Now 10, she doesn’t speak English and even though her Kiowa family has been killed by soldiers, she’s resistant to being rescued and leaving her Indian life and ways behind. Kidd decides to deliver the somber little girl to her aunt and uncle in Castroville, Texas, but the journey is a dangerous one. Available on DVD/Blu-ray, Digital and VOD March 23.
Soul – Struggling jazz musician Joe (Jamie Foxx) can’t believe his luck when an audition lands a gig that very night. As he’s walking home, elated by his success, he takes a misstep that sends him to a fantastical place where he’s is forced to think about what it truly means to have a soul. There he meets 22 (Tina Fey), a soul who doesn’t think life on Earth is all it’s cracked up to be, no matter what Joe tells her. To their surprise, they discover Joe is still alive, but unconscious in a hospital bed, and they rush to figure out how to get Joe’s soul back to his earthly body. Available on DVD/Blu-ray March 23. Also streaming on Disney+.
