Perhaps the most compelling picture ever made about the shattering aftermath of the Vietnam War. Coming Home earned eight Academy Award nominations and won three for Best Actress (Jane Fonda), Actor (Jon Voight), and Original Screenplay. Coming Home is an uncompromising, extraordinarily moving film directed by the great Hal Ashby (Harold & Maude).
When Marine Captain Bob Hyde (Bruce Dern) leaves for Vietnam, his wife Sally (Fonda) volunteers at a local hospital. There she meets Luke Martin (Voight), a former sergeant whose war injury has left him a paraplegic. Embittered with rage and filled with frustration, Luke finds new hope and confidence through his growing intimacy with Sally. The relationship transforms Sally s feelings about life, love and the horrors of war. And when, wounded and disillusioned, Sally s husband returns home, all three must grapple with the full impact of a brutal, distant war that has changed their lives forever.
One of director Hal Ashby s biggest hits (second only to Shampoo), The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Coming Home for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK.
