| Warner Home Video is pleased to introduce the critically acclaimed film on DVD and VHS on February 24th. The special limited edition 2-Disk DVD/CD set contains the Matchstick Men soundtrack featuring a captivating score by Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer as well as a wonderful compilation of songs from the film, including "The Good Life"(Bobby Darin), Tijuana Taxi" (Herb Alpert), "Swedish Rhapsody" (Montovani), and others. You can also buy a single disc with the movie itself.
The story is about Roy (Nicolas Cage) and his protégé Frank (Sam Rockwell), a couple of small-time con artists (aka "Matchstick Men") who are on the verge of their most lucrative swindle. Roy's private life however is a mess. He is an obsessive-compulsive agoraphobe (and chain-smoker) with no personal relationships to speak of…that is until he learns he has a 14 year old daughter Angela (Alison Lohman).
Now Angela wants in on the partnership - but that could seriously jeopardize Roy's peace of mind and his whole way of life.
The Matchstick Men DVD has the following behind-the-scenes bonus features:
1. Tricks of the Trade - a sneak peek at the making of the film involving PreProduction, Production and Postproduction.
2. Theatrical trailer.
3. Audio commentary by director/producer Ridley Scott, writer Nicholas Griffin and writer/producer Ted Griffin.
