'Some Days Are Better Than Others' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Mar 28, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The acclaimed character-driven drama coming to Blu-ray in April is now up for pre-order.

In an early announcement to retailers, Palisades Tartan is bringing 'Some Days Are Better Than Others' to Blu-ray on April 24.

Director Matt McCormick’s work crosses mediums and defies genre distinctions to fashion witty, abstract observations of contemporary culture and the urban landscape. McCormick has received awards including Best Short Film from the San Francisco International Film Fest, Best Experimental from the New York Underground Film Fest and Best Short from the Ann Arbor Film Fest. His film 'The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal' was named in the “Top 10 / Best of 2002” lists of both The Village Voice and Art Forum magazine. 'Some Days Are Better Than Others had its world premiere at SXSW 2010 and was featured at MoMA’s New Directors/New Films 2011.

The film stars two veterans of the modern indie music scene. Carrie Brownstein is a writer, actor, and musician, best known as a member of the independent alt-rock group Sleater Kinney. As comedic duo ThunderAnt, she has performed alongside Fred Armisen (“Saturday Night Live”) as a lead actor in IFC’s hit comedy show, “Portlandia” (now in its second season). Brownstein previously acted in the 2002 psychological adventure film Group and performed as herself on the Emmy®-nominated show “The L Word.” Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Believer, Pitchfork, as well as numerous book anthologies on music and culture. James Mercer (Eli) is an actor/musician best known for his role as the front man of the platinum-selling recording artists The Shins, who are currently releasing a new album. Mercer has also composed original scores for film, including 2004’s 'Towlines' and that same year’s 'American Nutria,' and his music was featured in the 2004 hit film 'Garden State,' as well as in hit TV shows “The Sopranos,” “Gilmore Girls” and “Saturday Night Live.”

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and there don't appear to be any supplements.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.98.
