OUT ON VIDEO

A weekly update of video releases. Dates in paratheses indicate a previous review in the Monitor.

* LITTLE BUDDHA (PG-13, Miramax). Based on real events, this tale begins when the parents of a young American boy are approached by Tibetan monks who believe he might be the reincarnation of a beloved leader from their religious community. As the parents decide whether to accept the monks' offer of raising and educating their son, the movie makes frequent digressions to the historical tale of how Prince Siddhartha pursued enlightenment and became the Buddha long ago. Candid depictions of human suffering in scenes with Siddhartha (Keanu Reeves) could be troubling to some viewers. (June 3, 1994)
