I would love to buy the DVD. It appears to be available at screenings. I signed up months ago on the website- has anyone been successful ordering this DVD?

I'm still waiting for it to come from Netflix. Have you seen it? Is it wonderful?

The Netflix website appears to be down right now but I seem to remember its availability was listed as "unknown". Maybe once it becomes available to Netflix, we'll be able to buy it.

Remember, if you get it, you get to see ME. smile

I'm surprised there's any trouble getting it. I thought they were eager to sell the DVD's. I ordered and received a few copies a long time ago. But, I just looked at their website and now they're just saying the DVD will be available "soon."

I've e-mailed the producer of the film to find out what's the story. I usually hear back from her very promptly, and of course I'll let y'all know whatever I hear. And I'm thrilled that people are so interested in it!

Oh- thanks so much for checking into this! Feel free to pass along my email address to them (or, let me know if I may contact someone different and not go through that website).. I'm in the mood to watch this movie- just the trailer is so inviting!

I, too, emailed someone from the website and managed to get two copies (one of which I gave to AllForBach). Why they haven't updated the website to make it clear it's immediately available, I don't know. I just searched the Cliburn shop and found nothing.

Wow, I just looked at the trailer and it looks great. I'd love to see it too, especially since I now sort of know someone on it! (Mark_C, how does it feel to be a movie star?)

Mixed, because in the two clips where they show me playing, they omit the audio. ha ha

I attended a screening of it and also have the DVD. I really enjoyed it. I met the producer and have sent her an e-mail to let her know that folks here are interested in getting the DVD.

Mark_C: were you in it?

Oh, sorry. I'm afraid that I don't have time during the day to fully read things-I tend to scan and miss alot. I guess that we both e-mailed Lori!

Hi - I'm the producer of "They Came to Play". We will be wrapping up our theatrical roll-out late this spring, and then I will have permission to sell DVDs! We have been able to sell them at selected screenings. I apologize if you signed up a while ago, and then we began our theatrical screenings. We are booking new dates around the country, and are updating the website as we go along. Please write to me at: theycametoplay@gmail.com and let me know what area you live in!
Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Lori Miller

I take it, this is a play or movie? Sorry to be so out of it, but the discussion is mystifying since no one has mentioned what this work actually is, or is about. I can live without knowing, but I'm a little curious.

It's a movie -- a documentary about the amateur Van Cliburn piano competition of 2007.

I've been to a few screenings, and I don't cease to be amazed how much people love it. It's an incredible feeling to see "the public" loving something that you were part of, especially when it's about something like classical piano which you love so much and which you wouldn't necessarily think everyone would find of interest. But they love it!

I had not heard of this film before this thread. I just watched the trailer and it gave me chills. They actually screened this film earlier this afternoon around 120 miles from where I'm sitting right now.

Is there any nudity or coarse language-- because I'm very fragile.
Just kidding. Sounds like a great film that many will be proud of.I hope I get a chance to see it.

Thanks!
And as a matter of fact, I have the first "laugh line" in the film.

(You wouldn't guffaw, but you'd probably snicker.) smile
