, The Young and the Restless), a widowed bed-and-breakfast owner, who’s secretly dealing with a second round of cancer. Maggie’s well-meaning, meddlesome friends let the truth slip when her rivaling children visit for Thanksgiving. Maggie’s openly gay son, Drew (Max Adler of GLEE), and affluent, religious daughter, Penelope, have yet another falling out over their mother’s inability to pay for a new, experimental treatment.

Determined, but with no idea how to raise the money his mother needs, Drew follows the harebrained advice of his loyal, screwball best friend Brett (Danny Mooney, The Ides of March). The two embark on a road trip, traveling from town to town and church to church posing as ex-gay ministers “curing” homosexuals of their “affliction” and dodging trouble along the way. Will this duo’s hilariously misguided plan be able to save Maggie?

“Queering the May-December courtship of Harold and Maude!” — Toronto International Film Festival

From the Director of Otto, Or; Up With Dead People, Hustler White, The Raspberry Reich, and L.A. Zombie

In this wry “reverse Lolita” tale, 18-year-old Lake discovers he has an unusual attraction for elderly men. Fate lands him a job at an assisted-living facility where he develops an intimate relationship with Mr. Peabody. Upon discovering that the clients are being over-medicated to make them more manageable, Lake weans Mr. Peabody off his medication and helps him escape, resulting in a road trip that deepens their bond. The always-provocative Bruce LaBruce returns with a delicately perverse romantic comedy that is both darkly humorous and emotionally heartfelt.

Ernst and Robi

“We do not go to see films very often, maybe once every month. But when we do we choose carefully and it usually is a film we remember for years. We remember a great wonderful work of art, and this is Brokeback Mountain. We also remember and will always do so: Priscilla. And we do the same with two films made by the Swiss film-director Marcel Gisler: Rosie and De Fögi isch en Souhund (Fogi is a Bastard).”

Watch Ernst and Robi and their amazing true story in the acclaimed drama/documentary, The Circle — on DVD and digital from Wolfe.

“Subtle and startling.” — AfterEllen.com

Featuring a quartet of talented stars, this under-stated drama from prolific lesbian filmmaker Monika Treut deftly unfolds the coming-of-age of rebellious teen Alex (popular German TV star, Ceci Chuh).

As Nina maintains her boundaries and tries to help Alex find purpose and maturity at this crucial moment in her life, the arrival of privileged young equestrian Kathy (Alissa Wilms) presents new challenges and opportunities for Alex as she grapples with her longing for love and connection. A beautiful drama.
