Jono Oliver’s Endearing Film 'Home' Coming Out On DVD/VOD In March

If you been waiting for your chance to see Jono Oliver's remarkable feature film 'Home,' you'll have your chance soon, when it comes out on DVD and VOD in March.

Last year both Tambay and I didn’t have enough words to say about Jono Oliver’s pretty terrific feature film directorial debut Home.

Starring Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Good Wife, Graceland and many other film and TV roles), the film deals with a man suffering from a mental illness in a halfway house facility who is trying to rebuild his life, make peace with the wife he was once married to, and to be a father to the child they had together.

And the first thing he needs to do on his road to accomplishing all of that, is to find his own place, which, for him, symbolizes his freedom, independence and, hopefully, a new life. Needless to say, it’s not easy and he encounters more than his fair share of roadblocks and setbacks along the way.

But it’s a genuine, heart-tugging, feel good film, and even the voters of the NAACP Image Awards felt so themselves, since Oliver received an Image Award nomination for Outstanding Directing in a Motion Picture last week, along with fellow nominees Steve McQueen and Lee Daniels.

Next week I’ll have a pretty terrific interview with Oliver himself that I just recently conducted.

Last year, the film went though the film festival circuit, winning a few awards along the way, but the good news is that it’ll soon be coming to DVD and VOD though Entertainment One Home Video on March 25th.

Do you yourself a favor and check it out when it comes out. I guarantee you’ll love it just as much as everyone else who has seen it.

Here’s the trailer:
