A father and son’s bond is the most important thing of all…in the Confirmation
An all-star cast headlines this touching drama coming soon to Lionsgate Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Clive Owen stars as Walt, an out-of-luck carpenter who suddenly finds himself caring for his estranged son Anthony (Jaeden Lieberher) for a weekend while his ex-wife (Maria Bello) and her new husband (Matthew Modine) head to a Catholic retreat. Neither father or son is initially happy about the arrangement, but through a series of events the two start to see each other in a different light. With understanding comes healing, and both embark on the journey of love that makes them stronger together and allows Walt to become the father he needs to be. The Confirmation will be hitting Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on June 7th, 2016!
