Barney’s Version is released on Blu-ray and DVD 23 May courtesy of Universal Pictures International.

Academy Award® nominated BARNEY’S VERSION is a sharp, intelligent and witty story documenting the extraordinary life of seemingly ordinary Barney Panofsky. With a stellar cast including a Golden Globe® winning performance from Paul Giamatti as Barney (Sideways, Cinderella Man), Dustin Hoffman (Meet The Fockers, I Heart Huckabees), Minnie Driver (The Phantom of The Opera, Good Will Hunting) and Rosamund Pike (Made in Dagenham, An Education), BARNEY’S VERSION is set across two continents and spans three decades. Take a flashback journey through the different stages of Barney’s unusual life when released on Blu-ray and DVD on 23 May 2011 from Universal Pictures International Entertainment.

Barney’s Version begins in Rome where Barney meets and marries first wife Clara (Rachelle Lefevre; New Moon, Twilight), a fiery and flame-haired free spirit until he discovers her infidelity with one of his close friends. Encouraged by his father and close confidante (Hoffman), his second shot at marriage sees Barney wed a wealthy Jewish heiress (Driver) who barely notices him switch off whenever she talks. Ironically it is at their wedding Barney meets the third ‘Mrs’ P, Miriam (Pike) who turns out to be his true love and mother to his two children.

At times a true romantic, performing acts of gallantry, generosity and goodwill, often when he least expects it; other times acting jealous and wallowing in self pity, Barney certainly lives a packed life, making him an unlikely and captivating hero.

A heartfelt, yet clever comedy portraying the depths one will go to for love; sometimes getting it right, other times getting it wildly wrong, BARNEY’S VERSION is a must see when released on Blu-ray and DVD this May.
