'Cutie and the Boxer' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Mon Dec 23, 2013 at 10:00 AM PST by

The acclaimed documentary from filmmaker Zachary Heinzerling is planned for Blu-ray in February. Pre-order here!

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay will be releasing 'Cutie and the Boxer' on Blu-ray on February 4.

In New York City in 1969, 19-year-old art student Noriko fell in love with 41-year-old avant-garde artist Ushio Shinohara and put her career on hold to marry and support this rising star of the Manhattan art world. But 40 years later and still struggling, Ushio remains consumed with reinforcing his legacy via his ‘boxing’ paintings while Noriko is now finding her own creative voice through a series of drawings entitled “Cutie And Bullie” that depict their chaotic relationship and transforming roles of assistant and artist. 'Cutie and the Boxer' is a powerful and poignant documentary about creativity, sacrifice, and a love that is its own unique work of art.

Specs haven't been revealed yet, but supplements include: Deleted Scenes, Shinohara: The Last Artist by Rod McHall, Q&A At The Sundance Film Festival, and Action Is Art: A Study of Ushio Shinohara's Boxing Painting.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
