Hal Ashby's multi-award winning Coming Home on Blu-ray in July

13 June 2019

Eureka Entertainment to release Coming Home, Hal Ashby’s compelling and emotional tale of love and loss, starring Jane Fonda, Jon Voight and Bruce Dern, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series on Blu-ray in the UK in July 2019.

Perhaps the most compelling picture ever made about the shattering aftermath of the Vietnam War. Coming Home earned eight Academy Award nominations and won three for Best Actress (Jane Fonda), Actor (Jon Voight), and Original Screenplay. Coming Home is an uncompromising, extraordinarily moving film directed by the great Hal Ashby (Harold & Maude). 

When Marine Captain Bob Hyde (Bruce Dern) leaves for Vietnam, his wife Sally (Fonda) volunteers at a local hospital. There she meets Luke Martin (Voight), a former sergeant whose war injury has left him a paraplegic. Embittered with rage and filled with frustration, Luke finds new hope and confidence through his growing intimacy with Sally. The relationship transforms Sally’s feelings about life, love and the horrors of war. And when, wounded and disillusioned, Sally’s husband returns home, all three must grapple with the full impact of a brutal, distant war that has changed their lives forever.
