  • “Unexpected Betrayal” – The filmmakers and cast discuss William O’Neil’s complexities and his eventual betrayal of Hampton.

EDITORIAL NOTE: Sadly, no there will not be a 4K physical release here in the United States of the film, it would appear. That’s a shame, as it aired on HBOMax earlier this year in 4K UHD with HDR10 and Dolby Vision as well as with Dolby Atmos sound. Maybe, if this film takes home some “Oscars” in the 6 categories it is nominated for, namely Best Picture, later this year, it might receive a 4K UHD Blu-ray release with all of that mentioned. One would speculate?
