Open your heart to an ordinary family's extraordinary journey when A SHINE OF RAINBOWS arrives on DVD on March 15th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
A Heartland Festival "Truly Moving Picture" Award Recipient, A SHINE OF RAINBOWS tells the inspiring story of hope, transformation and love while surrounded by the beauty and power of nature. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun describes this lovely film as "A feel-good movie" and we could all use a little more of that these days, right?
An orphaned boy named Tomás is adopted by Maire O'Donnell (Connie Nielsen; Gladiator) to live on a whimsical Irish isle filled with new friends, secret caves and a lost baby pup seal stranded on the coast. But when Maire's reluctant husband Alec (Aidan Quinn; Legends of the Fall, Unknown) refuses to accept Tomás as his own son, the boy drifts down a fateful path of adventure and self-discovery, illuminating how rainbows can shine around - and within - us all.
The scenery is breathtaking and you just can't help but smile when you watch this story unfold. Finally, a nice flick for the whole fam. The Atlantic Film Festival described it as "A touching story about the transformational power of love." Variety exclaimed "Irresistibly good-natured."
Directed by Emmy-nominated director Vic Sarin, the whole family will enjoy this touching story about acceptance and self-discovery. In addition, the all-new DVD includes a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film entitled "So Many Colours: The Making of A Shine of Rainbows."
A SHINE OF RAINBOWS will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $22.98 U.S. Pre-book is February 16th.
