St. Elmos Fire DVD

DVD Release

The DVD for the movie St. Elmos Fire was released on November 20, 2001 by Sony Pictures and is rated R.


The movie St. Elmo’s Fire shows us the coming of age of a group of friends that met during their college years. They all struggle to survive in the new world they are facing now, the real life. Growing up, facing struggles, love and friendship are the main subjects of the film.

Life is not that easy and can be very harsh on certain occasions as the young main characters learn during the movie. The movie name -“St. Elmo’s Fire” – comes both from the pub where the boys used to hang out during their college years as well as from the physical phenomena where no actual fire exists (a sort of ‘life is an illusion’ comparison).

On St. Elmo’s Fire Mare Winningham had to interpret a virgin girl, Wendy. Winningham was actually pregnant during the filming.

Demi Moore’s character in the movie St. Elmo’s Fire had a serious drug problem, allegedly much like Moore herself during those years. She even had some problems with director Joe Schumacher for being high during filming and even had to go to rehab and stay clean in order to ironically enough, play the character well.
