"Last Tango," "Moonstruck," "Rain Man" To Blu-ray 2/15

By admin Published: February 3, 2011

With the passing of Maria Schneider, this is even more noteworthy news. But anything getting "Last Tango in Paris" in front of the public is important. Brando, amazing. Gato Barbieri's music ...

The official word: Three timeless classics will make their Blu-ray debut on February 15th from MGM Home Entertainment: LAST TANGO IN PARIS: Uncut Version, MOONSTRUCK, and cult favorite RAIN MAN. Collectively nominated for sixteen Academy Awards®, these celebrated titles make the perfect additions to any film collection!

LAST TANGO IN PARIS: Uncut Version stars the legendary Marlon Brando (On the Waterfront) as Paul, a middle-aged American who goes to Paris after his estranged wife commits suicide. During a chance meeting with the alluring Jeanne (Maria Schneider, Jane Eyre), Paul enters into a sadomasochistic, carnal relationship with her, indirectly attacking the hypocrisy all around him through his raw, outrageous sexual behavior. Groundbreaking and controversial, the film was nominated for two Academy Awards®, including Best Actor (Brando) and Best Director (Bernardo Bertolucci, The Last Emperor). LAST TANGO IN PARIS: Uncut Version features the original explicit edition.

Fall under the delightful spell of MOONSTRUCK, with Cher (Burlesque) as an unlucky-in-love Italian widow who finds romance through the intervention of the Manhattan moon. With her wedding to Johnny (Danny Aiello, Once Upon A Time in America), a man she doesn’t love, just weeks away, she meets and falls hopelessly in love with his younger brother (Nicolas Cage, Leaving Las Vegas). Her dilemma—and her equally passionate and hilariously eccentric family—make for an unforgettable film. Nominated for six Academy Awards®, MOONSTRUCK was honored with accolades for Best Actress (Cher), Best Supporting Actress (Olympia Dukakis, Look Who’s Talking), and Best Original Screenplay.

Following the death of their father, Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise, Valkyrie) discovers he has an autistic brother named Raymond (Dustin Hoffman, Tootsie) and now the two are on the cross-country trip of their lives. Nicknamed RAIN MAN, Raymond pushes hot-headed Charlie to the limits of his patience and then pulls him completely out of his self-centered world. But what began as an unsentimental journey for the Babbitt brothers becomes much more than the distance between two places; it's a connection between two vastly different people and a poignant, profound and powerful film. Among its eight Academy Award® nominations, RAIN MAN won Best Picture, Best Actor (Hoffman), Best Director (Barry Levinson, Wag the Dog), and Best Original Screenplay.

LAST TANGO IN PARIS Blu-ray will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.99 U.S. / $21.99 Canada. MOONSTRUCK Blu-ray will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.99 U.S. / $21.99 Canada. RAIN MAN Blu-ray will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.99 U.S. / $21.99 Canada.
