Blu-ray Gets 'Happy, Happy'

Posted Tue Oct 25, 2011 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The award-winning Norwegian comedy is coming to high-definition in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Magnolia says 'Happy, Happy' is coming to Blu-ray on January 24.

The film directed by Anne Sewitsky won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for three Amanda Awards in Norway including Best Score, Best Actress (Agnes Kittelsen), and Henrik Rafaelsen won for Best Actor.

Family is the most important thing in the world to Kaja. She is an eternal optimist in spite of living with a man who would rather go hunting with the boys, and who refuses to have sex with her because she isn't particularly attractive anymore. Whatever. That's life. But when the perfect couple moves in next door, Kaja struggles to keep her emotions in check. Not only do these successful, beautiful, exciting people sing in a choir; they have also adopted a child - from Ethiopia. These new neighbors open a new world to Kaja, with consequences for everyone involved. And when Christmas comes around, it becomes evident that nothing will ever be like before - even if Kaja tries her very best.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
