20th Century Fox unleashes the Marquis De Sade on DVD in Quills

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has just added the highly-touted drama Quills to their release line-up. Scheduled for release on May 8, this Academy-Award nominated and absolutely fascinating film about the Marquis DeSade, will certainly become an eagerly awaited addition to the DVD catalog.

Oscar winner Geoffry Rush gives a tour-de-force performance as history’s most infamous sexual adventurer, the Marquis de Sade. A nobleman with a literary flair. The Marquis lives in a madhouse where a beautiful laundry maid (Kate Winslet) smuggles his erotic stories to a printer, defying orders form the asylum’s resident priest (Joaquin Phoenix). The titillating passages whip all of France into sexual frenzy, until a fiercely conservative doctor (Michael Caine) tries to put an end to the fun, inadvertently stoking the excitement to a fever pitch.

The disc will feature an anamorphic widescreen transfer of the film and a 5.1 channel Dolby Digital audio track. Other details about the release have not yet been announced, but we will, of course, keep you posted as new information arrives!
