The drama When We Last Spoke will be issued on DVD June 1 from the MVD Entertainment Group.
The Dove-approved film follows sisters Juliet (Darby Camp) and Evangeline (Chandler Head), who in 1967 are abandoned by their mother at their unsuspecting grandparents’ farm in the small Southern town of Fireside.
Stunned by their sudden arrival, the grandparents — tender-hearted Walt (Corbin Bernsen) and champion fiddler Ruby (Melissa Gilbert) — graciously stand in for the missing parents and create a loving family.
The story is punctuated by the unexpected appearance of Walt’s ailing mother — eccentric, Emily Dickinson-quoting Itasca (the late Cloris Leachman).
The family adventure Bernie the Dolphin arrives on DVD and digital Feb. 5 from Lionsgate.
Lola Sultan and Kevin Sorbo star in the story of two siblings who befriend a dolphin, Bernie, and devise a plan to save the beach and protect sea life. Also starring Patrick Muldoon and Logan Allen, the film is approved by the Dove Foundation for all ages.
The DVD ( $14.98) includes a behind-the-scenes featurette.
