Holding On

After a brutal murder a group of Londoners struggle for survival in the BAFTA and RTS award-winning BBC crime drama, Holding On (1997), starring David Morrissey (The Walking Dead) and Phil Daniels (Quadrophenia). Holding On The Complete Series comes to DVD on 9 November 2015 courtesy of Simply Media. After a beautiful young woman is found brutally murdered, a diverse group of Londoners, connected to her in some way, are all forced to confront the way they live their lives. While some make the choice to fight injustice, others begin to sink even further into despair and degradation. Just as relevant now as it was in the 90s, Holding On is a compelling, gritty portrait of London in the early 1990s, and follows the interconnected lives of several characters under the strain of drugs, corruption and racism.

The Immortal Story, Welles' penultimate film as a director, a film described as a "sumptuous experience" (Time Out) has now been given a sumptuous, high definition transfer courtesy of Mr Bongo Films, with the Blu-ray due on 2 November 2015 marking its first HD release in any territory.

Fresh Dressed

The birth and history of hip hop has been well documented, from the music, block parties and digging in the crates for breaks to graffiti and breakdancing, all proving rich subjects for documentaries. But the accompanying fashion, the groundbreaking styles sported by early artists and fans of the genre, whose rush to find new threads, kicks and accessories went beyond Adidas sneakers and tracksuits to customised, graffiti jackets, Kangol hats and far, far beyond, hasn't been given the attention it deserves...Until now.

Fly feature documentary Fresh Dressed charts the innovative, weird and wonderful styles worn by hip-hop artists, rappers and crews from the inception of the movement through to the multi-million dollar fashion empires built by current megastars such as Sean "Puffy" Combs.

With funky, fat-laced Adidas, Kangol hats, and Cazal shades, a totally original look was born - Fresh - and it came from the black and brown side of town where another cultural force was revving up in the streets to take the world by storm. Hip-hop, and its aspirational relationship to fashion, would become such a force on the market that Tommy Hilfiger, in an effort to associate their brand with the cultural swell, would drive through the streets and hand out free clothing to kids on the corner.

As Kanye West - one of the many rap icons interviewed for Sacha Jenkins' Fresh Dressed - says: "Being fresh is more important than having money. The entire time I grew up, I only wanted money so I could be fresh."

Sean "Puffy" Combs, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Nas and many more all wax lyrical on the importance of being Fresh Dressed in this fascinating film, due in cinemas on 30 October 2015, courtesy of Dogwoof, following its London Film Festival Premiere. The film will then make its DVD bow on 9 November 2015.

Grace Of My Heart

Featuring a dazzling stellar cast, a stunning soundtrack and Martin Scorsese as executive producer, Grace Of My Heart hits all the right notes as it charts the inspirational story of a female singer-songwriter's struggle to make her mark in the dynamic American music scene of the 1960s and 1970s and comes to UK DVD for the first time ever. Inspired by the life of Carole King this wonderfully nostalgic and exuberant 1996 feature film runs in parallel to King's life and career and is released on DVD on 12 October 2015, courtesy of Odyssey and coincides with the Broadway hit Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, currently showing in London's West End. Set at the time when prodigiously talented singer-songwriters were fighting for recognition in a tough, male-dominated music industry, Grace Of My Heart traces the 'long and winding road' to stardom of Denise Waverly (Illeana Douglas - Six Feet Under), whose songs bring fame to other people - until she finds her own voice.
