Two More Blu-rays To Add To The Woody Allen Collection This January

On January 15, 2013, two more of Woody Allen’s film will make their way onto Blu-ray for the first time.  Sleeper and Hannah and Her Sisters are the films making their Blu-ray debut and both are wonderful films from writer/director Woody Allen.  Sleeper is a hilarious comedy based around the idea of Woody Allen’s character waking up 200 years in the future and discovering all that is new, not new, and just plain wrong with the world.  It also features Diane Keaton and is full of Woody’s witty sense of humor, along with plenty of his talents for physical comedy.  Hannah and Her Sisters is a comedy-drama revolving around a problematic family and all that occurs over the course of one year.  It also features Oscar winning performances by a wonderful Michael Caine and Diane Wiest.  Again, both films arrive in January, read on to learn more about these upcoming releases.


Sleeper

Drawing on the great tradition of silent comedy, Sleeper is Woody Allen’s first film to tame his verbal wit and showcase his emerging skill with visual and physical comedy. Starring Diane Keaton (directed by Allen for the first time), Sleeper is “a bizarre mixture of New York neuroses, splendidly lunatic sight gags, Alice-in-Wonderland illogic, and too-funny-to-be-painful satire” (Los Angeles Herald-Examiner)!
When cryogenically preserved Miles Monroe (Allen) is awakened 200 years after a hospital mishap, he discovers the future’s not so bright: all women are frigid, all men are impotent, and the world is ruled by an evil dictator…a disembodied nose! Pursued by the secret police and recruited by anti-government rebels with a plan to kidnap the dictator’s snout before it can be cloned, Miles falls for the beautiful – but untalented – poet Luna (Keaton). But when Miles is captured and reprogrammed by the government – to believe he’s Miss America! – it’s up to Luna to save Miles, lead the rebels, and cut off the nose…just to spite its face.

Hannah and Her Sisters

Brimming with laughter, tears and subtle beauty, Hannah and Her Sisters is a magnificent “summation of [Woody Allen’s] career to date” (The New York Times). Winner of three OSCARS,®* and featuring a brilliant all-star cast, Hannah and Her Sisters spins a tale of three unforgettable women and showcases Allen “at his most emotionally expansive, working on his broadest canvas with masterly ease” (Newsweek)!

 

The eldest daughter of show-biz parents, Hannah (Mia Farrow) is a devoted wife, loving mother and successful actress. A loyal supporter of her two aimless sisters Lee (Barbara Hershey) and Holly (Dianne Wiest), she’s also the emotional backbone of a family that seems to resent her stability almost as much as they depend on it. But when Hannah’s perfect world is quietly sabotaged by sibling rivalry, she finally begins to see that she’s as lost as everyone else, and in order to find herself, she’ll have to choose – between the independence her family can’t live with…and the family she can’t live without.
*Hannah and Her Sisters, 1986: Original Screenplay; Supporting Actress (Dianne Wiest); Supporting Actor (Michael Caine).
