AS I LAY DYING has been announced for DVD and Blu-Ray release in the UK on 23rd June 2014.
Directed by and starring Academy Award® nominee James Franco, AS I LAY DYING is a gripping Western adapted from the best-selling, classic novel by William Faulkner. Also starring Danny McBride (This is the End), Tim Blake Nelson (Oh Brother, Where Art Though?, Lincoln) and Jim Parack (True Blood) the film was part of the Official Selection at Cannes Film Festival and BFI London Film Festival 2014.
AS I LAY DYING chronicles the Bundren family as they traverse the Mississippi countryside to bring the body of their deceased mother Addie to her hometown for burial. Addie’s husband Anse (Tim Blake Nelson) and their children, Cash (Jim Parrack), Darl (James Franco), and three of their siblings, leave the farm with her coffin – each affected by Addie’s death in a profound and different way. Their journey is disrupted by every antagonistic force of nature or man: flooded rivers, injury and accident, a raging barn fire, and not least of all — each individual character’s personal turmoil, which threaten the fabric of the family more than any outside force.
