Molière (R1) in January
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Molière on 22nd January 2008 priced at $29.95 SRP. French actor Romain Duris stars as Molière, a down-and-out actor-cum-playwright up to his ears in debt. When the wealthy Jourdain (Fabrice Luchini) offers to cover that debt (so that Molière's theatrical talents might help Jourdain win the heart of a certain widowed marquise), hilarity ensues. Disguised as a priest, Molière becomes a guest in Jourdain’s palace on the pretext of teaching Jourdain the craft of the stage, which annoys his wife, Elmire. But, soon after, the confrontation between Elmire and Molière turns seductive. Too busy to notice, Jourdain enlists the aid of a well connected and scheming acquaintance, to help him pursue the young widow.
