Is your DVR empty and sad? If so, here are a few things out this week that may be worth your time:
Release o’ the week: Save the Date. Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie star in this charming romantic comedy co-written by our pal Jeffrey Brown. (He provides illustrations for the flick as well.)
- Django Unchained. I’m eager to see Quentin Tarantino’s Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning epic, which, like every other QT movie, caused some controversy.

- Ethel. Filmmaker Rory Kennedy examines the life of her fascinating mother, Ethel Kennedy.
