HOMECOMING Coming to DVD and Digital Download, 10/22
After hearing a college pal passes away, five long friends who have drifted apart come together to face the realities of their past. On October 22, 2013, One Village Entertainment, a brand of RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE), brings you Homecoming on DVD and Digital Download. From director Eugene J. Ashe and starring Jerry Ford (Divine Rite), Nina Ashe (Neighbor, Skels), Sheldon Shaw (Fuse, Hush), and Tiffany-Denise (Unusual Suspects, Forgiveness), Homecoming will be available for an SRP $14.98 on DVD.
A group of college friends reunite for homecoming weekend nearly 20 years after graduation. They happily reminisce about their university memories, teasing each other and rekindling their close friendships. But cracks in the surface start to show as they remember one of their old roommates, Robert, whose recent death brings up long-hidden secrets, lingering emotions and painful regrets. With college in their rear view mirror, the group must learn to embrace the power of friendship, love and forgiveness.
Homecoming debuted as an off-Broadway play and enjoyed a sold-out run. The film was also a Saatchi & Saatchi Producers award finalist at the 2012 Martha's Vineyard African-American Film Fest.
