New Release: 3 Women Blu-ray

3 Women movie scene

Sissy Spacek (l.) and Shelley Duvall are two of 3 Women.

On Sept. 13, Criterion will issue a Blu-ray edition of one of the late filmmaker Robert Altman’s (The Player) most acclaimed films, 1977’s 3 Women, starring Sissy Spacek (Get Low) and Shelley Duvall (The Shining). It will carry a list price of $39.95.

Criterion put out a DVD edition of 3 Women in 2004; the upcoming release marks the title’s high-definition premiere.

Set in a dusty, under-populated California resort town, the drama concerns naive southern waif Pinky Rose (Spacek), a nurse, and her relationship with her fellow nurse, a would-be sophisticate named Millie (Duvall). When Millie takes Pinky in as her roommate, Pinky’s apparent worship of her friend evolves into something far stranger and more sinister than either could have anticipated.

The Criterion Blu-ray edition will feature a high-definition digital restoration with an uncompressed monaural soundtrack.

Here’s a list of the bonus features, all of which appeared on Criterion’s DVD edition:

  • audio commentary by director Robert Altman
  • rare production and publicity stills
  • original theatrical trailers and television spots
  • booklet featuring an essay by critic David Sterritt
