Yolonda Ross In 'Go For Sisters' - Best Supporting Female Nominee

As reported exclusively by ScreenDaily... 

Cinema Management Group (CMG) has picked up all international rights to the John Sayles' drama/thriller, Go For Sisters, which just world premiered at SXSW earlier this month.

Yolonda RossLisaGay Hamilton, Isaiah WashingtonEdward James Olmos, and Hector Elizondo all star in the film, which is described as follows:. 

The plot concerns two friends, Bernice and Fontayne, who grow up so close they ‘go for sisters’, but then lose track of each other for twenty years. They are reunited when Bernice is assigned as the parole officer for Fontayne, who is fresh out of prison and fighting heroin addiction. But Bernice has an even more threatening problem. With a budget well under a million dollars and four weeks to shoot, this will be a return to the guerilla style of filmmaking familiar to Sayles from his early 80’s films Return of the Secaucus Seven, Lianna and Brother from Another Planet. 

It's a film I have yet to see (it hasn't screened in NYC), although I fully expected it to continue to travel the international film festival circuit throughout the year, despite this pick-up. Reviews out of SXSW were mostly positive.

The film's first trailer debuted in January, and is embedded below if you missed it. You'll find the poster underneath, along with a few stills.

And here's the poster:

    The video is (now) private. I watched it here: http://youtu.be/JdK8Ah7rs2E. I'm a huge John Sayles fan and was excited to see this trailer.
