MORVERN CALLAR (DVD)
Starring:  Samantha Morton
Directed By:  Lynne Ramsay

Samantha Morton (Minority Report and AMC's The Walking Dead) is "gives the female performance of the year" (San Francisco Examiner) as the enigmatic 'Morvern Callar', in filmmaker Lynne Ramsay's (Ratcatcher, We Need to Talk About Kevin) highly acclaimed and remarkably assured second feature, based on Alan Warner's lauded debut novel.

When Morvern (Morton) wakes up one Christmas morning to discover her boyfriend dead by suicide, it's the start of an unpredictable and unconventional process of self-transformation. Morvern's form of grieving will be bewildering and shocking to most. She keeps her boyfriend's death a secret. She passes off his just-finished novel as her own to publishers. She goes on holiday to Spain. Equal parts road movie and character study, 'Morvern Callar' is as gripping and beautiful as it is dark and inscrutable. The ever-present and extraordinary soundtrack-stemming from a mixtape made for Morvern by her boyfriend, and including songs by Can, The Velvet Underground, Aphex Twin, Stereolab, Nancy & Lee and more-is masterfully and audaciously woven into the narrative, acting as a voice for a protagonist who often chooses to remain silent.

The film's contrasting two main environments-cold, grey Scotland and arid, sunny southern Spain-are gorgeously captured by cinematographer Alwin Küchler (Ratcatcher and Steve Jobs). 'Morvern Callar' has been restored for this DVD edition and is ready to bewitch again for it's 20th Anniversary.>p> RATED: R
