Win 'The Last King of Scotland' on DVD ... TODAY!
Charming. Magnetic. Murderous. Under the mad dictatorship of Idi Amin – phenomenally portrayed by Oscar®-winner Forest Whitaker in 'The Last King of Scotland' – Africa experienced one of its most horrific reigns of terror.
Now Amin’s gripping tale of ambition and corruption will captivate audiences when 'The Last King of Scotland' debuts on DVD April 17 from Fox Home Entertainment.
Based on Giles Foden’s award-winning debut novel of the same name and featuring “one of the greatest performances of modern movie history,” (Wall Street Journal), 'The Last King of Scotland' stars Academy Award®-winner Forest Whitaker (Ghost Dog: The Way Of The Samurai, Panic Room), who has received multiple accolades – including Best Actor wins at the Golden Globe®, Screen Actors Guild®, National Board of Review® and International Press Academy® Awards – for his total embodiment of the charismatic, yet psychopathic Ugandan
Based on chilling, actual events, 'The Last King of Scotland' follows Amin’s rise to power and subsequent fall from grace chronicled from the perspective of his personal physician, a young Scotsman blinded by Amin’s charisma and who ultimately must confront both the reality of Amin and face the consequences of his own actions.
Boasting gritty and realistic direction from documentary filmmaker Kevin MacDonald (Touching The Void, Being Mick) and a versatile supporting cast that includes James McAvoy (The Chronicles Of Narnia: The
Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe), Gillian Anderson (“The X-Files”) and Kerry Washington (Fantastic Four), 'The Last King of Scotland' is “an intelligent thriller that keeps the audience on the edge of its seat” (Newsweek).
Loaded with powerful special features, 'The Last King of Scotland' DVD includes audio commentary by MacDonald, seven deleted scenes with optional director commentary, a “Capturing Idi Amin” documentary, a Forest Whitaker featurette and much more.
