Asif Kapadia's documentary Amy on Blu-ray, DVD and digital in November

17 September 2015

Universal Music have confirmed the November UK Home Entertainment release of the music documentary Amy. The package will include previously unseen material, special features, live performances and featurettes across DVD, Blu-ray and Digital formats.

The release follows the acclaimed film’s record breaking theatrical window, where it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, screened at the Glastonbury Music Festival and became the highest grossing British documentary of all time at the UK box office.

From BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia and the team behind Senna, Amy tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in.

A once-in-a-generation talent and a pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense, Amy wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most original and adored songs of the modern era. Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel.

Amy will be released on UK Blu-ray, DVD and gital platforms on 2nd November 2015 at the RRP of (we think) £24.99 for the Blu-ray and £19.99 for the DVD, but this has yet to be confirmed.
