Satyajit Ray's 1964 romance will also be hitting Blu-ray in August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion will be bringing 'Charulata' to Blu-ray on August 20.
Based on a novella by the great Rabindranath Tagore, 'Charulata' is a work of subtle textures, a delicate tale of a marriage in jeopardy and a woman taking the first steps toward establishing her own voice.
The Blu-ray will feature a 2K 1080p digitally restored transfer, uncompressed monaural soundtrack, and supplements include: New interview with actor Madhabi Mukherjee; Satyajit Ray and the Modern Woman, a new interview program featuring Ray historian Suranjan Ganguly; The Coward (1965), a feature film directed by Ray that also addresses modern female identity and stars Mukherjee and Soumitra Chatterjee; and a booklet featuring an essay by scholar Chandak Sengoopta and an interview with Ray from the 1980s by his biographer Andrew Robinson.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
