    Beyond the innocence of youth and the wisdom of age lies the wonder of... COCOON

    Director Ron Howard followed up the huge success of Splash with this light-hearted science-fiction tale about a group of elderly friends who find their youth returning after encountering a benevolent Alien species living next door to their retirement home.

    Bucking the trend of extravagant special effects targeted at a teenage audience, Cocoon with its senior cast and more personal focus was a huge success, picking up two Academy Awards (Best Supporting Actor & Best Visual Effects), and remains one of the most memorable and heart-warming films of the Eighties. Eureka Entertainment are proud to present Cocoon in this Special Thirtieth Anniversary Edition Blu-ray.
