    British distributors Curzon Artificial Eye have detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of director Hector Babenco's film Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985), starring William Hurt, Raul Juliá, Sonia Braga, Jose Lewgoy, and Nuno Leal Maia.

    A dreary prison cell is shared by two men who, in terms of lifestyle, could not be further apart. Molina (William Hurt) is a homosexual convicted for 'obscene behaviour', the other, Valentin (Raul Julia), is a revolutionary who has been continually tortured by the same totalitarian authorities. As the minutes slowly pass, Molina invents a story based on the glamorous cinema of yesteryear - a Nazi propaganda film involving an unlikely love affair. At first, this extravagant display of personality doesn't bode well for the cellmates' relationship but as time and the story progresses a new kind of friendship begins to blossom. Featuring an extraordinary Oscar winning performance from William Hurt, Kiss of the Spider Woman has proven to be a truly timeless cinematic masterpiece.
