The highly acclaimed and hugely gripping Notes On A Scandal stars Academy Award winners Cate Blanchett (Babel) and Dame Judi Dench (Casino Royale, Iris) is released on DVD by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment on 4th June 2007.

Based on the best seller by Zoe Heller, this psychological thriller is a tale of two women caught up in a drama of need and betrayal. When Barbara Covett, a domineering and lonely teacher, begins a passionate obsession with her new younger and more attractive colleague it sets in motion a scandal that will rock both their lives in a way they never imagined. Cate Blanchett plays Sheba Hart, a naive and misguided woman, who upon starting as the new art teacher at St George's School in leafy North London, attracts the attention of the calculating and manipulative colleague, Barbara Covett (Judi Dench).

Save for her cat, Portia, Barbara lives alone, without friends or confidantes and so enjoys this rapport she has formed with her new-found 'kindred spirit'. Their budding relationship, however, takes an ominous turn when Barbara threatens to expose Sheba's affair with one of her young students (Andrew Simpson) to both her husband (Bill Nighy) and the world.

With powerhouse performances by both its leads, this mesmerising story, noted in equal parts dark humour and realism in the diary of Barbara Covett, is a fascinating look into the darker side of loneliness and obsession. This riveting thriller received four Academy Award nominations; Best Actress for Judi Dench, Best Supporting Actress for Cate Blanchett, Best Adapted Screenplay for Patrick Marber and Best Score for Philip Glass. The film also received three BAFTA nominations (for Best British Film, Best Actress for Judi Dench and Best Adapted Screenplay for Patrick Marber). Dench, Blanchett and Marber also received Golden Globe nominations. Based on Zoe Heller's award-winning novel of the same name, Notes On A Scandal is directed by Richard Eyre (Iris, Stage Beauty) from an adaptation penned by Patrick Marber (Closer) and has a stellar support cast including Bill Nighy (Love Actually) who plays Cate's cuckolded husband.
