It only takes one voice to change history. HBO Home Entertainment proudly presents the June 27th Digital HD and August 2nd DVD with Digital HD and Blu-ray with Digital HD release of the critically acclaimed Confirmation. The film details the explosive Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings, which brought the country to a standstill and forever changed the way we think about sexual harassment, victims’ rights and modern-day race relations. It looks behind the curtain of Washington politics, depicting a pivotal moment in American culture that became a turning point in workplace equality and gender politics.
In July 1991, President George H.W. Bush nominated Judge Clarence Thomas to fill Justice Thurgood Marshall’s seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. In October, during the final days of Thomas’ confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, both Newsday and NPR broke the story that one of Thomas’ former employees, law professor Anita Hill, had accused him of sexually harassing her ten years earlier. These revelations triggered a maelstrom of events, with both Hill and Thomas testifying about the allegations before a stunned and riveted television audience. The release includes brief discussions with Washington and Pierce on the historical impact of the hearings as well as “Character Spot” featuring cast members discussing the character they play.
Confirmation features “powerful” (Variety), “affecting and nuanced performances” (Los Angeles Times) from an all-star cast lead by Kerry Washington (Emmy® and Golden Globe nominee for Scandal), Wendell Pierce (HBO’s Treme and The Wire), Greg Kinnear (Oscar® and Golden Globe nominee for As Good as It Gets), Jeffrey Wright (Emmy® and Golden Globe winner for HBO’s Angels in America), Eric Stonestreet (Emmy® winner for Modern Family) and Jennifer Hudson (Oscar® winner for Dreamgirls). The film was written by Susannah Grant (Oscar® nominee for Erin Brockovich) and directed by Rick Famuyiwa (Dope).
