Posted Tue Apr 24, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Derek Jarman's acclaimed 1988 drama is bound for Blu-ray in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, Lorber Films is preparing 'The Last of England' for Blu-ray on July 24.

One of Jarman's most personal and innovative films, 'The Last of England' is a devastating vision of 80s Britain. Images of war and urban decay are intercut with Jarman's own childhood home movies, creating a shocking yet beautiful and poetic film with a much praised soundtrack. A powerful and haunting work from one of Britain's most creative filmmakers and starring Academy Award Winner Tilda Swinton ('We Need To Talk About Kevin,' 'Michael Clayton'). Kino Lorber has created a beautiful new high definition transfer of this classic film. First time ever on Blu-ray.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.95.
