Martin Starr and Dina Shihabi star in this romantic dramedy heading to Blu-ray in May. Pre-orders are now live.
In an early announcement to retailers, Cinedigm is preparing 'Amira & Sam' for Blu-ray on May 5.
To help adjust to coming home from war, Sam Seneca (Martin Starr, Silicon Valley, Freaks and Geeks, Knocked Up), a former Green Beret, takes a stab at a life-long dream: stand-up comedy. He also lands a high-paying job working for a Wall Street firm, run by his cousin Charlie (Paul Wesley, Before I Disappear, The Vampire Diaries). Amira (Dina Shihabi) fled Iraq after her brother was killed by U.S. soldiers. She's an illegal immigrant, living with her uncle Bassam (Laith Naklil, The Visitor), who was Sam's interpreter.
Amira has a run-in with the police, so Sam takes her under his wing. Despite their differences, Sam and Amira share a common bond as outsiders. The more time they spend together, the harder it is for them to combat their feelings for one another. Meanwhile, Sam becomes entangled in Charlie's investment scheme and Amira s trouble with the law escalates to the brink of deportation. As the film builds to a climax, Sam has an epiphany: in order to save Amira from being deported, he's forced to risk everything he fought so hard to defend.
Supplements have not been detailed yet, but the Blu-ray will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD MA 5.1 track.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.93.
