Henry Thomas captured America's heart as Elliott in the 1982 classic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, and he hasn't stopped working since. He starred in one of my personal childhood favorites, Cloak and Dagger, and in notable films such as Valmont, Legends of the Fall, Suicide Kings, All The Pretty Horses, Gangs of New York, Dear John, and many more. The actor returns to play music icon Hank Williams in The Last Ride, currently available on Blu-ray and DVD. Set just days before the country singer passed away, this drama is based on the true story of a young man (Jesse James) hired to drive Hank to a series of concerts over the New Year's Eve holiday, and the bond that formed between these very different men.

Henry Thomas (Dear John) plays singer-songwriter Williams, country music’s original bad boy. In the late 1940s, he quickly rose to super-stardom but had made a wreck of his life.
At the end of 1952, Williams was on his way to a couple New Year’s shows in West Virginia and Ohio and hired a local kid (Jesse James, Jumper) to drive him from Montgomery, Ala., so he could make things right in his life.
The drama film, which features new versions of Williams’ songs, is directed by Harry Thomason, stepping out from TV for the first time in 33 years.
Rated PG-13, The Last Ride was screened in a handful of theaters, making the DVD and Blu-ray its biggest release. »
