There will be a romantic comedy doctor in Blu-ray's house this October.
In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox has slated 'The Heart Specialist' for Blu-ray on October 4.
Making its debut at the Boston Film Festival (“Audience Award” winner) and the Urban World Film Festival (“Best Film” winner), 'The Heart Specialist' tickles the funny bone as it resuscitates the love lives of a sassy cast of characters.
Smooth-talking lothario Ray Howard (Brian J. White, “Men of a Certain Age”), a young Harvard Medical School graduate, arrives for his internship at a hospital in South Florida to pursue his ex-girlfriend Valerie (Grammy Award®-winner Mya, 'Chicago') who can’t forgive his womanizing ways. When his supervisor, Dr. Sidney Zachary (NAACP Image Award®-nominee Wood Harris, “The Wire”), discovers that Ray has put the moves on his own girlfriend, nurse Donna (BET Award®-winner Zoe Saldana, 'Avatar,' 'Star Trek'), the two conspire with the rest of the hospital staff, patients, and friends to teach Ray a lesson—not just about medicine, but also about true love.
'The Heart Specialist' features stellar supporting performances from Marla Gibbs (“The Jeffersons”), Leon Robinson ('Cool Runnings'), Method Man ('How High'), Thomas ‘Nephew Tommy’Miles (“The Mo’Nique Show”), Jasmine Guy (“Another World”), Scott Paulin (“Castle”), Kenneth Choi ('Captain America: The First Avenger'), Terrence J (“106 & Park”), and comic legend Ed Asner ('Up').
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include additional scenes.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
