'An Affair of the Heart' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Wed May 8, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The acclaimed Rick Springfield documentary will rock Blu-ray in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, Breaking Glass Pictures is working on 'An Affair of the Heart' for a Blu-ray release on July 16.

The Grammy award winner was quoted as saying, "It was a real laugh/cry kind of thing. As a person, I am kind of peripheral. It is about their connection, what they view and how they interpreted who I was, and the right times that music that they liked came along to help them to get through difficult stuff." He adds, "I get the stories. I am very proud to be part of it, but it is more their power than mine."

For most fans, Rick Springfield is much more than a celebrity crush; some have overcome deep trauma by connecting with his music, for others he has served as a catalyst for life-long friendships, and without fail all have a unique bond with him. A fascinating look at the fans of a musical icon, 'An Affair of the Heart' is a soulful examination of those who turned a man into a legend. If his 17 Top 40 hits, including "Jessie's Girl", or his run on "General Hospital" as Dr. Noah Drake haven't convinced you of his enduring star power, watching him rock out with Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters with a new track in the Sound City documentary most certainly will.

Since its premiere at the Florida Film Festival, 'An Affair of the Heart' has received praise and awards on the film festival and theatrical circuits. The Hollywood Reporter hailed the film as "a feel-good and at times laugh-out-loud documentary" and the New York Times called it "a refuge from the mundane." 'An Affair of the Heart's many awards include the Nashville Film Festival's Gibson Impact of Music Award and the Boston Film Festival's Best Music Award.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but the Blu-ray will contain over 2 hours of bonus features and will have a suggested list price of $29.99.
