Zoot Suit (Special Edition) (Blu-ray)
Part fascinating fact, part dazzling fiction, Zoot Suit is Luis Valdezs (La Bamba) blistering film adaptation of his own critically acclaimed stage drama based on the zoot suit riots that rocked 1940s Los Angeles. When barrio leader Henry Reyna (Daniel Valdez, The China Syndrome) and a group of his friends are unjustly convicted on circumstantial evidence and sent to San Quentin, activist lawyers Alice Bloomfield (Tyne Daly, The Enforcer) and George Shearer (Charles Aidman, Kotch) fight the blatant racially motivated miscarriage of justice to win Henry and his friends their freedom. Featuring Edward James Olmos (Stand and Deliver) in the role of the mythical Pachuco that catapulted him to stardom, Zoot Suit is a scorchingly searing and seductively provocative work that skillfully blends action, drama, romance and music! Zoot Suit features a rousing score by the films star Daniel Valdez and beautiful cinematography by David Myers (THX 1138).
