Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released Incendies, a 2011 Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack on Sept. 13 for a list price of $45.99.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Maelstrom) and adapted from Wajdi Mouawad’s hit play, Incendies follows twin siblings (Mélissa Désormeaux Poulin, Maxim Gaudette) who uncover a shocking family secret after they agree to fulfill their mother’s (Lubna Azabal) dying wish: to locate the father they thought was dead, as well as a brother they never knew existed.

The much-lauded Incendies enjoyed a limited release in theaters in the U.S., following a roll-out to film festivals and theatrical engagements across the world. It has grossed approximately $6 million at the domestic box office as of this writing.

The Blu-ray and DVD of the movie, which is presented in French and Arabic with English subtitles, contains the following bonus feaures:

  • commentary track by director Denis Villeneuve
  • “Remembering the Ashes: Incendies Through Their Eyes” featurette
