Breaking Glass Pictures and Libertine Films is bringing the directorial debut of “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart’s mother to Blu-ray and DVD!

“K-11,” directed by Jules Stewart, will be on DVD and Blu-ray April 23. The film, priced at $24.99 (DVD) and $29.99 (Blu-ray), is the dramatic tale of a man ending up in K-11, the Los Angeles County Jail’s transgender inmate unit. Currently, “K-11” is screening in select theaters in fifteen cities in the U.S. and is available nationwide on Video On Demand.

Before making her directorial debut, Stewart has been a script supervisor with over thirty years of Hollywood experience. Stewart formed Libertine Films with her business partner, producer Tom Wright, in 2010. After “K-11,” Stewart and Wright’s first film, Stewart will start work on thriller “The Locked House,” which is set to be released in 2014.

Here’s more about the film:

K-11 stars Goran Visnjic (ABC-TV’s new hit series “Red Widow”, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, “ER”) as Raymond Saxx, a businessman whose drug use leads him to incarceration in the section of the Los Angeles County Jail reserved for LGBT inmates and firmly under the heel of Mousey (Mexican superstar Kate Del Castillo, Under the Same Moon, “La Reina del Sur”, “Weeds”), a malicious transgendered inmate. Saxx has no idea how he got there — all he knows is he needs to get the hell out…alive and intact. Aggressive cellmates, corrupt officials and his own issues are just a few challenges he faces with while he pieces together a way out of this entirely new kind of rabbit hole.

“K-11” also stars DB Sweeney (“Taken 2”), Jason Mewes (“Jay & Silent Bob,” “Clerks”), Portia Doubleday (Kimberly Peirce’s “Carrie,” “Youth in Revolt,” “Almost Kings”) and Tommy “Tiny” Lister (“The Fifth Element,” “Jackie Brown”). Stewart’s son, Cameron, makes his film debut as Sledgehammer; Kristen also makes a special contribution to the film.
The Blu-ray and DVD will come with special features such as a commentary by Stewart and Wright, deleted scenes, interviews with cast and crew, a behind-the-scenes featurette, the music video for “My Liberty” by cast member Billy Morrison and a photo gallery.
