Brian Presley and Kurt Russell in TOUCHBACK Coming to DVD/Blu-ray

Not all films that get pushed straight to DVD/Blu-ray are bad. Sometimes there’s just no market for it at that time. That’s the case with Touchback. A film about a guy who was on his way to getting a full-ride scholarship from his high school football skills when all of a sudden a terrible football injury takes him out of the game for good. Now as a grown-up with a family of his own and a less than satisfying job, he wakes up young again (as so many films turn back time for another chance) and has an opportunity to do it all differently. But will he? He may never get the family he has and loves again. Touchback will be available on Blu-ray DVD combo September 4th, 2012.

Would You Give Up Everything You Love, For a Shot at Everything You’ve Wanted?

TOUCHBACK is a heartwarming, family-friendly, uplifting film which explores the unique opportunity for a second chance to live the life you always wanted.
In the tradition of Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, and Angels in the Outfield, Touchback tells the story of former high school football star turned farmer and family man, Scott Murphy (Brian Presley) who finds himself with a unique opportunity to revisit his glory days during his high school state championship game where he permanently injured his knee in a game-winning play.  Given a second shot at football fame, Scott seeks counsel from Coach Hand (Kurt Russell) his longtime mentor on and off the field, to help him decide whether to let his fate unfold, or follow a path that will change his future.

About Lost in Reviews

Named after the 2003 film Lost in Translation, Lost in Reviews set out to embody the philosophy of this film in a website. Discouraged with the lack of passion in modern day criticism, founders Angela Davis and Ryan Davis created the entertainment review site in 2009. The idea being that, this would be the go-to place for people to find that something that was missing in their life through film or music.

Lost in Reviews is based in Kansas City, Dallas and Chicago. The site covers all aspects of entertainment, but tries to focus more on the easily over-looked. Lost in Reviews is the home to the starving filmmaker and indie bands everywhere. If you’re looking for a voice or trying to share in a vision, then Lost in Reviews just may be the place to help you get there. As the tag line for Lost in Translation says: “Everyone wants to be found.” So find yourself Lost in Reviews.
