On Demand movie highlights

WISH ME AWAY ½

(Showtime on Comcast) Chely Wright became the first commercial country artist to openly identify as gay. This documentary makes it clear just how grueling and groundbreaking her decision was. Speaking specifically to Wright’s experience, it’s also a broad examination of why country music is so skittish about homosexuality. You’d think a genre so consumed with matters of the heart would embrace a performer who’s staying true to hers. (Unrated; runs through March 20)

Calendar Girls ½

(STARZ on Comcast) A featherweight trifle in which Helen Mirren and Julie Walters lead a group of well-to-do-ish English housewives to disrobe in the names of comedy and charity. This movie merrily cranks out expected scenarios; it overstays its welcome, but Mirren appears to be having a lot of fun. (PG-13; runs through Aug. 1)

FLASH GORDON

(Encore on Comcast) For kids only. A low grade sci-fi movie with a banal sense of humor. After five minutes you’ll tire of the puns. But, before you do, remember that it’s only a Flash-in-the-pan. (PG; runs through July 1)
