YANKS (1979) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Vanessa Redgrave, Lisa Eichhorn, William Devane, Chick Vennera, Wendy Morgan, Rachel Roberts, Richard Gere
Directed By:  John Schlesinger
Composed By:  Richard Rodney Bennett

“So alluringly captures the quaint spirit of a small English community and the breathtaking beauty of its outlying countryside that after the end credits vanish you’ll want to hop on the next plane to the British Isles.”
– Jon Matsumoto, Los Angeles Times

“Thanks to a standout cast and the sure hand of director John Schlesinger, Yanks is deeply felt and emotionally mature. [Gere] is very good here, likable and sensitive. As for Lisa Eichhorn, she can do no wrong.”
– Glenn Erickson, DVDTalk.com

Yanks (1979) is perhaps director John Schlesinger’s most tender film, a lovely evocation of life on the northern English home front during World War II. Colin Welland and Walter Bernstein’s screenplay focuses on three couples in a small town “invaded” by American troops in the run-up to D-Day: an Arizona boy (Richard Gere) who pursues an already engaged shopkeeper’s daughter (Lisa Eichhorn); an aristocratic married lady (Vanessa Redgrave) who develops a warm friendship with a sympathetic troop leader (William Devane); and a girl-crazy city kid (Chick Vennera) who falls for a cheeky bus conductress (Wendy Morgan). Beautifully shot by Dick Bush and featuring a score from the singular Richard Rodney Bennett.
