Jessica Lange delivers the performance of her career as Frances Farmer, the notorious 1930's movie star whose impassioned opinions and outspoken behavior created scandal throughout the industry. But when she was betrayed by the studio system and committed to an insane asylum by her domineering mother, Frances descended into a madness that revealed the most horrific abuses of mental illness and exposed the cruelest consequences of Hollywood fame. Kim Stanley and San Shephard co-star in this tragic true story that shocked the world. Frances is now presented in a stunning new transfer from original film materials and is packed with startling new bonus features exclusive to this edition.
Meryl Streep gives one of the greatest performances of her career as Susan Traherne, an idealistic young Englishwoman haunted by the memory of her passionate liaison with a young spy (Sam Neill) in occupied France. Over the next 20 years in post-war Britain, Susan's disillusionment and emotional instability creates chaos in the lives of those around her, including her long-suffering diplomat husband (Charles Dance), her trusted best friend (Tracey Ullman), and her angry young lover (Sting). Even though the glory of the "good war" is ended, Susan's destructive struggle with a life of plenty has only just begun. John Gielgud and Ian McKellen costar in this provocative drama written by award-winning director, playwright David Hare (Strapless) and masterfully directed by Fred Schepisi (Six Degrees of Separation, Roxanne).
Robert Duvall stars as Mac Sledge, an alcoholic drifter who comes into the life of a lonely widow (Tess Harper) and her young son in the barren flatlands of Texas. But when Mac is revealed to be a once-famous country singer, he must confront a painful past that includes his bitter superstar ex-wife (Betty Buckley) and troubled daughter (Ellen Barkin) while facing an uncertain future that may only be redeemed by the simple power of love. Tender Mercies is a movie experience of uncommon grace and dignity, directed by Bruce Beresford (Breaker Morant, Driving Miss Daisy) from an Oscar-winning screenplay by Horton Foote (To Kill a Mockingbird, The Trip to Bountiful) and featuring a once-in-a-lifetime performance by Robert Duvall. Nominated for five Oscars including Best Picture, this modern masterpiece is now presented in a stunning new widescreen transfer from original vault materials.
