It’s Blue Like Jazz, coming out on DVD from Lionsgate. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
One boy’s faith is tested on a journey to self-discovery as Lionsgate releases Blue Like Jazz on Blu-ray Disc, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand August 7, 2012. Based on The New York Times best-selling novel that swept the nation, Blue Like Jazz brings Donald Miller’s semi-autobiographical stories and reflections to life, following his path to self-discovery and progressive views on faith. Directed and co-written by GRAMMY Award nominee Steve Taylor (The Second Chance), Blue Like Jazz is also co-written by Miller and Ben Pearson (The Second Chance). Known for his Christian singing/songwriting and record producing, Taylor eloquently delves into the intricacies of friendships, faith and finding one’s self to reveal that everybody belongs somewhere. This film was also made possible by a dedicated fan base that refused to let this project fall through the cracks. In starting the “Save Blue Like Jazz” Kickstarter grassroots campaign, fans not only raised $350,000 in one month to bring this project into theaters, but in doing so congregated a passionate, built in fan base committed to spreading the word about the film’s release. The Kickstarter donors hosted pre-screenings, enlisted street teams to sell out screens in advance and were actively engaged in social media reaching out to their peers and communities. The campaign was successful in attracting the largest audience by utilizing people who believe in the story as ambassadors of the film.
Marshall Allman (HBO’s “True Blood”) gives a solid performance as Don, a pious nineteen-year-old, who uproots himself from his Southern Baptist upbringing and ventures to Portland where one new experience after another teaches him the true meaning of life. (The New York Times) hailed the film as “sincere and literary,” while (Paste Magazine) deemed it “witty, provocative and life-affirming.” Blue Like Jazz also stars Claire Holt (TV’s “The Vampire Diaries”), Tania Raymonde (TV’s “Lost“), Justin Welborn (TV’s “Body of Proof”) with Eric Lange (TV’s “Victorious”), Jason Marsden (Transformers: Rescue Bots), Will McKinney (Super Zeroes) and Jenny Littleton (Deadline).
