Julia Stiles’ thriller series Riviera will arrive on Digital Download, Blu-ray and DVD 25th September 2017 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Starring Stiles, Lena Olin (Chocolat), Adrian Lester (TV’s Hustle) and Iwan Rheon (TV’s Game of Thrones), Riviera was created and co-written by Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Mona Lisa). The series is a Sky Original Production.
The 10-part thriller follows the moral descent of smart and resourceful art curator Georgina Clios (Stiles), who discovers her vast fortune is tainted by dishonesty, double-dealing and murder when her billionaire husband is killed in a mysterious explosion on board a Russian oligarch’s yacht. As she sets out to uncover what happened, stark truths about her husband emerge and she is led deep into the dark world of the Riviera’s super-rich. There, she must learn to adapt, survive and ultimately thrive if she is to save the Clios family and fortune from both its enemies and itself.
The story also examines the multi–million–dollar world of contemporary art, which offers a thematic strand–what is real, what is beauty, what is value? The arbitrary nature of the answers to these questions mirrors the moral ambiguity of all our characters, most of all Georgina.
Directors across the season include lead director Philipp Kadelbach (SS-GB), Hans Herbots (The Spiral), Damon Thomas (Penny Dreadful), Paul Walker (Boy Meets Girl) and cast member Adrian Lester.
Bonus features on the release include a “Julia Stiles on The Riviera” interview.
