After a wildly successful theatrical release in more than 50 markets across the country that began earlier this year, award-winning writer/director Del Shores’ (“Blues For Willadean,” “Southern Baptist Sissies,” “Queer A Folk”) latest film, A Very Sordid Wedding, the outrageously funny sequel to his play, movie and TV series Sordid Lives, is available on DVD, Blu-ray and iTunes on October 17. The DVD and Blu-ray include 40 minutes of extra features: bloopers, deleted scenes, 20 minutes of cast interviews on Sordid history and set stories, Levi Kreis’ on-set performance for cast and crew, chatting with Whoopi Goldberg and the official music video for the closing credits song “This Is Who We Are” from Blake McIver.
The Huffington Post proclaims A Very Sordid Wedding as “much more than a wonderful movie, but a game-changer In LGBT politics,” Film Journal International raves, “If you liked the original, the overdue sequel to ‘Sordid Lives’ will both delight you and warm your ever-lovin’ heart” and The Hollywood Reporter says the film “offers some undeniably entertaining moments, and its talented ensemble, clearly encouraged to pull out all the stops, delivers their comic shtick with admirable gusto.”
The film brings back an all-star ensemble cast of characters, rooted in the Southern Baptist world of Winters, Texas, in the weeks following the U.S. Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage equality ruling where not everyone there is ready to accept it.
