Off The Black in June
Axiom Films have announced the UK Region 0 DVD release of Off The Black on 25th June 2007 priced at £19.99. Directed by James Ponsoldt, “Off The Black” is described as a classically built and beautifully acted drama about a broken man’s redemptive relationship with the son he never had. Nick Nolte stars as a dying alcoholic coming to terms with the loss of his family in his last few days.
Starring Nick Nolte (Hotel Rwanda, Affliction, The Prince of Tides, Lorenzo’s Oil, The Thin Red Line, 48hrs) and Trevor Morgan (Mean Creek, The Sixth Sense), ‘Off The Black’ tells the story of Ray (Nick Nolte) a failed athlete who works as a high school baseball umpire, and Dave (Trevor Morgan) a troubled young player who comes into his life after he is caught vandalising his house. Timothy Hutton plays Tom, Dave’s depressed and uncommunicative father lost to his children after his wife leaves him to bring them up alone.
