Warner Bros announces The Way Back on Blu-ray and DVD
Over the years Ben Affleck has cemented himself as a prolific director and in my opinion it has made him an even better actor. He has had his ups and downs at the box office and in life, but his latest, The Way Back reteams him with The Accountant director James Gavin O’Connor and looks to be his most personal journey yet.
The Way Back follows Jack Cunningham who once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full university scholarship, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is spiraling down, triggered by an unspeakable loss, and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life. When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boys start to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him. But will it be enough to fill the void, heal the deep wounds of his past, and set him on the road to redemption?
