The Big Chill - The Criterion Collection

£22.99

Released: 29th August 2022. After the shocking suicide of their friend, a group of thirtysomethings reunite for his funeral and end up spending a weekend together, reminiscing about their shared pasts as children of the sixties and confronting the uncertainty of their lives as adults of the eighties. Poignant and warmly humorous in equal measure, this 1983 baby boomer milestone made a star of writer-director LAWRENCE KASDAN (Body Heat) and is perhaps the decade’s defining ensemble film, featuring memorable performances by TOM BERENGER (Platoon), GLENN CLOSE (Fatal Attraction), JEFF GOLDBLUM (The Fly), WILLIAM HURT (Broadcast News), KEVIN KLINE (The Ice Storm), MARY KAY PLACE (Being John Malkovich), MEG TILLY (Agnes of God), and JOBETH WILLIAMS (Poltergeist). And with its playlist of hit songs from the sixties, The Big Chill all but invented the consummately curated soundtrack. DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES • New, restored 4K digital film transfer, supervised by cinematographer John Bailey and approved by director Lawrence Kasdan, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack • Alternate remastered 5.1 surround soundtrack, presented in DTS-HD Master Audio • Reunion with cast and crew, including Kasdan, actors Tom Berenger, Glenn Close, Kevin Kline, Mary Kay Place, Meg Tilly, and JoBeth Williams, from the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival • Documentary from 1998 on the making of the film • Deleted scenes • Trailer • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by writer, director, and actor Lena Dunham
