Nominated for Best Actor (Javier Bardem, Eat Pray Love and Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner for No Country for Old Men) and best foreign-language film, Biutiful tells the story of a man (Bardem) living on the wrong side of the law who’s struggling to provide for his children on the dangerous streets of Barcelona. As fate encircles him, Bardem learns to accept the realities of life, whether bright, bad or biutiful.
Although it didn’t take home an Academy Award, the film was a multiple winner, including best actor at the Cannes Film Festival. And it was nominated for a best foreign-language film Golden Globe.
The R-rated drama is based on a short story by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel), who directed and co-wrote the film.

The DVD was priced at $27.98 and Blu-ray at $39.99.
