This was originally scheduled to open in the USA this weekend, November 9; but, as I just found out, it didn't. So I did a little digging, and eventually landed on the film's Facebook page to see a November 7th announcement that its release date is now set for January 18th, 2013.

Sheldon Candis' feature film debut, LUV, which made its debut at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in the dramatic competition section, stars Common and Michael Rainey Jr.

Indomina Entertainment acquired the film after its Sundance premiere, with a fall release expected.

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:

    Aww man, my dream older husband Haysbert is playing a shady character in this. The trailer looks good, though.
