Studio: Twilight Time

Sean Penn in U Turn

Not a pretty, but always a fascinating picture, with standout performances from the phenomenal likes of Sean Penn (Gangster Squad), Billy Bob Thornton (Bad Santa), Nick Nolte (TV’s Rich Man Poor Man), Powers Boothe (TV’s Hatfields and McCoys), Jennifer Lopez (The Back-Up Plan), Joaquin Phoenix (The Master), and Claire Danes (Stardust).

Shot in a dazzling variety of styles by Robert Richardson (Django Unchained) and highlighted by a score from maestro of maestros Ennio Morricone, U-Turn makes its Blu-ray debut with this Twilight Time release.
