I’ve just updated this week’s New Titles in Snell Library, and I noticed we’ve got a nice crop of new DVDs. If you like biopics, there’s Temple Grandin, about an autistic woman who becomes a pioneer in animal psychology. Hipsters? Catch Julie Christie in Darling (1965), about an English model and her descent into corruption. Or for those who like the classics, watch Ninotchka (1939), a lighthearted comedy about visitors to Paris who ascend into corruption (Garbo laughs!). For date night, borrow Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, based on a graphic novel about what it takes to win the girl of your dreams. A more serious take on love would be Vincere (“Win”, 2009) about the love between Benito Mussolini and Ida Dalser (in Italian), or Un Coeur en Hiver (“A Heart in Winter”, 2006), centering on the love triangle between a concert violinist, her lover, and his best friend (in, you guessed it, French). Working your way through this year’s Oscar nominees? Our newest arrival is the comedy-drama The Kids Are All Right (2010), with great acting from Annette Bening and Julianne Moore as lesbian parents of two teenage kids. Another family drama, Please Give (2010), explores the dynamics of a Manhattan family waiting for their neighbor to die so they can take over and renovate her apartment. Every week we update our lists of New Titles. You can browse the lists, or subscribe to the RSS feed, depending on your interests. Choose a subject like mathematics, or you can view new videos or new titles from our high-interest award-winning titles in the first floor Hub reading area.

Oooh, I’ve been wanting to see Please Give. This is a great list!
