The Company You Keep will be available for purchase online and in stores beginning on August 13th.
When Jason Sinai, one of the last Vietnam-era fugitives still wanted on murder charges for a robbery gone wrong in 1974, encounters a young newspaper reporter in search of a story, he must abandon years of safe underground life for the dangerous life of the road — traveling across American and deep into his past. Set against the rise and fall of the radical anti-war group the Weather Underground, The Company You Keep is a sweeping American saga about sacrifice, the ecstatic righteousness of youth, and the tension between political ideals and family loyalties.
The Company You Keep was released in April of 2013 and grossed over $5 million at the box office in a limited release.
The Blu-ray will include several special features, including: Behind the Scenes: The Movement featurette; Behind the Scenes: The Script, Preparation and The Cast featurette; On The Red Carpet featurette; and The Company You Keep Press Conference with Robert Redford, Stanley Tucci, Brit Marling, and Jackie Evancho.
