MEET MONICA VELOUR starring Kim Cattrall coming August 16th on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay Films

"Kim Cattrall gives a bold, courageous, jaw-dropping performance that deserves the attention it's getting” - Rex Reed, New York Observer


Available on Blu-ray™ and DVD August 16th  from Anchor Bay Films

BEVERLY HILLS, CA –   On August 16th, Anchor Bay Films releases Meet Monica Velour, on Blu-ray™ and DVD.  Starring Kim Cattrall (“Sex in the City”) as a former porn star who befriends a young fan, Meet Monica Velour is a showcase for the actress with a gutsy performance that wowed both audiences and critics. Meet Monica Velour arrives on Blu-ray™ and DVD with an SRP of $34.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $29.98 for the DVD, with bonus features including a commentary track by Cattrall (with writer/director Keith Bearden) and hilarious deleted scenes.

In this irreverent comedy, awkward teenager Tobe (Dustin Ingram) sets off on a road trip to meet Monica Velour (Cattrall), his favorite 80s porn star, at a rare live appearance hundreds of miles away. Instead of the glamorous sexpot portrayed on film, he finds a 49-year-old single mom living in a trailer in rural Indiana, performing at seedy strip clubs to make ends meet. But the starry-eyed Tobe, still captivated by his crush, befriends Monica, further complicating her difficult life. Cattrall gives a career-defining performance in this offbeat love story that appeals to the dreamer - and the nerd - in all of us.

Meet Monica Velour also features a feisty turn by Brian Dennehy (Ratatouille), and Keith David (Death at a Funeral). From the producers of The Kids are All Right and Garden State, and written and directed by Keith Bearden, Meet Monica Velour is a sweet, and sly coming-of-age story that’s sure to delight fans of quirky indie films.
