Lionsgate Home Entertainment
have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Mondays in the Sun as part of The Meridian Collection on 21st October 2008 priced at $29.98 SRP. Javier Bardem stars in Fernando León de Aranoa’s insightful and heartbreaking drama. The film follows five unemployed shipyard workers who spend their days drinking in a local bar and riding the ferry back and forth, to no destination. Led by the cocky Santa (Javier Bardem), a lonely former ladies' man, the men may be down on their luck but still manage to encourage each other to search for work, love and the strength to hope for better days.
Presented in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85.1, this Meridian Collection DVD transfer was enhanced using the MTI Digital Restoration System to reduce the appearance of dirt, scratches and other film impurities. It includes deleted scenes, audio commentary, storyboard to scene comparisons and a making-of featurette.
