This film was originally profiled on S&A back in November. Nearly a year later and with a name change, Redemption Road finally hits theaters today.
Directed by Mario Van Peebles, a description for the film states..."two seemingly different men [who] embark on a music-steeped journey through the American South, learning along the way that life isn’t about where you end up - it’s how you get there that matters. Somewhere along the 900 miles between Austin, TX and Huntsville, AL the two men become unlikely friends. However, every road has an end. In Huntsville, sad truths come to light, with heartbreak and violence lingering in their wake, ultimately leaving both men changed forever."
The film stars Michael Clarke Duncan, Morgan Simpson, Kiele Sanchez, Tom Skerritt, Luke Perry and Taryn Manning.
