DVD Afternoon Delight : Kathryn Hahn is best known for supporting roles on TV shows like Crossing Jordan, Girls, and Parks and Recreation. But in Afternoon Delight, she takes center screen and gives a bravura performance as a woman looking for fulfillment in all aspects of life. This is a drama with comic elements and represents a new genre for women: the empowerment movie, in which a seemingly happy person discovers who she is intellectually and sexually. All of this is done tastefully. Director Jill Soloway gets the most out of her actors, including Jane Lynch as a therapist played in a way that only Lynch could play her. Soloway fleshes out the characters and lets us know what makes them tick. It’s refreshing to hear dialogue that’s natural and modern and doesn’t try to pontificate. And the rewards are many. On DVD and Blu-ray.
