Default The Death and Life of John F. Donovan (2018) Released September 4, 2019

The Death and Life of John F. Donovan is out on Blu Ray in September in France.

The film is in English - will be interesting to see if the French subtitles are removable.

I absolutely adored this movie and wanted to go straight back in to see it again as soon as it ended. I was upset to see the release date of the Blu Ray has been pushed back.
I have yet to get any Blu Ray in France that doesn't have a choice of languages and subtitle options. I mean even foreign language series and films on television give you the option of original language and with or without subtitles!

The release date of the French BD was pushed back after the Quebecois theatrical release was announced a few weeks back, I suspect they didn't want it available on BD in France and easily available before it was in theaters in Canada in August.

I have the French BD preordered, but I may switch to a Canadian BD if they announce one, since so many French BDs have forced subs.

Again I say I've not had one single French HD release with forced subtitles in the past five years, and that includes older films. Every Blu Ray has alternative languages and subtitle options including off. DVDs are different of course. But like the tv broadcasts in France, subtitles are available on nearly everything Not English of course but French for deaf and hard of hearing - or to help those whose French can't get the accent on occasion - like me. Ever try understanding a fast talking Marseilles person? Even northerners have trouble with that!

It's been pretty much legally enforced for a few years now for French-speaking movies video releases to contain French SDH subs.

Not legally, but peer pressure has done the job, and with Blu rays it's so simple to do, as well as the language options.

A couple of sellers have this for sale on eBay. Both ads indicate that the French subtitles are 'fixed in', though I will be very interest what anyone here has to say should they obtain the disc.

Just taken delivery of my Blu Ray, French release. It has French version, and English language version with French subtitles. I couldn't take them off but was easily able to move them down and off screen, but my equipment is very clever! Panasonic Blu Ray recorder/player + Panasonic Smart tv.

AND I still adore the film.
Looking forward to Xavier Dolan's new movie, 'Matthias et Maxime' expected next week in France.
He's also the guy who's the victim of a gay bashing at the start of a Chapitre 2.
Gets everywhere and only 30! Hard to believe 'Tom on the Farm' was a decade ago!
