A 14 minute Kierston Wareing Interview is included, done exclusively for this release. Wareing speaks about meeting Arnold, the filming locations, the nature of her character and much more. There's also a Michael Fassbender Interview, which is an audio recording (done at the Museum of the Moving Image in January 2010). Fassbender speaks with the museum's curator David Schwartz for a good 26 minutes. Fassbender talks about his involvement with the movie, working with Arnold, his character and a bit more. Both are worth tuning into for those interested in insights on making the film.
The Audition Footage is pretty enjoyable, if only that we get a look at 10 different actresses vying for the role of Mia and seeing how they played her. (Don't get your hopes up too much: the actresses merely dance.)
Rounding out the supplements on the disc are a Stills Gallery featuring photos by photographer Holly Horner, and the U.S. Theatrical Trailer.
Finally, inside the package is your usual Criterion booklet, and this one has an excellent essay by Ian Christie.
