Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment have announced the US Blu-ray Disc release of Miracle at St. Anna on 10th February 2009 priced at $34.99 SRP. Spike Lee directs this story of faith, courage and sacrifice that is based on the novel by James McBride. The film is based on the true story of four African American soldiers stationed in German-occupied Italy during World War II. Separated from their unit and trapped behind Nazi lines, ranking officer Aubrey Stamps (Derek Luke), hot-headed Bishop Cummings (Michael Ealy), radioman Hector Negron (Laz Alonso) and gentle giant Sam Train (Omar Benson Miller) survive a shocking massacre, rescuing a young Italian boy in the process. The five make their way to the nearest village, where they join forces with the local opposition, risking their lives and gathering intelligence for a nation that considers them second-class citizens.
