Heavy Oscar contender The Hours is about ready to come to DVD this summer thanks to the folks at Paramount Home Entertainment.
Taking place simultaneously in 1929, 1951 and and 2001, three women are interconnected through the Virginia Woolf. Woolf herself writes the novel as Laura Brown reads the novel thirty years later and Clarissa Vaughn lives the story.
Separate fullscreen and anamorphic widescreen releases will both carry Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. The extras will be the same on both with an introduction by the filmmakers, an audio commentary with director Stephen Daldry and novelist Michael Cunningham. A second audio commentary features the great collection of Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore and Nicole Kidman. The featurettes “Three Women,” “The Mind And Times Of Virginia Woolf,” “The Music Of The Hours” and “The Lives Of Mrs. Dalloway” and a theatrical trailer are also included.
With a suggested retail price of $12.95, the disc will arrive on June 24th.
