‘The Wicker Tree’ Branches Onto Blu-ray This April

I have to admit, I knew nothing about this movie before today, but I’m pretty damn intrigued.  Based on Robin Hardy’s acclaimed 2006 novel “Cowboys for Christ,” THE WICKER TREE tells the story of Texas-based singer Beth Boothby (newcomer Brittania Nicol —I’m pretty excited to see her…do a Google Image search for her…LOL) and her friend Steve Thomson (Henry Garrett), two born-again Christians who come to Scotland to spread the gospel. When their initial efforts are met with disdain and disinterest, they find comfort in an invitation to sing in Tressock, the border fiefdom owned by Sir Lachlan Morrison (Graham McTavish).

However, Beth’s and Steve’s message of personal chastity quickly comes into direct conflict with Tressock’s sexual and religious practices, drawing upon ancient Celtic beliefs and rituals. Temptations begin to challenge Beth and Steve – with the stakes no less than their very lives and souls…

Christopher Lee, who played the mysterious Lord Summerisle in the original, returns again in a dramatic cameo. Rounding out the cast are Jacqueline Leonard as Lady Delia Morrison, Clive Russell as Beame, James Mapes as Reverend Moriarty and Honeysuckle Weeks as Lolly.

Bonus features on THE WICKER TREE Blu-ray and DVD include a behind-the-scenes featurette, deleted scenes and the theatrical trailer.  The flick hits the retail streets on April 24th.  Check out the trailer below and pre-order your copy now!  I said NOW!
