Several DVDs of
gay and lesbian interest make their debut on Tuesday,
October 18. Alice Wu's Sundance hit Saving Face (Sony Pictures Home Entertainment) hilariously
explores the complicated relationship between a
closeted Chinese-American lesbian and her mother,
particularly after the mother finds herself pregnant by a
man whose identity she refuses to reveal. Family
relationships are also at the center of Grand Sons (Strand Releasing Home Video), about the rapport
between a 24-year-old man and his grandmother.
Finally, there's Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat (Fox Home Entertainment), starring queer icon
Tallulah Bankhead as a journalist struggling for
survival after a Nazi U-boat torpedoes the ship on which
she was traveling.
