Studiocanal is delighted to announce the release of a new restoration of the classic sixties romantic comedy The Family Way as part of its Vintage Classics Collection complete with new bonus content. For the 2020 restoration of The Family Way, Studiocanal went back to the original camera negative where possible and alternative sources where severe damage that could not be repaired was encountered. These elements were scanned at 4K resolution in 10bit and then restored in 4k.

Based on Bill Naughton’s warm-hearted play ‘All In Good Time’, and directed by the Boulting brothers- Roy and John - The Family Way is a tender and funny exploration of the emotional impact of the Sixties sexual revolution focusing on two sensitive youngsters whose failure to consummate their marriage threatens to derail their life together before it has even begun.

Featuring an original soundtrack by Paul McCartney (with George Martin), The Family Way stars Hayley Mills (Whistle Down the Wind) and Hywel Bennett (Loot) with John Mills, Marjorie Rhodes, Avril Angers, John Comer, Wilfred Pickles, Liz Fraser, Murray Head and Barry Foster.

The Family Way will be available for Digital Download (Amazon, iTunes, Google, Sky), on DVD, and for the first time on Blu-ray from 4th May 2020 and is available to order here.

Included in the special features is a new interview with Beatles biographer Chip Madinger on McCartney’s soundtrack, which in 1966 was officially the first solo release by a member of the group, the 1961 Armchair Theatre production of Bill Naughton’s original play titled ‘Honeymoon Postponed’, the original trailer and a stills gallery.

We've got two DVD copies to give away to lucky UK readers.


The winners are:

Terry Ross, Exeter
Linda Barbour, Swinton
