New Line Cinema is bringing the Hispanic-themed boxing film, The Price Of Glory (Special Edition) to DVD in November.
Written by former New York Times sports columnist Phil Berger, this film follows Arturo Ortega (Jimmy Smits), a once-promising middleweight fighter who pushes his sons into the sport of boxing and manages them with an iron fist. He takes each of them from starry-eyed young fighters to top-ranked contenders. His training style boils over with passion for their victories and bitterness over his own lost dreams. Sonny respects his father but seeks a life outside the ring. Jimmy, the defiant middle son, buckles under the pressure and turns to drugs. Johnny has his father’s rage and ambition. His world-class talent brings shocking tragedy to the family. An explosive championship match is their last hope for pulling together.
“The Price of Glory” was directed by Carlos Avila and stars Jimmy Smits, Ron Perlman, Jon Seda, Ernesto Hernandez, Clifton Collins Jr., and Maria del Mar.
New Line is presenting the movie with a choice of Pan & Scan or Widescreen viewing, with a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. Extras include an audio commentary, deleted footage, a trailer, and the DVD-ROM feature of jumping from script to scene.
The disc is scheduled for release on November 14th. The suggested retail price is $24.98.
