'Breathless (2012)' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Fri May 25, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The darkly comedic thriller will knock the wind out of Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'Breathless (2012)' for Blu-ray on August 14.

In Texas the most deadly weapon is an unappreciated woman. This Texas gothic tale from director Jesse Baget ('Wrestlemaniac,' the upcoming 'Cellmates') and Academy Award® winning executive producer Nicolas Chartier ('The Hurt Locker') stars Gina Gershon, Kelli Giddish, Wayne Duvall, Val Kilmer and Golden Globe® nominee Ray Liotta.

Lorna (Gina Gershon, 'Showgirls,' 'P.S. I Love You') is a strong-willed Texas woman who’s had enough of her untrustworthy husband Dale’s (Val Kilmer, 'Top Gun,' 'Batman Forever') criminal acts and lack of husbandry. Fed up, she enlists the help of her old friend, Tiny (Kelli Giddish, NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), to help her figure out what to do with Dale after his latest double-cross involving the theft of $100,000 from a bank.

As the girls brainstorm for a “neat” solution, they medicate themselves with only the best of prescriptions - Tennessee whiskey - which leads them to even bigger problems. When Sheriff Cooley (Ray Liotta, 'Goodfellas,' 'Hannibal') inconveniently enters the conundrum, the story evolves into a tale of revenge and survival that resolves in true Texas fashion: bold and ruthless.

The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and the only supplement is an audio commentary with writer/director Jesse Baget and producer Christine Holder.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $26.98.
