Just in time
for Black History Month, Justin Simien’s feature film debut, “Dear White People,” is coining out on blu-ray DVD on Feb. 3, from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
The film never
got the kind of wide theatrical release, which was expected, so here’s
your chance to finally see it, if you wanted to but couldn’t.
Sure you can
watch it, perhaps later, on Netflix or some other VOD streaming option, but that
means that you’ll be missing out on a whole host of extra features.
extra features will include: a “The Making of ‘Dear White People'”
featurette, music videos, deleted scenes, outtakes, “racism Insurance” skits, “The
More You Know About Black People” (a PSA Web Series), “Apps: Black Friends When
You Need Them,” something called “LEAKED: Banned Winchester U Diversity,” and not
one, but two audio commentaries – one by writer/director Simien solo, and another with Simien joined by the main cast – Tessa
Thompson, Tyler James Williams, Teyonah Parris and Brandon Bell.
