Life, love, soul

It premiered at the Urbanworld Film Festival last fall (when we first profiled it), and will have its theatrical premiere on April 13th in select markets - specifically, Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, D.C., Los Angeles, New Jersey and New York. And I've now got the exact theaters in those cities the film will play in.

But first, a quick recap...

Titled Life, Love, Soul, and directed by Noel Calloway, here's recap... its full synopsis follows:

Roosevelt Jackson is living his version of the American dream. He's 17, handsome and super talented, what else could he ask for? His mother, beautiful attorney Kimberly Jackson raises Roosevelt and younger brother Clinton in the affluent Park Slope section of Brooklyn, NY. Its early in Roosevelt's senior year of High School; his biggest concern is whether to go to Syracuse University or UCLA. While heading to the mall on a picturesque fall day with his mother and brother, Roosevelt’s world is shattered. An out of control SUV smashes into the Jackson family car, instantly killing Kimberly and Clinton leaving Roosevelt alone in a world devoid of the love and support he has cherished his whole life. Orphaned and heartbroken Roosevelt honors his mother's wish and moves in with his estranged father, disgruntled construction worker Earl Grant. Earl is ill equipped to raise the teenage son he never knew, let alone nurture him through an unspeakable tragedy. The relationship is instantly volatile as the mutual resentment between father and son leads to explosive confrontations. Jennifer, Earl's wife, tries unsuccessfully to bridge the gap between father and son. It isn’t until Roosevelt meets Kyna Tate, a beautiful student at his new school, that Roosevelt begins to live again. Infused with newfound happiness Roosevelt opens up to the possibility of establishing a traditional father-son relationship with Earl. As he begins to piece his life together Roosevelt is blindsided by another life altering circumstance.

Starring in the 108-minute film are: : Jamie Hector, Chad L. Coleman, Tamara FayTerri J. Vaughn, Tami Roman, Mia Michele, Allen J. West, Valerie Simpson, Jian Pierre Rice & Robbie Tate-Brickle.
