Rodney Evans' sophomore effort, The Happy Sad, which made its World Premiere at Frameline San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival, as a Showcase Screening, last month, will open in theaters on Friday, August 16th at the IFC Center in NYC and at the Sundance Sunset Cinema in LA.

Rodney's 2nd feature follows two young couples in New York - one black and gay, one white and heterosexual - who find their lives intertwined as they create new relationship norms, explore sexual identity, and redefine monogamy.

The film's cast includes: LeRoy McClain (The History Boys), Sorel Carradine (The Good Doctor), Charlie Barnett (Gayby, Chicago Fire), Cameron Scoggins (Lovers), Maria Dizzia (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Louie), Sue Jean Kim (Bachelorette), Jamie Harrold (Erin Brockovich, The New Tenants - 2010 Academy Award Winner - Best Live Action short), and Michael Nathanson (Side Effects, Time Freak - 2012 Academy Award Nomination - Best Live Action short).

After its Frameline premiere, the film next screened at the Philadelphia QFest, as a Centerpiece Selection, and then, at Outfest - The Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival - both also this month.

Rodney has released a new clip from the film ahead of its release, and it's embedded below (poster underneath):
