Cradle will Rock (Special Edition) (Blu-ray)
Directed by Tim Robbins
Philip Baker Hall
Powerful and sweeping, the critically acclaimed Cradle Will Rock takes a kaleidoscopic look at the extraordinary events of 1930s America. From high society to life on the streets, writer and director Tim Robbins (Dead Man Walking) brings Depression-era New York City to vivid life. A time when da Vincis are given to millionaires who help fund the Mussolini war effort. And Nelson Rockefeller commissions Mexican artist Diego Rivera to paint the lobby of Rockefeller Center. A time when a young Orson Welles (Angus Macfadyen, Braveheart) and a troupe of passionate actors risk everything to perform the infamous musical "The Cradle Will Rock." As threats to their freedom and livelihood loom larger, they refuse to give in to censorship. Starring Bill Murray (Groundhog Day), John Cusack (Better Off Dead…), Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise), Vanessa Redgrave (Julia), John Turturro (Barton Fink), Emily Watson (Breaking the Waves), Rubén Blades (Color of Night), Philip Baker Hall (Hard Eight), Hank Azaria (Quiz Show), Joan Cusack (In & Out), Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride), Bob Balaban (Moonrise Kingdom), Jack Black (Nacho Libre) and Paul Giamatti (Sideways).
