As with all things, I have to wait for the disc.

In truth: I've been hitting the Twilight Time catalog hard recently (mostly by renting from http://www.store-3d-blurayrental.com/) because Nick Redman died this year. I've got no reason to think Twilight Time will not continue but it does worry me. All things come to an end, including physical media (which is how they named the company) and I want to see these discs before they vanish.

This one is probably unreasonably hard. I'll give a free clue: both people are international superstars. Both are still working.

The one of the right looks like a young Liam Neeson.

Per the rules, once you give a clue, research is allowed. I agree that the man on the right looks like Liam Neeson, so I'm thinking that might be Julia Roberts on the left and the movie might be Michael Collins. Maybe?

I'll always give Neil Jordan a look. Review: Michael Collins (1996).

Based on the driver (Albert Finney) and car, I'm going to guess the movie is Two for the Road. That doesn't look like Audrey Hepburn, though.

The reason would be that you are correct.

The shadows in this film are almost as much a character as any of the actors.

As well as an unfortunate chicken (source of some of the film's notoriety).
