Experience life from a unique perspective with the emotionally
compelling film, Touched with Fire, arriving on Digital HD May
24 and on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and On
Demand June 7 from Lionsgate. Katie Holmes (Batman Begins) and

realities of life in the passionate story of unexpected love.
Hailed as “Katie Holmes’ best performance in years!” by the
Huffington Post, the film was an official selection at the 2015
SXSW Film Festival and a New York Times Critic’s Pick. From
Executive Producer Spike Lee (Chi-raq) and writer/director Paul
Dalio (Faith, Love and Whiskey).
SYNOPSIS: Katie Holmes and Luke Kirby star as two poets with bipolar disorders whose art is fueled by their emotional extremes. When they meet in a treatment facility, their chemistry is instant and intense, driving each other to new heights. They pursue their passion, which breaks outside the bounds of sanity and swings them from fantastical highs to tormented lows, until they ultimately must choose between sanity and love.

presented in widescreen in a 2.40:1 aspect ration preserving its
theatrical format. The picture is just flawless. Not only the
