Water Lilies (R2) in July

Contender Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Water Lilies on 7th July 2008 priced at £15.99. This directorial debut from twenty-seven year-old Céline Sciamma stars newcomers Pauline Acquart, Louise Blachère, Adèle Haenel and Warren Jacquin.

Set in the competitive world of synchronised swimming, Water Lilies is a portrait of female adolescence. The film revolves around three 15-year-old girls who experience first love in very different ways. It’s summer in a new suburb outside Paris with nothing to do but look at the ceiling. Marie, Anne and Floriane are 15. Their paths cross in the corridors at the local swimming pool, where love and the violence of desire erupts for the first time, bringing them together and tearing them apart.

Presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen with French DD2.0 Stereo and DD5.1 Surround, English subtitles are optional. Extras include cast rehearsals (4:36mins), a deleted scene (5:21mins) and the original trailer.
