Why 'Moonrise Kingdom' Tops Indiewire's 5 Blu-ray/DVD Picks This Week

#4. "Last Ride"

Hugo Weaving gives a commanting turn in "Last Ride," a road movie set in the South Australian outback that centers on ex-jailbird fugitive father Kev (Weaing), who is on the run from the law with his 10-year old son Chook (newcomer Tom Russell) in tow. The film marks the directorial debut of Australian filmmaker Glendyn Ivin, whose short "Cracker Bag" won the Palme d'Or for Best Short at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival.

Extras: Director commentary; behind-the-scenes featurettes; two short films; and a documentary, "Seven Emu: This is Where We Live."


#5. "Chely Wright: Wish Me Away"

Over a three-year period, award-winning filmmakers Bobbie Birleffi and Beverly Kopf followed country music star Chely Wright as she honed her plan to publicly come out as gay. The result of their time spent together is the moving and intimate documentary "Chely Wright: Wish Me Away," which provides an in-depth portrait of the artist who shattered cultural and religious stereotypes within her home city of Nashville. In addition to tracking Wright's tough journey, the film also chronicles the aftermath of her decision in her hometown and within the LGBT community.

Extras: Deleted scenes.
