Emma Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis and Will Poulter in “We’re the Millers.”
“CRYSTAL FAIRY,” Michael Cera, Gaby Hoffman. Michael Cera has amassed an impressive resume for a guy with fairly limited dramatic range, but put him in the right role and he’ll run with it like few actors can. Writer-director Sebastian Silva (“The Maid”) may have secured Cera his best-fitting role yet in Jamie, an American traveling in Chile on a singular quest: to track down the legendary San Pedro cactus, ingest it and get profoundly high in the desert. What Jamie doesn’t count on is drunkenly inviting free spirit Crystal Fairy (Hoffman, “Louie”) along for the ride, an initially harmless addition whose unpredictable behavior becomes a constant thorn in Jamie’s side. Not rated. Running time: 1:39. Suggested retail price: $24.98; Blu-ray $29.98.
“HANNAH ARENDT,” Barbara Sukowa, Janet McTeer. Skillful and riveting biopic from director Margarethe von Trotta (“Rosenstrasse”) with Sukowa (“Europa”) turning in one of the best performances of the year as Arendt, the philosopher and political columnist for The New Yorker whose writing about the war crimes trial of Nazi Adolf Eichmann garnered her acclaim and vitriol in equal measure. Not rated. Running time: 1:53. Suggested retail price: $29.99; Blu-ray $34.99.
