SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Academy Award nominee Eddie Murphy (Best Supporting Actor, Dreamgirls, 2006) and Britt Robertson (Tomorrowland) star in the heart-warming film Mr. Church, arriving on Digital HD and On Demand October 21 and on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) October 25 from Codeblack Films and Lionsgate.
Currently in theaters, the film was produced by Cinelou Films and Envision Media Arts. Directed by Academy Award nominee Bruce Beresford (Director, Tender Mercies, 1983) and written by Susan McMartin (TV’s “Mom”), Mr. Church challenges the notions of family and unconditional love. The “touching account of an unlikely friendship marked by love and respect” (The Hollywood Reporter), premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and also stars Xavier Samuel (Love & Friendship), Lucy Fry (TV’s “11.22.63”), and Natascha McElhone (TV’s “Californication”).
Mr. Church tells the story of a unique friendship that develops when a little girl and her dying mother retain the services of a talented cook – Henry Joseph Church. What begins as a six-month arrangement instead spans fifteen years, and creates a family bond that lasts forever.
The Mr. Church home entertainment release bonus material includes interviews with the cast, a “Food on Film” featurette, and a look at the true story the film is based on. Mr. Church will be available on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) for $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
