'Lore' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Mar 14, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Cate Shortland's acclaimed war drama will make its Blu-ray debut in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, Music Box Films will be bringing 'Lore' to Blu-ray on May 28.

Left to fend for themselves after their SS officer father and mother, staunch Nazi believers, are interred by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a harrowing journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a journey across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic Thomas, a mysterious young refugee, Lore soon finds her world shattered by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95.
