From Paolo Sorrentino, the internationally renowned writer and director of Italy's Oscar-winning foreign language film The Great Beauty, comes Youth, released on DVD and Blu-ray on 30th May 2016, courtesy of StudioCanal.
Starring Academy Award® Winner Michael Caine as Fred and Academy Award® Nominee Harvey Keitel as Mick, Youth explores the lifelong bond between two friends vacationing in a luxury Swiss Alps lodge as they ponder retirement. While Fred has no plans to resume his musical career despite the urging of his loving daughter Lena (Academy Award® Winner Rachel Weisz), Mick is intent on finishing a screenplay in what may be his last important film for his muse Brenda (Academy Award® Winner Jane Fonda).
Set against a sprawling landscape of unforgettable sights and intoxicating music, Youth asks if our most important and transformative experiences can come at any time - even late -- in life.
Youth garnered Jane Fonda a Golden Globe® nomination for her turn as Brenda and features David Lang's moving composition, nominated for a Golden Globe® and an Academy Award® for Best Original Song "Simple Song" #3. Lang wrote the signature song before Sorrentino completed the script which was a vital plot point for the character of Fred Ballinger.
A recipient of the Pulitzer prize in 2008 and Carnegie Hall's Debs Composer's Chair for 2013-2014, Lang is one of America's most performed composers.
