Product description

Product Description

This wondrous true adventure from the best-selling novel about a woman who raised a lioness and eventually set her free is beautifully photographed on the vast, golden savannas of central Africa.

 

When game warden George Adamson (Bill Travers) is forced to kill a menacing lion and lioness, he and his wife Joy (Virginia McKenna) adopt their three cubs. Two are sent off to zoos, but the third is kept – a female they name Elsa – to which they have become particularly attached. When Elsa becomes a full grown lioness, the Adamsons realise that she must be set free and taught to survive on her own. A year later the Adamsons return to the savanna and are surprised by a very special welcome from their old friend.

 

Highly acclaimed for its cinematography and music, Born Free is a story of courage and love, nature, and a relationship unlike any other ever filmed. Eureka Entertainment is proud to present the film on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, in a special Dual-Format edition.

 

DUAL FORMAT SPECIAL FEATURES:

  • Stunning High-Definition presentation
  • Uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray

  • Elsa the Lioness 60<sup>th</sup> Anniversary – a short featurette about Elsa, the lioness whose story is the basis for Born Free
  • Promotional featurette, generously provided by the Born Free Foundation
  • Original Theatrical Trailers

PRESS:

 

Born Free gives us a deep deep myth – and it’s a very encouraging myth – that we are at one with nature.  Death and destruction and pain and agony are not part of that myth.  They happen to be part of the natural world”

David Attenborough

 

“Beautifully shot, brilliantly scored by John Barry and sensitively staged by director James Hill, this charming adaptation of Joy Adamson's bestseller is one of the great animal films.” – David Parkinson, Radio Times

 

“Without minimizing the facts of animal life or overly sentimentalizing them, this film casts an enchantment that is just about irresistible” – New York Times

 

“a nicely restrained children's tearjerker that doesn't overdo the anthropomorphism, despite extreme provocation.” – Chicago Reader

Bought ready for my 2 year old grandson when he grows up a bit more and will appreciate this lovely, true life story of Elsa the lioness. As soon as it arrived, I watched it, on my own, in the lounge ... it brought back such lovely memeories of Joy Adamson - a real 'ooh aah' video ...

If you like things such as Free Willy or The Great Panda Story. You will love this. Although its a bit old fashioned, and they talk strangely you get drawn in to the story. It's funny as well as intruiging. I would say it would make a great family film. It brought my family together one sunday I know that. This is a must see.
by a very much impressed 12 year old.
