New Release: 3 Backyards DVD

3 Backyards movie scene

Edie Falco keeps her cool on Long Island in 3 Backyards.

Screen Media released the independent drama movie 3 Backyards, starring Edie Falco (TV’s Nurse Jackie), Embeth Davidtz (TV’s Mad Men) and Elias Koteas (Let Me In), on DVD on June 28, 2011.

Written and directed by Eric Mendelsohn (who directed Ms. Falco once before in his feature film directorial debut, 1999’s Judy Berlin), the movie tells the story of three residents of a Long Island town over the course of a seemingly perfect autumn day. The trio consists of addled housewife Peggy (Falco), John (Koteas), who’s equally stressed out over issues concerning love and money, and a 9-year-old girl named Christina (Rachel Resheff) who creates a kind of fairy tale world in her head.

Produced in 2010, 3 Backyards received a limited release in theaters in March 2011 to generally solid reviews from critics following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2010 and a subsequent film festival run over the course of the years.

No bonus features are on the DVD, which carries a list price of $24.98.
