Award-winning actors Gael García Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries, Amores Perros, Babel) and Alice Braga (I Am Legend, City of God, Elysium) star in the highly acclaimed action adventure film, Ardor, arriving on DVD (plus Digital HD) October 6 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The film is currently available on Digital HD and On Demand.

Adding a fresh, contemporary spin to the classical Western film genre, Ardor made its world premiere as an Official Selection at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Hailed as “smoldering,” (The Hollywood Reporter), the action-packed adventure was written and directed by Pablo Fendrik (Blood Appears). Ardor is an international co-production presented by US-based Participant Media, the film’s co-producers are Magma Cine (Argentina), Bananeira Filmes (Brazil) and Manny Films (France).

Ardor ignites the screen in this thrilling and sexy new take on the classic Western.

When a gang of ruthless bandits set fire to a remote family farm and kidnap the farm-owner's daughter Vania (Braga), help arrives in the form of Kaí (García Bernal), a mysterious man who emerges from the rain forest.

With the grace of a jaguar, Kaí rescues Vania and plunges into a lethal game of cat and mouse with the gangsters. With the hornet's nest now stirred, Kai and Vania must decide how far they will go to preserve the farm and their vanishing way of life.

The Ardor DVD, including a behind-the-scenes featurette, will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $19.98.
