Race Out and Rent

If you're looking for light comedic fare, it's not a bad week in the DVD release world. You've got men behaving like adolescents in I Love You, Man, and then you've got men turning into adolescents in 17 Again.

But if you're keen on digging a little deeper, don't miss Laurent Cantet's French-language drama The Class. It's a movie about a teacher in another country, but it's also a story that translates perfectly to the American experience -- one not necessarily about the teacher as perfect source of inspiration, but about a teacher in a rapidly-changing world who's barely keeping his head above water. While the director may not be making an actual documentary, his approach makes it feel as vital, real and of-the-moment as if these students were going to be sitting behind real desks tomorrow.
