Wolfe announced this past week that writer/director Del Shores cult-status comedy, Sordid Lives, will be making its hi-def debut on Sept. 30 as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack.
When matriarch Peggy Ingram (Gloria LeRoy) dies — “tragically” on her way to the bathroom — it is reasoned that the clan must be gathered together for her funeral. Perhaps, just perhaps, a better plan might have been considered. But gather they must, which means truths will be revealed that these rural Texas folks might not be up to dealing with.
There are many questions (some without understandable answers) … will “Tammy Wynette” (aka: Earl 'Brother Boy' Ingram — Leslie Jordan) get out of the nut house in time for the burial, will Ty (Kirk Geiger) come out, will his mother (Bonnie Bedelia) understand or just melt down (or both) and will G.W. (Beau Bridges) get what’s coming to him? And good lord, what does Olivia Newton-John have to do with all of this?
If you like your comedies black and virtually all of the participants dysfunctional, then Sordid Lives is the perfect choice come Sept. 30!
Bonus goodies assembled by Wolfe include newly prepared interviews with filmmaker Del Shores and members of the cast that include Kirk Geiger, Bonnie Bedelia, Leslie Jordan, Sarah Hunley, Ann Walker, Newell Alexander, Rosemary Alexander, Beau Bridges and Beth Grant. There is also a previously released commentary track that is included here.
