'About Cherry' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Nov 28, 2012 at 06:00 AM PST by

The drama screened at the Berlin International Film Festival will hit Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, MPI has slated 'About Cherry' for Blu-ray on January 15.

This bold debut film by author Stephen Elliott, a visual love letter to San Francisco, is the story of high school student Angelina (Ashley Hinshaw), whose choices lead her from a depressing home life and dead-end job in Los Angeles to the fetish-filled Bay Area adult film world. A stepfather with dark motives lurks in the background, as Angelina watches over her younger sister and questions her options. In memorable supporting roles are Festival favorite Lili Taylor as Angelina's manic and opportunistic mother, Jonny Weston as her sexy but sleazy boyfriend and Dev Patel as best friend and much-needed nonsexual support. The vibrant cast also includes James Franco as a coke-addicted attorney who spots Angelina in a strip club, and Heather Graham as a female porn director who launches "Cherry's" adult film career with mixed feelings. A gritty and defiantly voyeuristic look at the life of a youth who never loses her innocence, even as she gyrates for the camera, Cherry captures a rare point of view, urging us to consider the delicate tension between body and self by focusing on society's most sought after objects of desire.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and no supplements have been announced.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
