"Lions For Lambs," a powerful and gripping political thriller from director Robert Redford, will arrive on DVD April 8th from MGM Home Entertainment.
The story centers on recent graduates, Arian (Derek Luke) and Ernest (Michael Pena), that make a bold decision to join the war in Afghanistan after being inspired by their idealistic professor, Dr. Malley (Redford), to do something important with their lives.
These two men soon find themselves behind enemy lines, fighting for their lives. They also become the tie that binds two very different stories taking place on opposite sides of America, stories that reveal a nation divided by war.
In California, Dr. Malley attempts to reach a privileged but disaffected student, while in Washington, D.C., Presidential hopeful Senator Jasper Irving (Tom Cruise) begins a dangerous cat and mouse game with liberal television journalist Janine Roth (Meryl Streep), where the result could play a crucial role in the fate of Arian and Ernest and the rest of America.
Special features will include commentary by the director, the theatrical teaser and trailer, plus three featurettes: “The Making Of Lions For Lambs,” “Script To Screen” and “United Artists Legacy.”
