Phase 4 Films is pleased to announce the DVD and Blu-ray release of THE MYSTERIES OF PITTSBURGH in the United States and Canada on August 4, 2009. Starring Nick Nolte, Sienna Miller and Peters Sarsgaard, the film made its world premiere at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and was theatrically released by Peace Arch Entertainment in April 2009.
Based on Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon’s debut novel, THE MYSTERIES OF PITTSBURGH captures the adventures and emotional explorations of three young people trying to find their way in a shifting world: recent college graduate Art Bechstein (Foster) tries to break free from his father’s grasp and web of gangland connections. Cleveland Arning (Sarsgaard) is the small-time street hood with seductive delusions of grandeur. Jane Bellweather (Miller) is the troubled beauty who simultaneously brings them together and tears them apart. The cast is rounded out by Art’s boss and part-time girlfriend Phlox (Suvari), and is anchored by a riveting Nick Nolte who plays Artâ€™s iron-willed father Joe Bechstein.
Phase 4 Films will release THE MYSTERIES OF PITTSBURGH on DVD and Blu-ray in both the United States and Canada on August 4, 2009. The DVD will be available for $29.99 SRP in the U.S. and $32.99 in Canada, and the Blu-ray for $34.99 SRP in the U.S. and $32.99 SRP in Canada at all major retailers.
