MENTAL

"Refreshingly funny and fabulously insane" - Keith Price, Sirius XM Satellite Radio

AVAILABLE JUNE 4, 2013, ON BLU-RAY™ WITH DIGITAL COPY & ULTRAVIOLET™ FROM UNIVERSAL STUDIOS HOME ENTERTAINMENT

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Emmy-winning actress Toni Colette ("The United States of Tara," About a Boy, Little Miss Sunshine) and acclaimed writer and director P. J. Hogan (My Best Friend's Wedding, Confessions of a Shopaholic) reunite for the first time since their touching and hilarious collaboration on Muriel's Wedding for Mental, an edgy and endearing comedy coming to Blu-ray™ and DVD June 4, 2013, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. 

With their Sound of Music obsessed mother (Rebecca Gibney) in a psychiatric hospital and their neglectful father (Anthony LaPaglia) wrapped up in his own concerns, the five teenaged Moochmore girls are in need of a responsible caretaker. Enter Shaz (Toni Colette), a knife-wielding transient with a talent for creating chaos. Outrageously outspoken, foulmouthed and unconventional to the core, Shaz seems like exactly the wrong choice to get a family of vulnerable girls through one of the toughest patches of their lives. But her quirky self-reliance and unexpectedly effective advice help her charges realize that crazy is in the eye of the beholder and real happiness means accepting yourself exactly as you are.

Joining Colette in the cast are Liev Schreiber (Salt, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Anthony LaPaglia ("Without A Trace," Happy Feet), Rebecca Gibney ("Packed to the Rafters"), Caroline Goodall (Dorian Gray) Deborah Mailman (The Sapphires) and Sam Clark ("Neighbours").
