PR Beloved Sisters on Blu-ray & DVD May 12

Beloved Sisters

An epic yet intimate romantic drama that illuminates the storied lives of two bold young women, Weimar-era sisters Caroline and Charlotte von Lengefeld and the celebrated German poet Friedrich Schiller. Germany's official submission to the 2015 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film set in Europe in the late1700s but offers a surprisingly contemporary story of women who dared to flaunt convention as they approached love, marriage, sexuality and society on their own terms.

DVD Review BLACK NARCISSUS (BLU-RAY)

BLACK NARCISSUS

Conflicts of many kinds are present in Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's Black Narcissus, set against the beauty and danger of the Himalayas. These include the shock of Anglo-Catholic nuns set in the midst of the mountains among natives who speak no English, the struggle between flesh and the spirit, between medicine and superstition, between vows and longing for a different life, and between the monied classes and the impoverished. The new Blu-ray Disc from The Criterion Collection brings a splendid film-like appearance to the ravishing visuals.
