David Hewlett’s The Whistleblower Coming to Blu-ray

DAVID HEWLETT’s The Whistleblower is getting a Blu-ray release on January 24, 2012, according to High Def Digest. The movie, which Hewlett filmed in Romania in the fall of 2009, was screened at several independent film festivals prior to its recent limited release in American theaters. This description from High Def Digest:

Academy Award winners Rachel Weisz (‘The Constant Gardner’) and Vanessa Redgrave (‘Julia’) head a powerful cast that includes Oscar® Nominee David Strathairn (‘Good Night and Good Luck’) in writer-director Larysa Kondracki’s harrowing dramatic thriller. When Nebraska cop Kathryn Bolkovac (Weisz) accepts a U.N. peacekeeper position in post-war Bosnia, she uncovers a deadly sex trafficking ring. After learning that fellow peacekeepers and military contractors are involved in the ghastly practice and its cover-up, Bolkovac risks her own life to save the lives of others and expose the corruption. With masterful acting and a heart-racing plot, ‘The Whistleblower’ is an acclaimed film inspired by actual events and includes stellar supporting performances from Benedict Cumberbatch (“Sherlock”), Monica Bellucci (‘The Matrix Reloaded’) and David Hewlett (“Stargate: Atlantis”).

It becomes relevant again every 12 months. It’s fun to be in something that people can either punch up on their computer every year or pull the disk out of their CD cabinet and enjoy it, year after year, because the music is so great.” Visit Kik Axe Music for more information about the release, including a chance to obtain a CD signed by Picardo himself.
