“The Yellow Birds” has been released on DVD and Blu-Ray on August 14, following an on-demand release back in June. If your reaction is “The Yellow… what?”, here’s a little catch-up. The contemporary war drama was announced back in 2015 and went on sale at Cannes the next year. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2017 and was held back over 1 1/2 years, probably to await the release of “Solo: A Star Wars Story” with its very own Alden Ehrenreich, in hopes to make a bigger splash. As the story goes, “Solo” didn’t make an impression as all, and despite the wait, “The Yellow Birds” was quietly released on-demand and now on home-video. It doesn’t surprise too much, since war movies continue to not have a market for a long time now, and not even Jennifer Aniston’s involvement would secure a solid box office response. She and Toni Collette play the mothers of two boys sent to Iraq, with only one coming back. Make sure to rent or buy it, it’s a solid movie.
