Friday October 10, 7:30 PM at the Harris Theater
(US; 2014; 99 min.)
Director: Patrik-Ian Polk
Known for his awarding winning 2001 film “Punks,” African-American singer, songwriter, actor, writer and director Patrik-Ian Polk looks to his Mississippi hometown for inspiration in crafting this fearless work.
Gifted young actor Julian Walker gives a wonderfully nuanced performance as Randy, a black teen who comes out to his parents (Mo’Nique of “Precious” and Isaiah Washington of “Grey’s Anatomy”), forcing the entire family to examine their relationships, community and faith.
Critically acclaimed actor Terrell Tilford (“The DL Chronicles”) appears as the family’s conservative but well-meaning pastor.
There will be a Q&A after the film with Producer, Keith Brown and Director, Patrik-Ian Polk!
