The future is bright for fans of Curb Your Enthusiasm® who are clamoring for a dose of Larry David to tickle their funny bones. In Clear History, David brings the improvisational style he has perfected over eight seasons of the HBO Golden Globe-winning comedy smash to the first HBO Films® comedic title in recent years. Written as a story outline by David and the creative team behind Curb, the film features “an outstanding cast” (People Magazine) including Golden Globe winner and Emmy® nominee Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Academy Award® nominee Kate Hudson (Almost Famous), who put their improvisational skills to the test to provide non-stop laughs for the audience. Clear History streets on Blu-ray with Digital Copy ($24.99), DVD ($19.97) and Digital Download on November 5, 2013.
In Clear History, David stars as a marketing executive at a start-up electric car company who gives up his ten percent of the business after a petty argument with his boss (Hamm). The company subsequently makes billions of dollars, destroying his life and leaving him publicly humiliated. Ten years later, after changing his name and moving to a small island off the Massachusetts coast, all is well – until something from the past threatens his new life.
The film features an A-list ensemble cast that also includes Emmy® winner Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live), Phillip Baker Hall (Magnolia), Golden Globe nominee Michael Keaton (Batman), Danny McBride (HBO’s Eastbound and Down), Eva Mendes (Hitch), Academy Award® nominee Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone, HBO’s The Wire) and David’s Curb co-star J.B. Smoove. Directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad); written by Larry David, Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer; executive produced by Greg Mottola, Bradley Thomas, Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer. Monica Levinson produces; Laura Streicher is associate producer.
It’s great that HBO is getting this one out in time for the holiday. Sometimes the Home Box Office takes its time with DVD and Blu-Ray releases. We certainly enjoyed it and reviewed it here. This is a great gift for any LD fan or Curb lover. Pre-order it now on Amazon and check one (or 8?) Christmas gifts off the list.
