The Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner heads to Blu-ray next month. Pre-order your copy here.
In an early announcement to retailers, Sony is preparing 'Leviathan (2014)' for Blu-ray on May 19.
Set in the remote Russian northwest, Leviathan is the tragic tale of one man's struggle against a corrupt system of power, brought to breathtaking life by visionary director Andrey Zvyagintsev (The Return, The Banishment, Elena).
Kolya, a part-time mechanic, lives on a rocky shore with his wife and son in a house he built himself. When a local mayor attempts to seize the property through a compulsory purchase order he calls in a lawyer friend from Moscow to help fight his case. But the wheels of justice soon prove to be slow, heavy and quite possibly deadly…
An astounding work of epic scope and savage emotion that was awarded Best Screenplay at Cannes 2014, Leviathan is a visually arresting masterpiece that has drawn comparisons with Tarkovsky, shot through with the rich, novelistic complexity of Dostoyevsky.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.99.
