Miramax are pleased to announce, for the first time, the Blu-Ray releases of the The Talented Mr. Ripley, Emma, The Aviator, City of God, The Quiet American and The English Patient, on 19th September 2011.

The Talented Mr Ripley is an American psychological thriller written for the screen and directed by Anthony Minghella. It is an adaptation of the Patricia Highsmith 1955 novel of the same name, which was previously filmed as Plein Soleil (Purple Noon, 1960). In late 1950's New York, Tom Ripley (Matt Damon), a young underachiever, is sent to Europe to retrieve a rich and spoiled millionaire playboy, named Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law). But when the errand fails, Ripley takes extreme measures.

Based on the novel by Jane Austen, this period romantic comedy stars Gwyneth Paltrow as Emma Woodhouse, a young woman who imagines herself an authority on matters of the heart. With the best of intentions, Emma plays matchmaker for her friends, most notably her friend Harriet (Toni Collette), who Emma links up with the Reverend Elton (Alan Cumming) and her governess, (Greta Scacchi), who she introduces to her future husband, Mr. Weston (James Cosmo). However, Emma is not nearly as good at playing Cupid as she likes to imagine and she spends so much time trying to solve everyone else's romantic problems that it takes her quite some time to realize that she's fallen in love with Mr. Knightly (Jeremy Northam).

Directed by Martin Scorsese, The Aviator is the story of aviation pioneer Howard Hughes (Leonardo Dicaprio). The film centers on Hughes' life from late 1920s to 1947, during which time he became a successful film producer and an aviation magnate while simultaneously growing more unstable due to severe obsessive-compulsive disorder.

The Aviator was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, winning five, including one for actress Cate Blanchet.

City Of God was adapted by Fernando Meirelles from the 1997 novel of the same name written by Paulo Lins. It depicts the growth of organized crime in the Cidade de Deus suburb of Rio de Janeiro, between the end of the '60s and the beginning of the '80s, with the closure of the film depicting the war between the drug dealer Li'l Zé and criminal Knockout Ned.

Directed by Phillip Noyce, The Quiet American is an adaptation of Graham Greene's bestselling novel of the same name. The film illustrates Pyle's moral culpability in fostering intrigue within the South Vietnamese government.

Saigon, 1952, a beautiful, exotic and mysterious city caught in the grips of the Vietnamese war of liberation from the French colonial powers. New arrival Alden Pyle (Brendan Fraser), an idealistic American aid worker, befriends London Times correspondent Thomas Fowler (Michael Caine). When Fowler introduces Pyle to his beautiful young Vietnamese mistress Phuong the three become swept up in a tempestuous love triangle that leads to a series of startling revelations and finally - murder.

Michael Caine was nominated for the Oscar as Best Actor.

Directed by Anthony Minghella, The English Patient was based on the novel of the same name by Sri Lankan-Canadian writer Michael Ondaatje. It won nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Beginning in the 1930's, "The English Patient" tells the story of Count Almásy (Ralph Fiennes) who is a Hungarian map maker employed by the Royal Geographical Society to chart the vast expanses of the Sahara Desert along with several other prominent explorers. As World War II unfolds, Almásy enters into a world of love, betrayal and politics that is later revealed in a series of flashbacks while Almásy is on his death bed after being horribly burned in a plane crash.

The film also stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Juliette Binoche, William Dafoe and Colin Firth.
