HBO Home Entertainment has announced four titles available for digital download in May 2019.
Due May 6 is Native Son, the story of Bigger Thomas (Ashton Sanders), a young African-American living in Chicago who is hired as a chauffeur for affluent businessman Will Dalton (Bill Camp). As Thomas enters this seductive new world of money and power — including a precarious relationship with Dalton’s daughter, Mary (Margaret Qualley) — he faces unforeseen choices and perilous circumstances that will alter the course of his life forever. The cast also includes Nick Robinson, KiKi Layne, Elizabeth Marvel, David Alan Grier and Sanaa Lathan.
Arriving May 13 is Veep: Season 7, as well as Veep: The Complete Series. The final season of “Veep” finds Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) running for president again and facing new challenges and controversies.
Also due May 13 is Arthur Miller: Writer, a documentary about the celebrated playwright told from the perspective of his daughter, filmmaker Rebecca Miller.
Coming May 27 is The Truth About Killer Robots, which looks at several automation cases, from a factory in Germany to a bomb-carrying police droid in Dallas, raising questions of accountability and morality. Exploring the provocative viewpoints of engineers, journalists and philosophers, the film goes beyond sensational deaths to examine more subtle but pervasive ways that robots affect humanity.
