'Attenberg' DVD release details

Hailing from Greece, Attenberg is the latest film release announced from Strand Releasing. This coming-of-age tale will hit the stores on DVD on June 19th. I have been wholly impressed with their releases so far, offering up as they have, a fine selection of world cinema. Am hopeful that it will continue with Attenberg, which was incidentally Greece's official entry for the Academy Awards.

Greece’s Official Entry for the Academy Awards®, ATTENBERG is a wonderfully deadpan, surprisingly touching coming-of-age story. 23-year-old Marina lives in a small, factory town by the sea where she passes her time watching Sir David Attenborough’s nature programs, listening to the proto-punk songs of Suicide, goofing with her only friend Bella, and tending to her ailing father. When a visiting engineer (Academy Award®-nominated Dogtooth director Yorgos Lanthimos) comes to town, the two form a tentative relationship that pushes Marina into contact with the strange and complex world of adulthood. Critically acclaimed, ATTENBERG is a sincere and humorous look at life’s defining moments.
