If you haven't seen Corey Grant's comedy/drama Dysfunctional Friends, AND you'll be attending the SXSW Film Festival (or if you already live in Austin, TX where the festival is held) you'll have an opportunity to see the film when it screens as a SXSW Community Screening on Sunday March 11, at 4pm

The movie's ensemble cast comprises several names of young Black Hollywood actors and actresses you'll immediately be familiar with, like (other than the aforementioned Persia White) Meagan Good, Tatyana Ali, Essence Atkins, Reagan Gomez, Stacey Dash, Stacy Keibler, Keith Robinson, Jason Weaver, Wesley Jonathan, Vanessa Simmons, and a few others.

NFL pro Terrell Owens also co-stars by the way - in what will be his big screen debut. 

Datari Turner, who also produced the film, and who we chatted with during last week podcast, co-stars as well.

Here's the film's synop:

A Comedy/ Drama reminiscent of The Big Chill, Nine estranged friends are reunited after their larger then life friend unexpectedly dies. The friends who haven't seen each other in years are all forced to stay at their deceased friends estate for the weekend and must reconnect with each other working through all of their issues in order to each collect their inheritance.

The trailer and full poster for the film follow:
