Wipe Your Eyes — <I>The Crying Game</I> Is on the Way4 Nov, 2004 By: Brendan Howard
A movie that surprised audiences in a big way — if you don't know how, you won't read it here — is getting special edition DVD treatment in the new year.
The Crying Game: Special Edition streets Jan. 25 (prebook Dec. 11) at $19.98 from Lions Gate Home Entertainment.
The film streeted theatrically in 1992 and got vanilla DVD treatment in 1998.
Included on the new special edition disc is a newly remastered version of the film as well as an alternate ending — both with optional director's commentary. DVD extras include featurettes on the making of the film and the political troubles of 1990s Northern Ireland as seen through eyes of a Catholic cabbie from Belfast and a Protestant-paramilitary-turned-construction-worker.
