Hot off itís Oscar win for Best Picture, the musical Chicago will hit DVD this fall from Miramax Home Entertainment.
The Windy Cityís promise of adventure and opportunity dazzle Roxie Hart, an outwardly innocent performer who dreams of singing and dancing her way out of her ho-hum life. Roxieís one wish is to follow in the golden footsteps of sensational vaudeville performer Velma Kelly. Roxie gets her wish when some very wrong steps land both the star and the starlet in prison for separate murder charges. Under the crooked care of the prisonís Matron Morton, Roxie meets up with legendary lawyer Billy Flynn. He agrees to take Roxieís case for an immodest fee. Roxieís career explodes to the chagrin of her mentor. But the clever Miss Kelly has a few surprises left for her second actÖ
The disc will contain an anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, plus a bevy of features yet to be announced.
Chicago, made in Toronto, will arrive on August 18th.
