Running with Scissors (R1) in February

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Running with Scissors for 6th February 2007 priced at $26.96 SRP. In his feature film debut, director Ryan Murphy (creator of TV’s “Nip/Tuck”) brings you this film based on the personal memoir by Augusten Burroughs. Growing up in the 1970’s young Augusten (Joseph Cross) was living a middle-class existence with an alcoholic father (Alec Baldwin) and a bipolar mother (Annette Bening), an unpublished poet with delusions of becoming famous. When his parents divorced, Augusten’s mother sends him to live with her wildly unorthodox psychiatrist and his eccentric extended family. The story portrays an outlaw childhood where rules were unheard of, the Christmas tree stayed up all year round, where Valium was consumed like candy, and if things got dull, an electroshock- therapy machine could provide entertainment.

  • 2.40:1 Anamorphic Widescreen
  • English, Portuguese and Spanish DD5.1 Surround
  • French Dolby Surround
