'The Other Son' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Jan 2, 2013 at 08:00 AM PST by

The 2012 French drama from director Lorraine Levy is headed for Blu-ray in March.

In an early announcement to retailers, Entertainment One is working on 'The Other Son' for Blu-ray on March 19.

Joseph (Jules Sitruk), an 18-year-old musician preparing to join the Israeli army for his mandatory military service, lives at home in a comfortable suburb of Tel Aviv with his parents, France-born physician Orith (Emmanuelle Devos) and Israel-born army commander Alon Silbers (Pascal Elbé). A blood test for Joseph's military service reveals that he is not their biological son; during the Gulf War Joseph was evacuated from a clinic along with another baby; both were given back to the wrong families. While the Palestinian Joseph went to Tel Aviv with the Silbers, their actual Jewish son, Yacine (Medhi Dehbi) was brought to the West Bank by the Arab couple, Said (Khalifa Natour) and Leila (Areen Omari). The revelation turns the lives of the two families upside-down, forcing them to reassess their respective identities, values and beliefs.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95.
