    Details: Product Description Likeable family man and smalltown diner owner Tom Stall (Viggo Mortensen) is living his life, minding his own business. Then an act of heroism puts him on all the news channels, and certain people take notice – Made men from Philly who are dead sure Stall is the ex-mob assassin they want to find and whack. Mistaken Identity? Or is Tom actually a stone-cold killer? Director David Cronenberg (The Fly, Eastern Promises) ramps up the tension in a fierce, thought-provoking thriller that also stars Maria Bello, Ed Harris, and William Hurt (an Academy Award nominee and Los Angeles and New York Film Critics Award winner for his powerful performance). You won't be able to look away. Amazon.ca On the surface, David Cronenberg may seem an unlikely candidate to direct A History of Violence, but dig deeper and you'll see that he's the right man for the job. As an intellectual seeker of meaning and an avowed believer in Darwinian survival of the fittest, Cronenberg knows that the story of mild-mannered small-town diner proprietor Tom Stall (Viggo Mortensen) is in fact a multilayered examination of inbred human behavior, beginning when Tom's skillful killing of two would-be robbers draws unwanted attention to his idyllic family life in rural Indiana. He's got a loving wife (Maria Bello) and young daughter (Heidi Hayes) who are about to learn things about Tom they hadn't suspected, and a teenage son (Ashton Holmes) who has inherited his father's most prominent survival trait, manifesting itself in ways he never expected. By the time Tom has come into contact with a scarred villain (Ed Harris) and connections that lead him to a half-crazy kingpin (William Hurt, in a spectacular cameo), Cronenberg has plumbed the dark depths of human nature so skillfully that A History of Violence stands well above the graphic novel that inspired it (indeed, Cronenberg was unaware of the source material behind Josh Olson's chilling adaptation). With hard-hitting violence that's as sudden as it is graphically authentic, this is A History of Violence that's worthy of serious study and widespread acclaim. --Jeff Shannon Special Features Director David Cronenberg Commentary "Acts of Violence" Documentary - A comprehensive, Behind-the-Scenes Journey on the Making of the Film Three Riveting Featurettes: "Violence's History: United States vs International Version", "Too Commercial for Cannes", and "The Unmaking of Scene 44" Deleted Scenes From the Contributor Bonus Features Include: Feature commentary by Director David Cronenberg; Deleted scene with commentary by director David Cronenberg; “Acts of Violence” documentary; “Violence's History: United States Version vs. International Version” featurette; “The Unmaking of Scene 44” featurette; “Too Commercial for Cannes” featurette; Theatrical trailer
