“Betty Blue,” Bette Davis, Oscar-Nominated “Cold War,” and More on Criterion Collection’s November Slate

The Criterion Collection’s November slate leads off November 12 with a 4K restoration of Greg Mottola’s 1996 comedy The Daytrippers (DVD: $29.95, Blu-ray: $39.95), starring Hope Davis, Parker Posey, Anne Meara, Liev Schreiber, and Stanley Tucci in a tale centered on the case of a wife who turns to her strong-willed family when she discovers a love letter written to her husband by an unknown paramour. Coming November 19 is a three-hour director’s cut of Jean-Jacques Beineix’s intoxicating 1986 arthouse smash Betty Blue (DVD: 2 discs, $29.95; Blu-ray: $39.95), in which an easygoing would-be novelist (Jean-Hugues Anglade) begins a love affair with the tempestuous Betty (Béatrice Dalle) in a sunbaked French beach town. Also arriving November 19 is the home video debut of Paweł Pawlikowski’s sweeping, Oscar-nominated 2018 drama Cold War (DVD: $29.95, Blu-ray: $39.95), a tumultuous, passionate 15-year love story between a folk song-collecting musician (Tomasz Kot) and a captivating young singer (Joanna Kulig). Slated for November 26 is Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s beloved 1950 theater-world satire All About Eve (DVD: 2 discs, $29.95; Blu-ray: 2 discs, $39.95), featuring Bette Davis in an acid-tongued comeback performance as a Broadway legend who soon realizes that her supposed admirer (Anne Baxter) intends to use her as a stepping-stone to stardom. Also scheduled for November 26 and starring Bette Davis is Irving Rapper’s swoon-inducing 1942 melodrama Now, Voyager (DVD: 2 discs, $29.95; Blu-ray: $39.95)—debuting on Blu-ray—featuring the screen icon as a nervous spinster who looks for love and independence on a South American cruise.
