Next month, Lionsgate Home Entertainment will bring The Flowers of War to Blu-ray. From internationally acclaimed director Zhang Yimou (Hero), this drama stars Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) as an American expatriate living in Nanking during the years immediately prior to World War II.
From Lionsgate's official synopsis:
"In 1937, Nanking stands at the forefront of a war between China and Japan. As the invading Japanese Imperial Army overruns China's capital city, desperate civilians seek refuge behind the nominally protective walls of a western cathedral. Here, John Miller (Bale), an American trapped amidst the chaos of battle and the ensuing occupation takes shelter, joined by a group of innocent schoolgirls and thirteen courtesans, equally determined to escape the horrors taking place outside the church walls. Struggling to survive the violence and persecution wrought by the Japanese army, it is an act of heroism, which eventually leads the seemingly disparate group to fight back, risking their lives for the sake of everyone."
