New Release: Leaving DVD

Leaving movie scene

Kristin Scott Thomas and Sergi López get hot and bothered in the French marital drama Leaving.

IFC released the 2009 French marital drama Leaving, starring the always-game Kristin Scott Thomas (Nowhere Boy), on DVD on Feb. 22, 2011.

When stay-at-home mom Suzanne (Scott Thomas) wants to return to work, her husband (Yvan Attal, Munich) agrees to remodel their garage, which will serve as her office. Ivan (Sergi López, Ricky, Pan’s Labyrinth), a sexy Spanish builder, enters their lives and changes them in ways that no one could have expected.

Scott Thomas received a Best Actress César nomination (the French equivalent of the U.S.’s Academy Awards) for her performance in the film, which was released theatrically in New York back in October following a high-profile festival run across Europe and South America.

Leaving was written and directed by veteran French filmmaker Catherine Corsini and is presented in French with English subtitles.

No special features are on the DVD, which carries a suggested retail price of $24.98.
