Veteran film icons Academy Award® nominee Ian McKellen (The Lord of the Rings franchise, The Hobbit franchise, X-Men franchise) and Academy Award® winner Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs, Thor franchise, Mission Impossible II) star together for the first time ever in the captivating BBC production of the STARZ Original movie, The Dresser, arriving on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment and Digital HD from Starz Digital July 12. Adapted from the classic 1980 West End and Broadway play by Ronald Harwood, the wickedly funny and deeply moving story of friendship and loyalty also stars Academy Award nominee Emily Watson (The Theory of Everything, War Horse) and Vanessa Kirby (Jupiter Ascending, Insomniacs).
One fateful night in a small English regional theatre during World War II, a troupe of touring actors stage a production of Shakespeare’s King Lear. Bombs are falling, sirens are wailing, the curtain is going up in one hour, but the actor/manager Sir (Hopkins) who is playing Lear is nowhere to be found. His dresser Norman (McKellen) must scramble to keep the production alive. Meanwhile, Sir reflects on his lifelong accomplishments and seeks to reconcile his turbulent friendships with those in his employ before the final curtain.

The Dresser originally aired on STARZ May 30, 2016 and will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $24.98.
