DVDs at the Co-op

The Lobster: As strange as it is thrillingly ambitious, The Lobster is definitely an acquired taste ― savory cinematic treat. In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods. One of the funniest dark comedies we've seen. You'll want it to never end, but oh, it does.

Hello, My Name Is Doris: A self-help seminar inspires a sixty-something woman to romantically pursue her younger co-worker. Hello, My Name Is Doris is immeasurably elevated by Sally Field's remarkable performance in the title role, which overpowers a surfeit of stereotypical indie quirk.

Remember: With help from a fellow Holocaust survivor (Martin Landau), a widower (Christopher Plummer) who struggles with memory loss embarks on a cross-country odyssey to find the former Nazi responsible for the deaths of their family members.
