Outstanding Lead Actress – Kerry Washington
DVD with Digital HD & Blu-ray® with Digital HD will street on August 2, 2016
Nominated for two 2016 Emmy Awards® including Outstanding Television Movie and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie (Kerry Washington), the HBO Film will be arriving on Blu-ray and DVD August 2nd.
In July 1991, President George H.W. Bush nominated Judge Clarence Thomas to fill Justice Thurgood Marshall’s seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. In October, during the final days of Thomas’ confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, both Newsday and NPR broke the story that one of Thomas’ former employees, law professor Anita Hill, had accused him of sexually harassing her ten years earlier. These revelations triggered a maelstrom of events, with both Hill and Thomas testifying about the allegations before a stunned and riveted television audience. The release includes brief discussions with Washington and Pierce on the historical impact of the hearings as well as “Character Spot” featuring cast members discussing the character they play.
Confirmation features “powerful” (Variety), “affecting and nuanced performances” (Los Angeles Times) from an all-star cast lead by Washington (Emmy® and Golden Globe nominee for Scandal), Wendell Pierce (HBO’s Treme and The Wire), Greg Kinnear (Oscar® and Golden Globe nominee for As Good as It Gets), Jeffrey Wright (Emmy® and Golden Globe winner for HBO’s Angels in America), Eric Stonestreet (Emmy® winner for Modern Family) and Jennifer Hudson (Oscar® winner for Dreamgirls). The film was written by Susannah Grant (Oscar® nominee for Erin Brockovich) and directed by Rick Famuyiwa (Dope).
You can purchase Confirmation on Blu-ray on Amazon.com for $19.12
