Me & Orson Welles (R2) in April

CinemaNX have announced the UK DVD release of Me & Orson Welles on 19th April 2010. The DVD will be available exclusively through Tesco (instore and online).

Richard Linklater directs this period drama set in the theatrical world of 1930s New York. Zac Efron stars as Richard Samuels, a young actor who finds himself thrown into the middle of the legendary Mercury Theatre Company the night before the opening of Orson Welles's historic staging of Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar'. Before a week is over, Richard is immersed in a unique and intense creative process, swept headlong into a romance with beautiful older woman Sonja Jones (Claire Danes), and learning the hard way how to handle the tempestuous nature of the brilliant egomaniac, Welles (Christian McKay).
