New on DVD & Blu-ray "Any Day Now" What's It About? Alan Cumming stars in a true-story family drama about a gay couple that takes in a mentally challenged boy but must fight the courts to be recognized as his best caretakers.

"The Central Park Five" What's It About? Ken Burns co-directs this documentary looking at an infamous 1989 crime and the five young men that were wrongfully convicted. Even though it took place in the past, the story is just as gripping now to watch unfold. In or Out: IN.

"Pawn" What's It About? Ray Liotta, Forest Whitaker, and Michael Chiklis are just some of the names in this hostage thriller involving dirty cops and two-bit crooks. If you've seen one of these movies, you've seen them all. In or Out: For fans of the genre only.

Matt Damon and John Krasinski co-write and star under Gus Van Sant ("Good Will Hunting") in a small-town drama about a big, corporate salesman and an environmental activist fighting over fracking rights, a small town, and the affections of a woman.

"Wasted on the Young" What's It About?
