The acclaimed film based on the semi-autobiographical novel of the same name by Rula Jebreal is planned for Blu-ray in July.
In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay will release 'Miral' on Blu-ray on July 12.
A visceral, first-person account of a young girl growing up in East Jerusalem as she confronts the effects of occupation and war in every corner of her life, 'Miral' stars Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Freida Pinto ('Slumdog Millionaire') in the title role, Hiam Abbass ('The Visitor,' 'Amreeka'), and Willem Dafoe ('Spider-Man,' 'The English Patient').
“Miral is a must see,” says Hamptons.com’s Brittany Buckley. “Pinto plays the role of a lifetime that brings humanity to a grim reality. Schnabel’s film tells a chilling, yet truthful tale that holds the power to change history.” Screen International’s Mike Goodridge writes, “Julian Schnabel’s sincere and thought-provoking film Miral is rich in compassion and drama.” Writes USA Today’s Claudia Puig, “Director Julian Schnabel puts his unmistakable dreamlike stamp on the film.”
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtracks, and supplements include deleted scenes; “The Making of Miral” featurette; a Studio Tour with Julian Schnabel; a Filmmaker Q&A; and an Audio Commentary with director Julian Schnabel and producer Jon Kilik. Note: Special features are subject to change. .
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.98.
