Get ready for a new musical John Turturro flick on DVD.
Romance and Cigarettes is coming to DVD on February 12. The disc will be priced at an SRP of $24.96. This ensemble musical stars James Gandolfini, Susan Sarandon, Kate Winslet, Steve Buscemi, Mandy Moore, Bobby Cannavale, Mary-Louise Parker, Aida Turturro, Eddie Izzard and Christopher Walken.
Actor and filmmaker John Turturro wrote and directed this emotionally resonant blend of music and drama. Nick Murder (James Gandolfini) is an ironworker who has been married for years to Kitty (Susan Sarandon), who works as a seamstress and is the mother of Nick's three daughters. While Nick loves his wife, his head is turned by Tula (Kate Winslet), a sexy salesgirl at a lingerie shop, and soon they're having a passionate affair. When Kitty finds out about Nick's infidelity, she becomes enraged and kicks him out of the house, forcing him to decide what he really wants out of life and what is most important to him. Along the way, many of the characters in the film periodically turn to their favorite songs to explain and amplify their emotions, lip-synching along with the original recordings. Romance & Cigarettes also stars Steve Buscemi, Mandy Moore, Christopher Walken, Eddie Izzard, and Elaine Stritch.
