‘Joe’ on Blu-ray June 17th!

Joe - www.whysoblu.comAcademy Award® Winner Nicolas Cage (Best Actor in a Leading Role, Leaving Las Vegas, 1995) gives the performance of a lifetime in the pulse-pounding action-filled drama,Joe, coming to Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital HD UltraViolet), DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet) and Digital HD June 17 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Joe is currently available on Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View. Joined by rising star Tye Sheridan (MudTree Of Life), the heart-wrenching and “brilliant not to be missed” (Twitchfilm.com) film from director David Gordon Green (Pineapple ExpressPrince Avalanche) was an official selection of the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals. Adapted from Larry Brown’s Joe: A Novel, the critically acclaimed film has been heralded as “one of Nicolas Cage’s best performances” (Collider.com). 

 

Cage delivers an intensely powerful performance as Joe, an ex-con with a hair-trigger temper who is trying to stay out of trouble, making an honest yet meager life for himself, and the unlikeliest of role models. But when he meets a troubled 15-year old homeless boy (Sheridan) in need of help from a violent and destitute father, Joe is faced with the heart-breaking choice of redemption or ruin.

Featuring deleted scenes, an audio commentary and two featurettes that go behind-the-scenes of the making of and origins of the film, the Joe Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
