UK DVD release for French ‘housewife runs porn firm’ series

Posted: January 31, 2013

Arrow Films is releasing the DVD boxset of Hard on February 18th, which the firm describes as one of France’s most controversial and hilarious new TV shows. Written and directed by award-winning French actress Cathy Verney, Hard is a comedy drama about a respectable middle-class housewife who is forced, by financial circumstances, to take over her husband’s porn empire after he dies in a freak accident – an empire she didn’t know he had. The series follows her attempts to revitalise the company whilst keeping her self-respect.

Hard is said to address the comic reality of the porn industry, and questions its social and professional taboos against the complexity of family life, relationships and love. It originally aired on France’s premiere StudioCanal+ and the series won writer-director Cathy Verney the Roma Fiction Festival’s prestigious Best Director award. GQ Online has described Hard as: “Breaking Bad-style family drama with a 50 Shades dress-code.”

The 15-rated title, which is in French with English subtitles, will be released on February 18th and it has a suggested retail price of £19.99. For more information visit www.arrowfilms.co.uk
