Michael Caine and Jude Law go head-to-head in the the mystery-thriller "Sleuth," arriving on DVD March 11th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
"Sleuth" features a screenplay by Harold Pinter (adapted from the Tony Award winning play by Anthony Shaffer) and was directed by Kenneth Branagh.
This is the second time "Sleuth" has been adapted for the big screen. A 1972 version starred Michael Caine as the young Milo Tindal and Laurence Olivier as aging novelist Andrew Wyke. When Wyke discovers that Tindal is having an affair with his wife, he invites him to his country estate where they engage in a increasingly dangerous game of cat and mouse.
In Pinter's completely re-imagined adaptation, Caine assumes the role of Wyke, with Jude Law as the younger man. Locked in a high-tech English manor, bound in a deadly dual of wits, Wyke and Tindle once again come together as English gentlemen to discuss the matter at hand.
But as wit becomes wicked and clever becomes cutthroat, Wyke and Tindle’s game of oneoneupmanship spirals out of control, in an escalating chess match than can have only one outcome.
Bonus features will include commentaries with Jude Law, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh and two behind-the-scenes featurettes.
"Sleuth" will be presented in widescreen (2.35:1) with audio in English, along with subtitles in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish.
