On Demand DVD New Releases May 13-19

Cloud Atlas is certainly the most ambitious of this week’s titles. With a budget of over $100,000,000, the film is one of the most expensive independent films made to date. Nominated for a Golden Globe award, the film involves cast members playing multiple roles, covering different time periods, races and even sexes, and was shot with two separate but parallel filming units, with unique crews for each. On Demand DVD New Releases May 13-19
