The Commitments: 25th Anniversary Special Edition - Preview

The Commitments

Preview by Jack Foley

25 years ago, on the big screen, wannabe band manager Jimmy Rabbitte put this advert in the local newspaper and before long a loveable ragtag group of Dubliners got together to form the soulful sounds of The Commitments.

Renowned director Alan Parker’s (Midnight Express, Bugsy Malone) funny, uplifting, gritty film, based on Roddy Doyle’s (The Snapper, The Van), debut novel, took the world by storm on its 1991 release, garnering critical acclaim and awards galore including a BAFTA for Best Film.

It has since spawned a slew of touring bands and a hugely successful stage musical which commences its UK tour later this year.

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this seminal film, RLJ Entertainment is thrilled to release The Commitments Special Edition, featuring a host of bonus features, including brand new interviews with Alan Parker and cast members and much, much more.

It will be released in both Blu-ray and DVD formats, with a digital copy to download, watch and own, and a collectible booklet, on September 19, 2016.
