"Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman received a Golden Globe award and a best actress Oscar nomination for her bravura -- and brave -- performance in "Transamerica," which makes its debut on DVD today (Weinstein Co., $29).
An uneven comedy-drama, the film features Huffman as a conservative transgender woman who discovers she has a 17-year-old son (Kevin Zegers).
Extras include interviews with writer-director Duncan Tucker and his two stars, a blooper reel and commentary from Tucker.
Also new this week:
"Cheaper by the Dozen 2" (Fox, $30): Sequel to the popular 2003 family comedy about a dysfunctional but loving family of 12 children. Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt play the parents of the brood. In this outing, Eugene Levy and Carmen Electra join the cast. Director Adam Shankman supplies the entertaining commentary.
"The Cecil B. DeMille Collection" (Universal, $6): Five films from the 1930s by the legendary director: 1934's "Cleopatra" is a dazzling over-the-top spectacle about the Queen of the Nile (Claudette Colbert); 1932's "The Sign of the Cross" is an epic about the Christians and the Romans set during the reign of Nero (Charles Laughton); in 1934's "Four Frightened People," Colbert and Herbert Marshall star in a rarely seen drama about four passengers who land on the coast of a treacherous jungle after escaping from their plague-infested ship; 1935's "The Crusades" is an uneven historical adventure starring Henry Wilcoxon as Richard I; and 1939's "Union Pacific," which was DeMille's final black-and-white film.
