Under Fire, Roger Spottiswoode’s Oscar-nominated thriller starring Nick Nolte, Gene Hackman and Joanna Cassidy as journalists who get caught up in the 1979 Nicaraguan revolution, gets its first ever UK Blu-ray release on 17 June 2019 courtesy of Eureka Entertainment.
Russell Price (Nolte) is a gutsy photo-journalist who gets caught between his love for reporter Claire Stryder (Cassidy) and his friendship with her husband, Alex Grazier (Hackman).
Caught up in the war between the Nicaraguan government and the Sandinista rebels, Price loses sight of his objectivity and becomes deeply involved in the skirmish.
With cinematography by the great John Alcott (2001: A Space Odyssey, Barry Lyndon) and one of Jerry Goldsmith’s greatest scores (later sampled in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained), Under Fire is director Roger Spottiswoode’s greatest filmmaking achievement, a complex political thriller with shades of Casablanca, and Eureka Classics is proud to present the film in its UK debut on Blu-ray.
