Academy Award®-winner Jeremy Irons (Best  Actor, Reversal of Fortune, 1990) stars in the enthralling tale Night Train To Lisbon, arriving on DVD (plus Digital Ultraviolet), Digital HD, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View December 17th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.  Based on the worldwide best-selling novel by Pascal Mercier, Night Train To Lisbon takes us on two emotionally charged journeys revealing a man's quest for self-discovery and the dying days of the Portuguese dictatorship.  Directed by Billie August (The House of the Spirits, Les Miserables [1998]), this enthralling film features an exceptional cast of internationally renowned actors including Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds), Jack Huston (HBO's "Boardwalk Empire"), Bruno Ganz (Unknown) with Christopher Lee (The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy) and Charlotte Rampling (The Duchess) and will be available for the suggested retail price of $26.98.


Latin teacher Raimund Gregorius finds a book by Portuguese poet and doctor Amadeu de Prado and his life is changed. Determined to learn more about the author, Gregorius boards the night train to Lisbon and begins to piece together an epic story of oppression and revolution, loyalty and betrayal, love and jealousy, all played out against the backdrop of a brutal fascist dictatorship. In his exploration of Amadeu de Prado's life, Gregorius finds that life can change in an instant.
