We have written about writer and director Jono Oliver’s remarkable and moving feature film Home, several times on S & A (including a rave review from me HERE), and now you may finally get a chance to see it for yourself.

After numerous film festival screenings across the country, including most recently the Black Harvest Film Festival in in Chicago this past August, and winning several best feature awards, Home is set to open in theaters in New York and Los Angeles on November 22nd.

The film, which was recently picked up for distribution by eOne, will be opening at the Arena Theatre in Los Angeles for a limited one-week run, as well as in New York at the Quad Cinema on the same day.

The film tells the story about a man, extraordinarily played by Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Wire, Savages), who suffers from mental illness, who tries to rebuild his life and reconnect with his estranged son by accomplishing one primary goal: moving out of the group home where he resides and into an apartment of his own.

But it's a lot more than that.

As Oliver says about his film, it’s “an ubiquitous story about hope, redemption and moving forward in life did on some level I think all of us can relate to. It is a drama that involves a man who is, at times, against all odds. Yet…while the stakes are high and his chances of success might seem bleak, his determination, and interactions - with a colorful assortment of characters - give this world a sense of humor, humanity, and - despite the serious subject matter - make the story fun."

 In other words it’s a genuine feel good movie that you really can’t afford to miss.
