Already tipped as a hot contender for the 2012 Oscars, Fox Searchlight has confirmed Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life will debut on Blu-ray Disc throughout Europe on 31st October.
Starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, this emotive drama centres on the memories of a married couple and their three sons growing up in 1950s Texas. Honoured with the Palme d’Or at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, the movie’s unconventional narrative and surreal but beautiful imagery wowed judges and critics alike, so we’re sure it’ll make a lasting impression when it arrives on BD with stunning HD picture and audio.
Although a full listing of supplements has yet to be confirmed, it will feature a 30 minute making-of documentary called Exploring the Tree of Life that will primarily focus on Malick’s seven year development of the project. We’ll be sure to keep you in the loop with any additional announcements!
