Here’s one that gets better every time I think about it: Hailed by critics as “brilliant” (Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times), “powerful” (Brian Truitt, USA Today), “stunning” (Helen O Hara, GQ), and “gorgeous” (Stephanie Zacharek, Time), visionary director Martin Scorsese’s entrancing epic SILENCE makes its home entertainment debut on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand March 28, 2017 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. The film arrives two weeks early on Digital HD March 14. A 28-year passion project that reinforces Scorsese’s place in the pantheon of great directors, SILENCE tells the story of two Christian missionaries (Adam Driver and Andrew Garfield) who travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson) at a time when Christianity was outlawed. When they are captured and imprisoned, both men are plunged into an odyssey that will test their faith, challenge their sanity and, perhaps, risk their very lives. Called “essential filmmaking from a modern master” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), SILENCE is “a film for the ages” (Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times).
