Bolstered by an appealing cast and the comedic genius of Meryl Streep, Prime is an above-average "rom-com" that never stoops to compromise. The plot conceived by writer/director Ben Younger (Boiler Room) is a bit far-fetched, but once he\'s established that 37-year-old Gentile divorcee Rafi Gardet (Uma Thurman) is unknowingly dating the 23-year-old son (Bryan Greenberg) of her Jewish psychotherapist (played by Streep), the unlikely premise gets an intelligent workout, touching ...more
The odd relationship flick 'Prime' is, as everything does, coming to DVD. Universal has just announced the official release date for the film on DVD, along with details of what you can expect to find on it.
'Prime' stars Oscar nominee Uma Thurman, two-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep and pretty-boy Bryan Greenberg from television's "One Tree Hill" in the story of two perfectly mismatched lovers. When Rafi (Uma Thurman), a 37-year-old divorcee, meets David (Bryan Greenberg), a 23-year-old painter, it’s love at first sight. But that love gets complicated – fast – when Rafi discovers that David is also the son of her therapist (Meryl Streep)! Rafi’s about to discover that professional help is going to get very personal.
'Prime' arrives on shelves March 7th, 2006 as a single disc release with a suggested retail price of $29.98. The DVD will include many of the usual special features you'd expect from a solid release, including Deleted Scenes, Outtakes, and Feature Commentary from writer/director Ben Younger and producer Jennifer Todd. Also included is a behind the scenes feature called "Prime Time Players" in which Younger serves as a tour guide through the making of the film.
