PR Miral on DVD and Blu-ray Jul 12

Anchor Bay Entertainment



The story of a Palestinian girl coming of age amidst the war zone of the Israeli-Arab conflict unflinchingly told through the perspective of Miral (Freida Pinto) herself. Following the death of her troubled mother, Miral's father (Alexander Siddig) is forced to entrust her to the orphanage of Hind Husseini (Hiam Abbass). Hind's commitment to peace through education has a profound impact on the maturing young woman, and Miral's epic journey to self-esteem and social consciousness proves both harrowing and hopeful.

Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company presents:

Miral
Starring Freida Pinto
On Blu-ray™ and DVD July 12th!



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). Based on the semi-autobiographical novel of the same name by Rula Jebreal, MIRAL heads to retail on July 12, 2011 for an SRP of $39.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $29.98 for the DVD.

"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."
