Just a warning that this will be REGION A LOCKED.
Just a heads up that (aside from the artwork) there is an EXACT mirror copy release of this through Film4 that is Region B (UK).
Currently tracking at £18.99 on Amazon.

Brilliant, brilliant film. Makes me want to sell everything and move there.

Indeed. Also didn't realise. Wondering why anyone would buy the Region A version at higher cost with longer delivery... I wouldn't.

Considering if I should delete the post as this is not a good deal
Only on HUKD can a Bluray disc that cant be played in the UK and costs more than one that you can purchase and play over here get heat rather than an ice cold rating.
I voted cold, good film though

That's a little harsh on HUKD because not everyone votes knowing everything every time.

I voted it cold myself BTW

Full marks for posting, its a great film. But even you must wonder how your Joseph Joseph boxes that saved about a third went ice cold and this went hot
Why was this even posted? It isn't a deal, it is the going rate for it.

Report it and ask for it to be deleted makes no sense it’s been posted.

Couldn't find "report" or delete, so just expired it.
