Sheldon Candis' feature film debut, LUV, which stars Common and Michael Rainey Jr, will open in USA theaters on November 9, courtesy of Indomina Entertainment.

The film made its debut at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, in the dramatic competition section.

It continued to tour the film festival circuit, with screenings at the Champs-Elysées Film Festival (both in Paris and LA), American Black Film Festival, and the Los Angeles Film Festival.

It was also picked up by BET for its eventual TV debut.

The film's official synopsis reads:

An orphaned 11-year-old boy is forced to face the unpleasant truth about his beloved uncle during one harrowing day in the streets of Baltimore. 

Dennis Haysbert, Danny Glover, Michael K. Williams, Meagan Good and Charles S. Dutton also co-star.

Jasmin saw the film at the Los Angeles Film Festival in June and reviewed it HERE.

Below is the first full trailer for the film, and underneath, the full poster:
