For all of my local DMV readers consider this your official invitation to see the new film Kicks before it hits theaters this Friday, September 16th. I’ve partnered with Focus World so your movie night/date night is on me this week. I have 25 passes (that admit 2) up for grabs.
Synopsis: When his hard-earned kicks get snatched by a local hood, Fifteen-year old Brandon and his two best friends go on an ill-advised mission across the Bay Area to retrieve the stolen sneakers. Boasting a strong ensemble cast, and featuring a memorable lead performance by newcomer Jahking Guillory, the film transcends a deceptively traditional hero’s journey to deliver an entertaining and sobering look at the realities of inner-city life, the concept of manhood and the fetishization of sneaker culture.
As the winner of the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival for Best Cinematography in a U.S. Narrative Feature Film (Cinematography by Michael Ragen), I am beyond excited to see this movie. The film is described as :
Visually and thematically rich, with an amazing soundtrack of both hip-hop classics and Bay Area favorites, KICKS creates an authentic and original portrait of a young man drowning in the expectations of machismo.
