DELIVERANCE

£2.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Atlanta businessmen Ed (Jon Voight), Lewis (Burt Reynolds), Bobby (Ned Beatty), and Drew (Ronny Cox) take a weekend canoeing trip through the remote Appalachian wilderness, before the area is flooded for a new dam. Their inexperience and pride make them easy targets for hostile, inbred hillbillies, and the men all react differently to their situation as it becomes more perilous. Directed by John Boorman, the film serves as an allegory for America's experiences in Vietman.

Deliverance remains one of the screens most powerful man-versus-nature adventures and was a motion picture shocker of the 1970s. It's the story of four Atlanta "weekend warriors" who set off in canoes down a dangerous Georgia river and discover a wilderness of terror. The Deliverance 35th Deluxe Edition has been remastered and comes with a host of new extras, including retrospective featurettes and director commentary.
Directed by John Boorman (Excalibur, Point Blank) in 1972 and adapted by James Dickey from his novel, Deliverance was nominated for three Academy Awards including "Best Picture" and "Best Director". Burt Reynolds, Jon Voight, Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox star as the four friends whose canoeing weekend turns into a horrifying test of survival. Boormans taut direction builds the tension and fear to a raging climax, as the men travel way beyond their comfort zone and are forced to face more than they could have ever imagined. Vilmos Zsigmonds expert cinematography captures the wilderness of forest and river, while Eric Weissbergs classic musical theme "Dueling Banjos" provides a perfect counterpoint to the action.
