What to Watch This Weekend: July 26, 2013

We've got a couple of foreign film recommendations this week that definitely should not be missed.  And David finds out that one of his favorite movies is available for free streaming.

In Theaters: The Hunt
The Hunt is a gripping drama about a man battling the dark side of society's natural, but sometimes misguided, tendency to condemn the accused.  It's only playing in a few theaters but it's definitely worth the effort to see it.

On DVD: Starbuck
Although they're remaking the movie in English, the French version is phenomenal and definitely worth watching.  It tells the a touching and funny story about a man who finds out that he is the father of 500 kids and tries to secretly meet them.  

Streaming (Netflix and Amazon): Equilibrium
Sure, the reviews don't like this one, but it's one of my favorite movies.  It's an older movie, but Christian Bale puts on a great performance.  It came out around the same time as the Matrix with a similar feel, but I definitely think it is the better of the two movies. 

Streaming (HBO Go): Ruby Sparks
Ruby Sparks is worth the watch for Paul Dano's performance alone.  He is just stellar in this slightly dark romantic comedy.  I saw it in theaters and loved it so make sure to take advantage and see it free on HBO Go while you can.
