Closing the Ring (R2) in May

Universal Pictures have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Closing the Ring on 19th May 2008 priced at £19.99. This tale of love, loss and redemption from director Richard Attenborough stars Shirley MacLaine, Christopher Plummer, Mischa Barton, Pete Postlethwaite and Brenda Fricker.

In 1991, a small American town mourns the passing of Chuck Harris; father, husband and Second World War veteran. His widow, Ethel (Shirley MacLaine), refuses to mourn, drowning herself in alcohol and cigarettes as she neglects her hysterical daughter, Marie (Neve Campbell). A phone call from a young Irishman, claiming to have found a ring belonging to Ethel, reawakens Ethel’s lifetime of heartache and reveals the deeply hidden secrets of her love life.

As the narrative travels back in time we see the young, beautiful and confident Ethel (Mischa Barton), deeply in love with farmer Teddy (Stephen Amell), who goes to war with his best friends Jack (Gregory Smith) and Chuck (David Alpay), but not all of them make it back alive...

Extras include 30 minutes of interviews with Lord Attenborough, Shirley MacLaine, Christopher Plummer & Mischa Barton.
