DVD: “Joy,” “Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party,” “Waiting In The Wings: The Musical,” & More!

by Lawrence Ferber May 03, 2016

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in Joy

It’s a week of revolution in home entertainment – at least as far as the steps these characters take to make their dreams come true, from a real-life housewife turned inventor in Joy (above) to the queer teenage son of a preacher in Henry Gamble’s Birthday to a male stripper and musical theater geek pushing their limits in Waiting In The Wings: The Musical to a vain actress who will do anything for immortality in 1992 cult classic Death Becomes Her.

Without further ado, scroll down for the trailers and details!



($39.99 Blu-ray, $29.98 DVD; 20th Century Fox)

Director David O. Russell re-teams with the stars of his Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle — Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, and Bradley Cooper — for this disjointed, somewhat gonzo tale about a totally dysfunctional family and the woman at its center, Joy, whose miracle mop invention launched her into the stratosphere. Extras include a featurette and Times Talk Q&A with Lawrence and Russell.


Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party

($24.95 DVD; Wolfe)

Taking place on the 17th birthday of Henry Gamble, writer/director Stephen Cone’s (The Wise Kids) latest drama sees the titular son of an evangelical preacher grapple with his sexuality and other personal issues. A pool party, this birthday sees guests including a gay friend with en eye (and more) for Henry and some adults from dad’s congregation, and no doubt more fireworks than just candles.


Waiting In The Wings: The Musical

($24.99 DVD; Border2Border)

Winner of numerous LGBT film festival prizes, director Jenn Page and writer Jeffrey A. Johns’ musical comedy sees a hot stripper, Tony, and a dorky musical theater lover, Anthony, at the wrong end of a casting error due to their similar names. The former ends up in an Off-Broadway musical while the latter, of course, lands a stripper gig. Zaniness, scant wardrobes, and of course songs follow!


Death Becomes Her: Collector’s Edition

($34.93 Blu-ray; Shout! Factory)

Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn, Bruce Willis and Isabella Rosellini camped and vamped it up in this effects-filled darkly comic 1992 cult classic, now receiving a Blu-ray revival courtesy Shout! Factory. Streep and Hawn play friends turned rivals who vie for the affections of Willis’ plastic surgeon guru. Their catfight soon gains a supernatural twist when Rossellini’s mysterious vamp brings immortality into the fray. Extras include a new retrospective featurette and a vintage making of doc.
