    Warner Bros are releasing "A LITTLE ROMANCE" starring Diane Lane (Unfaithful, Perfect Storm) and Sir Laurance Olivier (Sleuth, Marathon Man) on DVD.

    This award winning 1979 film has appeared on many peoples top romantic movies of all time. It was a big boxoffice hit in 1979 and won several awards including some Academy Awards. The film is also notable as the big screen debut of 12 year-old Diane Lane recently seen in "Unfaithful", "Hardball" and "The Perfect Storm".

    According to Warner they were hopeful of getting Ms Lane and director George Roy Hill (The Sting, Butch Cassidy...) involved in the DVD, but both were busy filming and declined. HOWEVER, A FEATURETTE INCLUDING INTERVIEWS WITH DIANE LANE IS ON THE DISC WHERE SHE REMENISCES ABOUT HER EXPERIENCES ON THE FILM!

    The DVD will be anamorphic widescreen, Dolby Digtal 2.0 stereo, with trailers and maybe filmographies for the director and stars PLUS THE FEATURETTE AND INTERVIEWS!

    I am so happy about this. Fairly bare bones, but that is just fine as that will help keep the price down. I see this as selling for no more than $14.99 at Best Buy.

    Anyone who has not seen this movie and enjoys romantic movies will really enjoy this. Buy it sight unseen.

    From Amazon's VHS (bleeeechhh!) review:

    I'd quibble with the "ages 7 and over" recommendation in that review. Yeah there's nothing too offensive in the movie (a trip to a porno house, musing in front of a male nude statue, a few curse words), but I don't think my 7 year old would enjoy the movie because 70% would go WAY over her head. Even though the kids are young, the dialogue is very much on an adult level.
