Out Of The Black
(Sally Kirkland, Tyler Christopher / DVD / R / 2002 / MTI Home Video)

Overview:Thirteen years after watching his father die in a Pennsylvania coal mining explosion, Cole Malby (Christopher) and his brother Patrick (Jason Widener) begin a quest to unravel the mysteries behind what really happened on that fateful day.

DVD Verdict:They say everyone has their secrets, every small town its skeletons. But what recent big-budget Hollywood bonanza has taken this idea to its full potential? None to my knowledge, but heck if I didn't just see a film that NEEDS to be seen by ANYONE looking for a couple of hours of quality, substantial entertainment ! "Out of the Black" is a stirring, incredibly acted film about a small town and its secrets, as seen through the lives of two brothers whose dad has lost his life in a mysterious accident. What distinguishes this film from others on video is that it's a crime it wasn't shown on the big screen. It's that good. When the film ended, I actually shed a tear or two. For quality entertainment, you can do no better than this small miracle. Sally Kirkland deserves another Oscar nod ! This is a Full Screen Presentation and comes with the Special Features of:
Director’s Commentary;
Behind-The-Scenes;
Cast Bios;
Trailers;
Optional Spanish Subtitles.
