ITV Studios Home Entertainment has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray director Jim Sheridan's My Left Foot (1989), starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Brenda Fricker, and Alison Whelan. The preliminary release date set by the British studio is May 27th.
The true story of the artist, writer and cerebral palsy sufferer Christy Brown, based on his own book. It recounts the many problems he faced growing up in his native Ireland, and charts the ways in which he developed the use of his left foot - the only limb over which he had any control - to achieve success as an artist. Oscars were won by Daniel Day-Lewis (playing the adult Brown) and Brenda Fricker (playing Brown's mother).
Note: Universal Studios will also release on Blu-ray director Sheridan's In the Name of the Father on June 3rd. See our listing
