Coming Home w/SLIP

Type: New Blu-Ray

Perhaps the most powerful picture ever made about the shattering aftermath of the Vietnam War, Coming Home won three 1978 Oscars for Best Actress (Jane Fonda), Best Actor (Jon Voight) and Best Original Screenplay. It is a heartrending examination of a critical period in our nation’s history and an uncompromising, unforgettable film, extraordinarily rendered by director Hal Ashby (The Last Detail). When Marine Captain Bob Hyde (Bruce Dern, The Laughing Policeman) leaves for Vietnam, his wife Sally (Fonda, Klute) volunteers at a local hospital. There she meets Luke Martin (Voight, Deliverance), 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 also 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. The superb supporting cast includes Penelope Milford (Heathers), Robert Carradine (The Big Red One) and Robert Ginty (The Exterminator).
