Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Blindness on 10th February 2009 priced at $29.99 SRP. When a sudden, inexplicable epidemic of blindness sweeps a major city, health authorities round up the victims and quarantine them in Blindness, an apocalyptic thriller from director Fernando Meirelles. The wife (Julianne Moore) of an afflicted doctor (Mark Ruffalo) feigns blindness in order to accompany her husband into internment and finds that fear and brutality have infected the closed community. An all out war erupts between inmates as criminals and the physically powerful prey upon the weak over food and other necessities. As the sole sighted inmate, The Doctor’s Wife is the only one who can put a stop to the violence, but saving her loved ones may mean sinking to the level of the worst of her adversaries.
The film is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen with English DD5.1 Surround audio and English and Spanish subtitles. Extras include a making-of documentary called "A Vision of Blindness" (55mins) and deleted scenes.
