    JEFF BRIDGES AND JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE HIT THE OPEN ROAD

    On DVD and Blu-ray™ Tuesday, November 17th
    From Anchor Bay Entertainment


    BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Four-time Academy Award® Nominee Jeff Bridges (Iron Man 1 & 2, The Big Lebowski) and Justin Timberlake (Alpha Dog) join forces in The Open Road, available on DVD and Blu-ray™ Tuesday, November 17th from Anchor Bay Entertainment (pre-book October 15th). A heartwarming comedy about the adult son of a baseball legend who, together with his girlfriend, embarks on a road trip with his estranged father, The Open Road, is written and directed by Michael Meredith (Land of Plenty, Three Days of Rain). SRP is $29.98 for the DVD and $34.98 for the Blu-ray™ edition.

    In The Open Road, minor leaguer Carlton Garrett (Justin Timberlake) takes an unexpected road trip to track down his estranged father, legendary baseball player Kyle Garrett (Jeff Bridges), when Carlton’s mother (Mary Steenburgen) becomes sick. Knowing his charming yet painfully immature dad’s likelihood to disappoint, Carlton enlists his on-again-off-again girlfriend Lucy (Kate Mara) for emotional support. Once reunited, Carlton struggles to deal with the series of misadventures caused by his father’s antics, including missed flights, car trouble, and bathroom brawls. Years of miscommunication, frustration and comically awkward attempts at bonding come to a head as the mismatched trio make their way from Ohio back home to Houston to reunite the family.

    The Open Road also features a stellar supporting cast that includes Kate Mara (Iron Man 2, “24”, Shooter), Harry Dean Stanton (“Big Love,” Inland Empire), Lyle Lovett (Short Cuts), and Mary Steenburgen (“Joan of Arcadia,” Step Brothers).

    Bonus features on The Open Road DVD and Blu-ray™ include audio commentary with writer/director Michael Meredith and actor Jeff Bridges, “Behind the Scenes of The Open Road,” and the theatrical trailer.

    Executive Producers are Gigi Pritzker, Deborah Del Prete, Kevin Fox, Wim Wenders, and Roy Scott MacFarland.
