New on DVD: ‘Black Nativity,’ ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,’ ‘Nut Job’

This rises above the standard holiday film because of the strong writing, acting and music. There’s always going to be sentimentality that comes with emotional redemption tales. But because director Kasi Lemmons quickly shows the film’s central figure has a good heart and is only facing bad decisions, the transformation that eventually comes feels real and grounded.
