Eureka! Entertainment have announced the release of RAPTURE, a dark fairy tale set against the rugged beauty of the Brittany seacoast. Directed by John Guillermin (Towering Inferno, Death on the Nile, King Kong), Rapture is an astonishing rediscovery, presented for the first time on home video in the UK in a new high-definition restoration, released in a stunning blu-ray presentation as part of a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 28th July 2014.

An international co-production made on location along the Brittany coastline, Rapture is one of the most remarkable coming-of-age films ever made, and with its vivid atmosphere and emotional acuity is one of the most striking and neglected studio projects of the 1960s.

Three years after she shot to prominence in the classic Sundays and Cybele, Patricia Gozzi gives an extraordinary performance as the young girl whose isolated existence under her overbearing father, Melvyn Douglas (Ninotchka), is turned on its head with the sudden arrival of a seductive fugitive from the law, Dean Stockwell (Quantum Leap).

With a supporting cast including Gunnel Lindblom, Sylvia Kay (Wake in Fright, BBC TV’s Just Good Friends), and Peter Sallis (Last of the Summer Wine), stunningly expressive black & white Cinemascope visuals and an exquisite score by Georges Delerue, Rapture is an astonishing rediscovery, presented for the first time on home video in the UK in a new high-definition restoration.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
– New exclusive commentary with film historians Julie Kirgo and Nick Redmon
– Booklet featuring an essay by critic Mike Sutton; vintage stills; and more.
