WIN! Proxima on Blu-ray

Picturehouse Entertainment announces the Home Entertainment release of PROXIMA
On DVD, Blu-ray & Digital 23 November

Picturehouse Entertainment is thrilled to announce the Home Entertainment release of PROXIMA, the epic and emotionally charged new drama from acclaimed director Alice Winocour starring Eva Green (Casino Royale, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children). The film will release on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital on the 23rd November, following its recent theatrical release in cinemas earlier this year.

The story follows Sarah (Green), a French astronaut training at the European Space Agency in Cologne. The only woman in the arduous training programme, she has been chosen to be part of the crew of a year-long space mission called ‘Proxima’. Putting enormous strain on her relationship with her seven-year-old daughter Stella (played by outstanding newcomer Zélie Boulant-Lemesle), the training begins to take its toll on them both as the life-changing launch looms ever closer.

Featuring stunning performances from the entire cast, which also includes Matt Dillon (Crash), Sandra Hüller (Toni Erdmann) and Aleksey Fateev (Loveless), Winocour’s new film is a stunningly cinematic experience which will take audiences on a gripping, emotional and life-affirming journey, and boasts a stirring score from world-renowned composer and musician Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Alice Winocour’s first feature film, Augustine, played in the Semaine de la Critique at Cannes and was nominated for two César awards in France. She went on to direct the thriller Disorder (2015) starring Matthias Schoenaerts and Diane Kruger, which she returned to Cannes with. 2015 also saw Mustang, the Oscar-nominated drama that she co-wrote with Deniz Gamze Ergüven, released to wide acclaim. PROXIMA is her third feature film.
