This week’s video selection offers a fascinating mix.

The Help is an offbeat release telling of an aspiring writer returning from college to her hometown, determined to interview the habits of African-American maids who work for privileged whites.  Emma Stone plays the writer in a film that caused quite a stir in its initial release.

Harrison Ford and Keith Carradine are featured in Cowboys & Aliens, dealing with a western town’s fears of an invasion from outer space.

Alfred Hitchcock’s 1938 classic of espionage and adventure, The Lady Vanishes, is out in a slick, high-definition transfer.

And three retired Mossad agents, one played by Helen Mirren, recall their younger selves in The Debt, a thriller dealing with the capture of a Nazi war criminal.
