Ruby Dee's '1982' Final Performance On DVD

Street Date: 3/1/16

DVD SRP: $19.98

Witness the lengths one man will go to for his family when 1982 arrives on DVD, Digital and On Demand March 1 from Codeblack Films and Lionsgate. From the producer of the 2015 smash hit The Perfect Guy, 1982 features an all-star cast including Hill Harper, Sharon Leal, Bokeem Woodbine, La La Anthony, Quinton Aaron, introducing Troi Zee, with Wayne Brady, and the legendary Ruby Dee in her final performance. An Official Selection of the Toronto Film Festival, the 1982 home entertainment release includes audio commentary with actor Hill Harper and writer/director Tommy Oliver and will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $19.98.

"At it's core, 1982 is a film about a father willing to do whatever it takes to save his family, “ says director Tommy Oliver. “Hill likes to think of his character as an everyday superhero - just without the tights and cape. I think of it as the type of father/husband/man I'd hope to be in that situation. It was an honor to work with Hill, Sharon, Wayne, Troi and the late Ruby Dee and I'm thrilled to be able to extend that group to include the good folks at Codeblack and Lionsgate."

Tim Brown is a devoted family man who has worked hard to provide a good life for his wife Shenae and daughter Maya. But all is threatened when Shenae’s old boyfriend returns from prison and lures her back into a dangerous lifestyle. Though his wife has abandoned him, Tim refuses to give up hope, fighting against impossible odds to bring his family back together in this powerful drama.
