Anthony Minghella’s award-winning Truly, Madly, Deeply is getting its first-ever Blu-ray release, as well as a DVD release, on March 5th, courtesy of BBC DVD.
Starring Juliet Stevenson and Alan Rickman, Minghella’s debut film quickly became a classic love story of British cinema, winning the BAFTA for best original screenplay.
It follows the reunion of Nina (Stevenson) with the ghost of her recently departed lover Jamie (Rickman) who has returned to visit her from the ‘other side’.
However, when a new relationship with psychologist Mark (Michael Maloney) starts to blossom, Nina must decide if she will betray the ghost that she is still ‘Truly, Madly and Deeply’ in love with.
The film has been restored from the original TV master and is available to pre-order from Amazon.
Juliet Stevenson commented: “I am absolutely thrilled that BBC Worldwide are re–releasing Truly Madly Deeply on DVD.
“No film has ever meant as much to me as this one, made with the late greats, Anthony Minghella and Alan Rickman. It is so rare for a film to have a long and lasting life – but this one renews its audience with each generation, and it makes me immensely proud and happy that it continues to speak freshly to young and old alike.”
Both the DVD and Blu-ray releases include an interview and introduction with writer and director Anthony Minghella as well as the original film trailer and an accompanying audio commentary.
