We’ve been tracking writer and director John Sayles’ new film Go For Sisters because it’s an excellent film that's definitely worth your time and attention to check out. And it’s currently making its way across the country in limited engagements.

When was the last time you saw a dramatic film with two black women in the lead roles?

Starring Yolonda Ross and LisaGay Hamilton, Jai Tiggett recently summarized the film in her interview with the two leads (HERE),as being about “two childhood friends, Bernice and Fontayne, who were once so close they could "go for sisters." After losing track of each other for two decades, the women are reunited by chance in a parole office, with Bernice (Hamilton) now a no-nonsense parole officer and Fontayne (Ross) an ex-convict trying to clean up her life. When Bernice's son goes missing, she enlists the help of Fontayne and a retired detective, who’s losing his eyesight (played by Edward James Olmos) on a journey that takes them across the Mexican border and into a world of danger."

And beginning next month, starting on Dec 13th, the film will play a week long engagement in Chicago at the Gene Siskel Film Center.
