Here’s what’s new for home viewing on video-on-demand, Netflix, Amazon Prime and other streaming services beginning the week of Friday, Feb. 26.
Pay-Per-View / Video-On-Demand
Prep for the Academy Awards with two best-picture nominees: “Spotlight,” up for six awards and a contender for original screenplay, and “Room,” with four nominations, including one for Brie Larson, a favorite for best actress. Both rated R.
“Spotlight,” the story of The Boston Globe reporters who uncovered the Catholic Church’s cover-up of child molestation by priests, features a superb cast (led by Oscar nominees Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams) and crisp but unassuming direction.
“Room,” the stirring drama of a young mother (Larson) who devotes herself to nurturing the spirit of her young son while held captive, transforms a potential horror story into a celebration of love and courage.
