Hero is coming to DVD on September 16th, and I'm giving you the chance to win a copy early.
From producers of Alone Yet Not Alone, comes a heartfelt movie about legendary small town baseball coach, Joe Finn (Burgess Jenkins, Remember the Titans, Nashville, The Shunning), who after taking his shot as a scout for the big leagues returns home to discover the damage he's done by leaving his family behind. Now on a quest to rebuild his relationship with his son David, Joe forms a new baseball league to reinvigorate the underdog little league team his son had been coaching. Together, as father and son, they try to put away their differences and help bring their ragtag team of ball players, “The Gappers,” to victory.
Burgess, who has a child of his own, was excited about the film. “This movie really reinforces the importance of fathers in a child’s life. Sports can be that vehicle to solidify the bond.” George Escobar, a producer of Hero, wanted to make a movie that highlighted the real value in playing a sport and trying to win. “I grew up playing sports, and this idea of playing without winners and losers just seems like a missed opportunity to teach the kids how to train themselves to win. As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. A rival will push you harder than the desire to do your best.”
In a movie sure to inspire fathers and sons alike, Hero presents an all-star cast including Gregory Alan Williams (In the Line of Fire, The Preacher's Kid), R. Keith Harris (Big Fish), and Mark Joy (The Ultimate Gift). The film also includes a musical score by Grammy winner, Michael Omartian.
