On Demand movie highlights

CONNIE AND CARLA

(Starz on Comcast) A magnificent absurdity. Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette play middling lounge singers who witness their boss’s rub-out and drive to LA to camouflage themselves as drag queens. Some of it is overcaffeinated, manic, and disarmingly sloppy. Some of it is sentimental and message-y. But the movie surmounts its shabbiness, chiefly because Vardalos and Collette work so naturally together. With David Duchovny. (PG-13; runs through June 6)

BEYOND THE HILLS ½

(Comcast Movie Collections: All New Movies) From the great Cristian Mungiu (“4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days”), a story of an attempted exorcism in modern-day Romania — based on actual events — that uses scrupulous naturalism to paint a quietly outraged tragedy. Cosmina Stratan and Cristina Flutur are moving as a young nun and her troubled childhood friend. In Romanian, with subtitles. (Unrated; runs through June 10)

SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE

(Showtime on Comcast) The smart, funny, assured debut of Steven Soderbergh, this film rejiggered romantic comedy for the ’80s, and probably the ’90s, too, as soft-spoken voyeuristic dropout James Spader uses videotapes to get the lies out of the sex in a yuppie enclave of Baton Rouge. (R; runs through June 4)
