A film we first profiled back in January of this year, the action drama The Kill Hole picked up critical acclaim when it premiered in January at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival; last month, the film won the best feature narrative award at the New Jersey International Film Festival.

Written and directed by Mischa Webley, the film about a troubled and guilt-ridden Iraqi war vet will screen next at Chicago's Black Harvest Film Festival (August 3-30) and at the Montreal International Black Film Festival, (September 20-30). The film is also set for an official screening on August 17th at the Columbia Gorge International Film Festival in Washington.

The Kill Hole, shot in Oregon, stars Chadwick Boseman, who is portraying the iconic baseball player Jackie Robinson in Brian Helgeland's upcoming biopic titled 42, out in April of next year.

Boseman is joined by Tory Kittles, Billy Zane, Peter Greene, Dennis Atkins and others.

Here's the full synopsis:

Lt. Samuel Drake (Chadwick Boseman) is a troubled vet plagued by his actions while deployed in Iraq. Recently discharged, he is trying to piece his life back together while he works as a cab driver and lives in a rundown motel room. He also attends counseling sessions led by Marshall (Billy Zane) to help cope with the horrors of his past. While on this path to a fresh start, Drake's fragile new life is shattered when two executives (Peter Greene and Ted Rooney), who represent a private military contractor, present a new mission, one with no option to refuse; track down and kill Sgt. Devin Carter (Tory Kittles), an AWOL Marine Corps. sniper who knows the truth about Drake's past and who himself is on a mission to target and kill members of the mercenary firm. A gripping, lyrical meditation on war and the scars it leaves on those who fight, The Kill Hole is a story of one man who is forced to face his violent past.

I'm curious about this film and highly anticipating it. I'm especially looking forward to Mr. Boseman's performance.
