Bandit Queen (R2) in May
Metrodome have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Bandit Queen on 5th May 2008 priced at £17.99. Based on intimate prison diaries, this film directed by Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth) tells the true story of India’s Bandit Queen.
Her name was Phoolan Devi, the Goddess of Flowers. She was India’s most infamous outlaw; a kidnapper, murderer and scourge of the upper castes. Sold into marriage aged 11, she was beaten and humiliated, living for years in virtual slavery. Until one day, she found the strength to rise up, to unite a makeshift army of maltreated and neglected citizens and in a five-year reign of terror cut a swath of bloody vengeance against those responsible for the brutality of her past.
Extras include a new, exclusive audio commentary by director Shekhar Kapur and the original trailer.
