BERNIE

A FILM BY RICHARD LINKLATER

ON BLU-RAY AND DVD FROM 19TH AUGUST 2013

Universal Pictures UK are delighted to announce the home entertainment release of black comedy Bernie on Blu-ray and DVD from 19th August 2013. Starring Jack Black (School of Rock, The Holiday), Matthew McConaughey (Magic Mike, Mud) and Shirley MacLaine (In her Shoes, Valentines’ Day), Bernie is the astonishing adaptation of the true story of funeral-director Bernie Tiede, directed by Richard Linklater (Me and Orson Welles, A Scanner Darkly). Bernie is the second collaboration between Linklater and Black following 2003’s School of Rock, earning Black a Golden Globe nomination.

Set in the tiny, rural town of Carthage, TX, assistant funeral director Bernie Tiede was one of the town’s most popular residents. He taught Sunday school, sang in the church choir and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Everyone loved and appreciated Bernie, so it came as no surprise when he befriended Marjorie Nugent, an affluent widow who was as well known for her sour attitude as her fortune. Bernie frequently travelled with Marjorie and even managed her banking affairs. She quickly became fully dependent on Bernie and his generosity, but Bernie struggled to meet her increasing demands. When the townspeople went months without seeing Marjorie, she was not missed and Bernie continued to handle her affairs. So they were very shocked when it was finally reported that Marjorie Nugent had been dead for some time, and their beloved Bernie Tiede charged with her murder.

Bernie is a quirky black comedy with incredible acting performances available on Blu-ray & DVD – both on 19th August 2013.
