“The Virgin Suicides,” “Dead Man,” “The Awful Truth” Headline Criterion Collection April Slate

The Criterion Collection’s April slate kicks off April 10 with the latest entry in the extra-less Eclipse line: Ingrid Bergman’s Swedish Years (DVD: 6 discs, $69.95), a compilation of six of the actress’s earliest performances, including her first speaking role in The Count of the Old Town (1935), Walpurgis Night (1935), Intermezzo (1936), Dollar (1938), A Woman’s Face (1938), and June Night (1940). Making its Blu-ray debut on April 17 is Leo McCarey’s genre-defining Oscar-winning 1937 comedy The Awful Truth (DVD: $29.95, Blu-ray: $39.95), starring the irresistible Irene Dunne and Cary Grant as would-be ex-spouses who can’t get enough of each other. Also coming April 17 is Sergei Parajanov’s 1969 masterpiece The Color of Pomegranates (DVD: $29.95, Blu-ray: $39.95), a revelatory film-poem built around folklore and metaphor that marked a departure from the realism that dominated the Soviet cinema of its era. Arriving April 24 is Jim Jarmusch’s hypnotic 1995 Western Dead Man (DVD: $29.95, Blu-ray: $39.95), featuring the poetry of William Blake and the music of Neil Young, starring Johnny Depp as an accountant caught in the middle of a fatal lovers’ quarrel. Also bowing April 24 is Sofia Coppola’s 1999 debut The Virgin Suicides (DVD: 2 discs, $29.95; Blu-ray: $39.95), an ominously dreamy coming-of-age reverie adapted from Jeffrey Eugenides’s celebrated novel, starring Kirsten Dunst and Josh Hartnett.
