The emotional and timely story of Elegance Bratton comes to light in The Inspection, arriving on Blu-ray™ and DVD February 21 from A24 and Lionsgate. With great reviews coming out of the Toronto Film Festival, the film quickly garnished award buzz including Jeremy Pope’s first-time Golden Globe nominee for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for his portrayal of Ellis French. The Inspection will be available at the suggested retail price of $21.99 for Blu-ray and $19.98 for DVD.
In Elegance Bratton’s deeply moving film inspired by his own story, a young, gay Black man, rejected by his mother and with few options for his future, decides to join the Marines, doing whatever it takes to succeed in a system that would cast him aside. But even as he battles deep-seated prejudice and the grueling routines of basic training, he finds unexpected camaraderie, strength, and support in this new community, giving him a hard-earned sense of belonging that will shape his identity and forever change his life.
