A History of ViolenceA History of Violence
Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by David Cronenberg
Starring Viggo Mortensen, Maria Bello, William Hurt, Ed Harris

“A History of Violence” didn’t get much exposure during its theatrical run, but you can catch it on DVD March 14. In the film, based on the graphic novel of the same name, Viggo Mortensen plays against type as Tom Stall, a meek small-town family man who’s instantly transformed into a local hero after he overpowers two thieves attempting to rob his diner. But his newfound fame brings attention from more than just his neighbors when a disfigured big-city crime boss out for revenge arrives claiming that Tom is actually Joey Cusack, a former mob underling. Can Tom prove his innocence or is he really a criminal with a history of violence?

EXTRAS: Director David Cronenberg offers commentary. Plus, there are a deleted scene, a documentary called “Acts of Violence,” and three featurettes — “Violence’s History: U.S. Vs. International Versions,” “Too Commercial for Cannes” and “The Unmaking of Scene 44.”
