    DVD File reports today that Buena Vista will be releasing Citizen Ruth on February 4th, 2003.
    Anamorphic widesceen AND a commentary by Alexander Payne.
    I am so excited. Fans of Payne's Election should definitely check out this earlier film.

    An intelligent satire that pokes fun at both sides of the abortion debate. Every single performance is fantastic (how often can you say that?) I was very happy to hear of it's DVD release.

    Excellent news! Somehow I knew Alexander Payne would do a commentary. He seems very proud of this film (as he should be). I'll be picking this one up for sure.

    I liked this film as well.
    Glad its coming out 16x9 w/ commentary.

    Filmed in my hometown(like Election & About Schmidt) Omaha, Nebraska.
    I actually lived a few blocks away from Mr. Payne

    I watched this just the other night on one of the HBO channels. I hadn't seen it in awhile, and found it even more funny than the first time I saw it. [​IMG]

    Has this DVD been delayed?

    DVV Empire now has it listed as coming out 4/1/03, DeepDiscountDVD has it coming 4/8/03, Amazon does not have a listing, and DVD Planet still has it listed for the old release date of 2/4/03.

    Anyone know what the scoop is?
