Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche bringing Chocolat to Blu-ray

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

Lionsgate has announced that the 2000 romantic film CHOCOLAT, starring Johnny Depp, Juliette Binoche, Alfred Molina, Carrie-Anne Moss and Dame Judi Dench, will be released on Blu-ray on July 19, 2011. The film was directed by Lasse Hallström and follows a woman and her daughter who move to a small town and open up a chocolate shop. The community is staunchly against this outsider shaking up things but eventually accept her and her goodies- it’s really like FOOTLOOSE but with cocoa beans instead of dancing.

CHOCOLAT was one of the films that made our writer Rebeca’s Best Food Films of the Decade list, which is an excellent list if you tend towards the culinary side of life. Can there really be anything better than watching a film about chocolate that stars Johnny Depp? It makes my mouth water just thinking of it. Special features for CHOCOLAT include:

Chocolat Blu-ray

  • Audio commentary with Director Lasse Hallstrom and Producers David Brown, Kit Golden and Leslie Holleran
  • The Making of Chocolat
  • The Costumes of Chocolat
  • Production Design featurette
  • Deleted Scenes
