    CULVER CITY, CALIF. (January 26, 2009) – Rachel Getting Married, the contemporary family drama that became the talk of this year’s film festival circuit, arrives on Blu-ray High-Def and DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on March 10. Directed by Jonathan Demme (The Manchurian Candidate, The Silence of the Lambs) and penned by first-time writer Jenny Lumet, the film stars Academy Award® and Golden Globe® Nominee, Best Actress and National Board of Review winner for Best Actress Anne Hathaway (The Devil Wears Prada, Brokeback Mountain), Academy Award®-nominee Debra Winger (1983, Best Actress in Leading Role, Terms of Endearment), Bill Irwin (Across the Universe, Lady in the Water) and Rosemarie Dewitt (TV’s “Mad Men,” Cinderella Man).

    The film has recently been honored with six Film Independent’s Spirit Award nominations, including Best Feature, Jonathan Demme for Best Director, Jenny Lumet for Best First Screenplay, Anne Hathaway for Best Female Lead, and Rosemarie Dewitt and Debra Winger for Best Supporting Female Leads.

    The Rachel Getting Married bonus features include deleted scenes, filmmaker and cast audio commentaries, featurettes, Q & A panel with Jonathan Demme. This Sony Pictures Classics film will be available on DVD for $28.96 SRP, while the Blu-ray High-Def version will sell for $39.95 SRP.

    Rachel Getting Married is produced by Demme, Neda Armian (Jimmy Carter Man From Plains), Ilona Herzberg (Evan Almighty, The Manchurian Candidate) and Mark E. Platt (Legally Blonde).

    When Kym (Anne Hathaway - Academy Award and Golden Globe Nominee, Best Actress), returns to the Buchman family home for the wedding of her sister Rachel (Rosemarie DeWitt), she brings a long history of personal crises, family conflict and tragedy along with her. The wedding couple’s abundant party of friends and relatives has gathered for a joyful weekend of feasting, music and love, but Kym – with her biting one-liners and flair for bombshell drama – is a catalyst for long-simmering tensions in the family dynamic. Filled with the rich and eclectic characters that remain a hallmark of Jonathan Demme’s films, Rachel Getting Married paints a heartfelt, perceptive and sometimes hilarious family portrait.

    DVD/ Blu-ray High-Def Special Features Include:
    Deleted Scenes
    A Behind-the-Scenes Featurette
    The Wedding Band Featurette
    Cast and Crew Q & A Panel

    I caught this at the theater this weekend and really liked it. It's shot handheld, which may turn some off, but I thought it added to the feeling that you're peeking in on a family before and during a wedding. It felt as if the entire cast was just carrying out something very close to real life and the camera shots were not designed and planned, but just happened. But the performances are spectacular all around.
