Warner Home Video are to release the Region 2 DVD of The Gift on 17 September. Starring Cate Blanchett as a psychic who is asked to assist in a missing-person enquiry, The Gift is refreshingly well written and directed with a much more thoughtful approach being taken than we're used to with some recently Hollywood fare.
Following the disappearance of a young woman (Go's Katie Holmes), Annie Wilson (Blanchett) is asked by the police to use her 'gift' to help discover what happened. Wilson's psychic powers draw a lot of unwelcome attention from some very unsavoury characters and plenty of criticism. As is usually the case we end up with a twist-filled story and plenty of jumps.
The DVD will feature a 16:9 anamorphic transfer, Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, interviews with Cate Blanchett, Keanu Reeves, Greg Kinnear, Hillary Swank, Giovanni Ribisi and the films director Sam Raimi, a featurette, theatrical trailer and TV and radio spots. The Gift will retail for £19.99.
