  The Piano on Blu-ray, DVD and digital
  French and Saunders had a point
  To mark the 25th anniversary of its original theatrical release and ground-breaking 1993 Palme D'Or win at Cannes, STUDIOCANAL is delighted to announce that Jane Campion's multi Oscar® winning classic, THE PIANO, will be rereleased on 2 disc DVD and Blu-Ray and via digital download on July 16th. Complete with a brand new and exclusive extra, The Piano at 25, which includes interviews with Jane Campion and the film's producer, Jan Chapman (filmed at Karekare beach in New Zealand: the iconic location made famous by the film). The Blu-Ray release also comes complete with essay booklet, alternative artwork poster as well as a copy of the soundtrack.

Starring Holly Hunter (O Brother, Where Art Thou?, The Big Sick), Harvey Keitel (Mean Streets, Bad Lieutenant), Sam Neill (Dead Calm, Sirens, Hunt for The Wilderpeople) and Anna Paquin (X-Men, The Squid and The Whale, True Blood), THE PIANO won widespread critical and audience acclaim on its release. The film's writer, director and producer, Jane Campion was the first female director to win the Cannes Palme d'Or for the triumphant masterpiece that centres on a mute woman's rebellion in a newly colonised, Victorian-era New Zealand. Soundtracked by Michael Nyman's evocative score, the film also won Oscars for both Holly Hunter (Best Actress in a Leading Role) and Anna Paquin (Best Actress in a Supporting Role) in career-defining roles as well as a Best Screenplay statue for Campion's typically individualistic and female-centric script.

THE PIANO will screen on extended run at BFI Southbank from June 15th, while a special event looking at the film’s enduring legacy will take place on June 18th. The film is a key release in BFI Southbank's June programme which, to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act, is being dedicated to championing work by and about women.
