'Margaret' Amazon Exclusive Blu-ray Announced

Posted Thu May 17, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Kenneth Lonergan’s coming-of-age story will hit Blu-ray in July as an Amazon exclusive.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox has slated 'Margaret' for Blu-ray on July 10 only at Amazon.

Hailed as “one of the decade's cinematic wonders” (Richard Brody, The New Yorker) and named “one of the best films of the year” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times), 'Margaret' is “ambitious, affecting, unwieldy and haunting” (Ann Hornaday, Washington Post) and features complex performances from a powerhouse cast including Anna Paquin, as the film’s eponymous heroine (TV’s “True Blood”), Mark Ruffalo ('The Kids are Alright'), Matt Damon ('We Bought a Zoo,' 'Invictus'), and Matthew Broderick ('Wonderful World').

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and the only supplement seems to be a bonus DVD containing a never-before-seen extended cut of the film.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
