Juliet Naked DVD Announcement

“Juliet, Naked” Gets Home Video Release Wrapped Up

Juliet, Naked, this summer's winning romantic comedy, is making its way to home video. Based on the novel by Academy Award nominee Nick Hornby, it's one of Ethan Hawke's three acclaimed projects this year.

Hawke plays aging rock icon Tucker Crowe. Acclaimed for his lone powerful album, he's like Jeff Buckley if he'd retreated from public life instead of tragically passing away. Duncan (Chris O'Dowd) is his biggest fan, but can't handle it when Tucker starts dating his ex-girlfriend Annie (Rose Byrne).

The film made a modest $3.2 million this summer, but seems destined to find a bigger audience at home. The Blu-ray and DVD will include a making-of featurette, and hits store shelves and online retailers on November 13. But anyone wanting to get their hands on the film sooner can download it starting October 30.


About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
