Wishful Drinking Coming To DVD In Sept.

Posted By Mike on June 14, 2011

If you missed Carrie Fisher's one-woman performance of Wishful Drinking when it aired back in December of 2010, you're in luck as HBO Home Entertainment will be brining the performance to DVD this September per the following press release. We've included the original trailer for the special and a few screencaps above as a bit of a refresher. Click on the images for full views.



WISHFUL DRINKING
A Show Where One Woman Reconciles Herself to Being Carrie Fisher

DVD in Stores Exclusively from HBO Home Entertainment® on September 13, 2011


Based on Fisher’s Autobiographical Best-selling Book and Acclaimed Stage Show,
Includes Exclusive Interview with Fisher’s Mother, Actress Debbie Reynolds

New York, N.Y., June 3, 2011 – A child of Hollywood royalty, actress and Star Wars icon, acclaimed screenwriter and best-selling author, Carrie Fisher has seen and done it all. Fisher shares the intoxicating tales of her life on the edge in the new DVD release Wishful Drinking. In the HBO® adaptation of her acclaimed autobiographical stage production, Fisher gives a raucous performance which slowly strips away her celebrity veneer with biting honesty. Wishful Drinking on DVD includes “My Alleged Mother,” an exclusive and candid interview with Fisher’s mom, actress Debbie Reynolds, along with hilarious deleted scenes and will be available on September 13, 2011, for the suggested retail price of $19.98.

Daughter of Reynolds and the late crooner Eddie Fisher (they were known as “America’s Sweethearts” in the late ‘50s), Carrie Fisher is no stranger to Hollywood life. Yet despite growing up under the roof of two Tinseltown icons, her life has hardly been enviable. Faced with more than her share of challenges – her parents’ scandalous and very public divorce, tragic personal relationships, drug and alcohol addiction, stints in rehab, diagnosis of bipolar disorder and electroshock therapy – Fisher has survived, and even prospered, through her resiliency, intelligence, and above all, her heroic sense of humor. In addition to Fisher’s uproarious and sometimes sobering on-stage reflections, Wishful Drinking includes archival footage from her childhood and celebrated past.

Fisher made her film debut in 1975’s Shampoo with Warren Beatty, and became an instant celebrity two years later when she was cast as Princess Leia in Star Wars. In addition to the first three Star Wars movies, Fisher’s film roles include When Harry Met Sally, The Blues Brothers, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and The ‘burbs. Among her TV appearances are 30 Rock, Family Guy and the HBO shows Sex and the City® and Entourage®. Her books – Postcards from the Edge, Surrender the Pink, Delusions of Grandma, The Best Awful and Wishful Drinking – were all New York Times best-sellers. The film version of Postcards from the Edge with Meryl Streep went on to earn an Oscar® nomination. Her latest book, Shockaholic, will be released in late 2011.
