Love Clive Owen? Me, too, and it seems like I haven’t seen him in anything in forever. He stars in a new movie now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD called THE CONFIRMATION, and I can tell you it’s definitely one to check out.
The movie, which is both funny and poignant, centers on 8-year-old Anthony (Jaeden Lieberher), who’s just a little uneasy about spending the weekend with his alcoholic, down-on-his-luck carpenter dad Walt, played by Clive Owen. Anthony’s mom Bonnie (Maria Bello) and her new husband Kyle (Matthew Modin) are headed to a Catholic retreat together.

Also uneasy about the situation is Walt, especially since their first day together is a series of characteristically unfortunate events, including his truck breaking down, his landlord locking him out of the house, and the theft of his toolbox, which he needs for an upcoming job.
As Walt and Anthony set about finding the guy who stole the tools and improvise around their other misfortunes, they begin to discover a true connection with each other, causing Walt to become a better father and Anthony to reveal the promise and potential of the good man he will become one day soon.
Clive Owen is terrific, and Jaeden Lieberher, who recently starred in Midnight Special, is amazing as young Anthony. Bob Nelson directs this movie, which also stars Patton Oswalt, Stephen Tobolowsky, Robert Forster and Tim Blake Nelson.
Look for Clive Owen up next in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, in theaters July 21, 2017. Jaeden Lieberher stars in The Book of Henry, in theaters Sept. 30, 2016.
