Why 'Marley' Tops Indiewire's DVD/Blu-ray Picks This Week


#3. "Prairie Love"

Dusty Bias' Sundance comedy "Prairie Love" follows a drifter traveling through the North Dakota prairie who meets an unconscious man in the middle of the road. Yep, you read right. This stranger, on his way to meet his recently released from prison penpal (and girlfriend), faces a problem: the drifter wishes to steal his identity. Go here to read our interview with Bias where he discusses his influences, the story and what audiences can expect from his comedy.

Extras: The short film "A Family Portrait" by Joseph Pierce.

#4. "Killing Bono"

Nick Hamm's comedy, which is based on true events, tells the tale of two aspiring rockstars (Neil & Ivan McCormick) who watch their school buds, U2, become the next "big" thing in the music world. What a disappointment, right? Go here to see Hamm share with us a clip from the film.

Extras: A making of featurette and the theatrical trailer.


#5. "Bel Ami"

We know him best as the sexy-sultry vampire Edward Cullen, but Robert Pattinson made time to switch things up a bit in Declan Dennellan and Nick Ormerod's drama, "Bel Ami." Pattinson plays a poor ex-sergeant who, in an attempt to better his dismal life, exploits the wealthy to climb up the ladder that is nineteenth-century Parisian society. Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci play the three lovely women who help him move on up.

Extras: A behind the scenes featurette that includes interviews with all the main players.
