'Won't Back Down,' filmed in Pittsburgh, gets DVD date

Written by Barbara Vancheri on .


"Won't Back Down," the made-in-Pittsburgh movie starring Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal as women trying to take over a failing school, will be on Blu-ray and DVD on Jan. 15.

It will have deleted scenes with optional commentary by director Daniel Barnz, a tribute to teachers and an extra about the importance of education.

I found it oddly, aggressively anti-union and its assertion that it was "inspired by actual events" somewhat misleading. In case you missed the review, here's a link.
