Long Day's Journey into Night bluray



In 1962, director Sidney Lumet took on one of the great American plays with his screen adaptation of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night.

As with the play, the film takes place over the course of a confrontational day in the life of the Irish-American Tyrone family, played by Katharine Hepburn, Ralph Richardson, Jason Robards Jr. and Dean Stockwell.

Long Day's Journey into Night makes its UK disc debut on March 16th when it will be released by Eureka Entertainment on dual format blu-ray/DVD.

Special features include a feature commentary by author Scott Harrison; video essay by Lee Gambin; trailer; and collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by Alexandra Heller-Nicholas and Philip Kemp.

Check out Eureka's new trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

Taking place over a single, fateful day in the summer of 1912, the Tyrone family (modelled after O'Neill's own) confront their bitter failings and long-held resentments. Patriarch James (Ralph Richardson) is a renowned stage actor who’s never forgotten his squalid Irish childhood, and has forsaken artistic ambition for commercial success. His wife Mary (Katharine Hepburn) has developed a morphine addiction, his eldest son Jamie (Jason Robards, Jr.) is a violent alcoholic and failed actor, and his youngest (and clearly favoured) son Edmund (Dean Stockwell) is a nervous young man in poor health. All of them have something painful to say, and their silence is even worse.
