Touchstone Pictures is ready to release the recent drama The Recruit on DVD this spring.
the CIA’s closed doors are opened, giving an insider’s view into the Agency: how trainees are recruited, how they are prepared for the spy game, and how they learn to survive in a world of secrets. James Clayton is one of the smartest graduating seniors in the country, and he’s just the person that Walter Burke wants in the Agency. James regards the CIA’s mission as an intriguing alternative to an ordinary life, but before he becomes an Ops Officer, James has to survive the Agency’s secret training ground, where green recruits are molded into seasoned veterans. As Burke teaches him the ropes and the rules of the game, James quickly rises through the ranks and in the process falls for Layla, one of his fellow recruits. When Burke taps him for a special assignment to root out a mole, it soon becomes clear that the CIA’s old maxims are true: “trust no one” and “nothing is what it seems.”
The DVD will be presented in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 sound and the interesting director’s original 1.78:1 enhanced for 16×9 screens which shows even more of the film than was presented in theaters. Special features include an audio commentery with director Roger Donaldson and star Colin Farrell the featurette “Spy School: Inside the CIA Training Program”, deleted scenes with optional commentary.
On May 27th, the CIA comes home with a suggested retail price of $29.99.
