Dear Journalist:

 

On February 8, Image Entertainment will release two titles from the esteemed Handmade Films library:  Five Corners and A Private Function.  Both will be available on DVD and Blu-ray™, with an SRP of $17.97 for the Blu-ray and $14.98 for the DVD.  Prebook is January 11.

 

Starring John Turturro (O Brother, Where Art Thou?), two-time Academy Award® winner Jodie Foster (Silence of the Lambs) and Academy Award® winner Tim Robbins (Mystic River, The Shawshank Redemption), Five Corners is a unique story about life, love, and the unexpected twists of fate for a group of friends living in the Bronx in the early 1960s.  In this chaotic time Five Corners has a battle of its own to face,  when Heinz (Turturro), newly released from prison, returns with his heart still set on Linda (Foster) – the woman he attacked – and his hatred still burning for Harry (Robbins) the man who tried to protect her.     This is an acclaimed indie thriller - a true original!

 

A Private Function is an outrageous comedy of manners taking place during a time of extreme food rationing in England following World War II.  One town’s upper class bends the rules by illegally fattening a prize pig for a feast to celebrate the upcoming royal wedding, but when a timid podiatrist (Michael Palin, A Fish Called Wanda) and his bossy wife (two-time Academy Award winner Maggie Smith, A Room with a View) learn of the plan, they seize the chance to climb the social ladder by kidnapping the pig…who has a few unpleasant surprises of its own in store. This hilarious, critically-acclaimed British cult comedy offers proof that some people will truly do anything to get ahead!

 

A limited number of screeners are available for review.
