The Crying Game
A film by Neil Jordan
Stephen Rea, Miranda Richardson, Forest Whitaker, Jaye Davidson


Northern Ireland’s Troubles provide the backdrop for a study of sexual intrigue in this landmark 1992 British drama from director Neil Jordan (Michael Collins, Interview with the Vampire) and producer Stephen Woolley (Carol). The Crying Game will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in a Dual Format Edition by the BFI on 20 February 2017, preceded by a 25th Anniversary screening at BFI Southbank on Wednesday 15 February, followed by a Q&A with special guests from cast and crew.

When British soldier Jody (Forest Whitaker) is kidnapped by the IRA, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with his captor, Fergus (Stephen Rea). When the abduction goes awry, Fergus leaves for London where he becomes embroiled in a curious love triangle with Dil (Jaye Davidson), Jody’s beautiful girlfriend.

Full of suspense, mystery and intrigue, this Academy Award-winning thriller challenged mainstream stereotypes and remains a powerful and poignant exploration of gender and identity. The memorable soundtrack includes The Crying Game sung by Boy George and produced by Pet Shop Boys.

I didn't experience any problems on any part of the disc, though it's a check disc. Player specific?

Are you saying there's something wrong with Forest Whittaker's English accent? ;)

Outstanding transfer of a film that is so much more than a shock value twist its famous for.

This is one of my all-time favorites, and the new Blu-ray inspired me to finally pick up a region free Blu-ray player (of course, I picked up a couple dozen other Region B titles too). Gorgeous transfer. It was like watching it again for the first time. I haven't gotten to the supplements yet, but they look substantial. Very pleased overall. Love the cover art from the British poster too.
