Two from the Criterion Collection - The War Room and a Lean/Coward box set

This Happy Breed, available in the new David Lean/Noël Coward set from Criterion.
March brought another round of excellent Criterion releases, including D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus's fascinating account of the 1992 Bill Clinton presidential campaign, led by magnetic duo James Carville and George Stephanopoulos. I review the Blu-ray at Blogcritics.

At Cinema Sentries, I review David Lean Directs Noël Coward, a well-appointed four-disc Blu-ray set compiling Lean's early work alongside Coward. The gorgeous transfers, sourced from 2008 BFI restorations, make it a must-own.
