David Gordon Green's acclaimed 2000 film heads to Blu-ray this spring.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion says 'George Washington' will arrive on Blu-ray on March 11.
Over the course of one hot summer, a group of children in the decaying rural South must confront a tangle of difficult choices. An ambitiously constructed, elegantly photographed meditation on adolescence, the first full-length film by director David Gordon Green features remarkable performances from an award-winning ensemble cast. 'George Washington' is a startling and distinct work of contemporary American independent cinema.
The Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack will feature a 1080p transfer, a lossless 2.0 soundtrack, and supplements include: Commentary by director David Gordon Green, cinematographer Tim Orr, and actor Paul Schneider; Deleted scene, with commentary by Green, Orr, and Schneider; Two student shorts by Green: Pleasant Grove (1997), with commentary by Green, Orr, and Schneider; and Physical Pinball (1998); Charlie Rose interview with Green from 2001; Interviews with cast members; Clu Gulager's 1969 short film A Day with the Boys, an influence on George Washington; Trailer; and a booklet featuring an essay by critic Armond White and a director's statement.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
