Product Notes

THE DISCOVERERS Griffin Dunne leads an award-winning ensemble in this hilarious, heartfelt road movie about a family forced on a Lewis and Clark historical reenactment trek, who discover themselves and each other as they journey across America. "Griffin Dunne is pitch perfect." - Variety "Very Funny." - New York Post "Smart, canny and sweet... Full of grace notes and small surprises." - Vanity Fair Washed-up history professor Lewis Birch (Griffin Dunne) takes his begrudging teenagers on a road trip to a conference in hopes of jumpstarting his career and reconnecting with his kids. But, when Lewis's estranged father goes missing on a Lewis and Clark historical reenactment trek, they're forced to make a family detour. The Birch family find themselves on a journey of discovery and connection as they make their own passage across America. THE DISCOVERERS is a charming, bittersweet comedy and moving debut feature from writer/director Justin Schwarz. Led by Oscar- and Emmy-nominated Dunne's striking comeback performance, this heartfelt tale of family dysfunction and rediscovery features an award-winning ensemble, including Emmy Award-winner Stuart Margolin ("The Rockford Files"), Emmy-nominee Cara Buono ("Mad Men"), Madeleine Martin ("Californication"), David Rasche, (IN THE LOOP), Dreama Walker ("Don't Trust the B in Apt 23"), Devon Graye ("American Horror Stories"), NBR-winner Ann Dowd (COMPLIANCE), Becky Ann Baker ("Girls"), Scott Adsit ("30 Rock"), and John C. McGinley ("Scrubs"). THE DISCOVERERS creative team includes cinematographer Chris Blauvelt (BLING RING), production designer Kelly McGehee (WHAT MAISIE KNEW), editor Geraud Brisson (BIG SUR), and Oscar-nominated sound designer Ron Bochar (MONEYBALL). A New York Times Critics' Pick This DVD comes packed with Special Features, including Director and Producer audio commentary, deleted scenes, the theatrical trailer, a featurette, and more!
