"TRACK 29" starring Gary Oldman and Theresa Russell coming to DVD February 21st from Image Entertainment

This performance by Oldman is another strong example of acting to put beside his work in Sid and Nancy and Prick Up Your Ears.” -Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Russell and Oldman are consummate thesps able to reach the edge of frenzy (and beyond) while remaining fun and original.” -Variety

On February 21st, Image Entertainment will release the Handmade Films cult favorite Track 29, starring award-winning actor Gary Oldman (Sid and Nancy, The Dark Knight, the upcoming Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).  Executive produced by George Harrison and written by Dennis Potter (Gorky Park, Pennies from Heaven, The Singing Detective), Track 29 will be available on DVD for the first time in the U.S. for an MSRP of $14.98.  Pre-book is January 24th. 

Linda Henry (Theresa Russell, Wild Things, “Fringe”) is tormented by her disappointments and dreams.  Unhappy with her barren marriage to surgeon Henry Henry (Christopher Lloyd, “Taxi,” the Back to the Future trilogy), she craves something to awaken her lonely existence.  She becomes captivated with Martin (Oldman), a hitchhiker who suddenly drops in on Linda claiming to be the child she gave up for adoption after a teenage pregnancy.  They spend time together trying to forge a bond, but bizarre events and behaviors make Linda wonder about this oddity who has shown up at her doorstep. 

Clever and audacious, Track 29 is an eccentric ride through truth and illusion.   Is Martin real, or a figment of Linda’s imagination?  Is he the son she gave up for adoption or a reflection of the desires she gave up so long ago?
