“Closer,” set in London, is the treacherous tale of four strangers and their lives, loves and debaucherous urges.

The four main characters who meet at different times–Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Natalie Portman and Clive Owen–develop knotty and cunning relationships with one another.

Dan (Law), a writer, takes Alice (Portman), a stripper, to the hospital after she is hit by a car and they end up falling in love. Subsequently, he decides to write a book about her exciting lifestyle. While shooting for the cover, Dan meets photographer Anna (Roberts). Dan hits on her, but she quickly shoots him down. A year later, Anna and Dan, while still with their significant others, start an affair of their own. Over the next year the four are constantly hurting one another as the relationships fall apart.

This drama is directed by Mike Nichols (Primary Colors and The Bird Cage). The film was adapted from Patrick Marber’s award-winning play of the same title.

The Blu-ray Disc allows you to experience the movie in 1920x1080p full resolution and high definition picture.

Surprisingly, the only special feature on the Blu-Ray release is the music video of Damian Rice’s "The Blower’s Daughter," which is one more special feature than the DVD has.

“Closer” won two Golden Globes-Best Supporting Actress in a Drama (Natalie Portman) and Best Supporting Actor in a Drama (Clive Owen)-and was nominated for three. It was also nominated for two Academy Awards in 2004.

Rated R for sequences of graphic sexual dialogue, nudity/sexuality and language, “Closer” runs 104 minutes long.

But it on Blu-ray for around $27.99.
