Out Of The Blue Blu-Ray

Out Of The Blue Blu-Ray
Responsible for a deadly accident whilst driving intoxicated, Don Barnes (Dennis Hopper) struggles to reconnect with his family after returning from a stretch in prison. With his wife (Sharon Farrell) a promiscuous drug addict and his disturbed daughter (Linda Manz) finding solace in punk rock and the music of Elvis Presley, the trauma of the past looms large as dark secrets slowly begin to emerge.

Featuring an astonishing performance by Manz, as an angry and disillusioned victim of her circumstances, this punk-fueled drama chronicles the collapse of sixties idealism into the nihilistic haze of the 1980s.

Despite only taking over directing duties 8 days into the shoot Out of the Blue arguably represents Hopper’s strongest film as director and is a cult-classic ripe for rediscovery, it’s presented here in a new 4K restoration and is on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.
