Sheldon Candis' feature film debut, LUV, which stars Common and Michael Rainey Jr, will make its debut at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, in the dramatic competition section, and it's on my short list of films to see while I'm there, premiering at the mammoth Eccles Theater on Monday the 23rd.

It'll screen a total of 5 times during the 10-day festival, and according to Sundance, all 5 shows are going to be packed; currently, if you want to purchase tickets for any of the 5 screenings, you'll find yourself being added to a wait list. 

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, and Charles S. Dutton also co-star.

Below is a brand new clip from the film (courtesy of MTV) featuring Common, Haysbert, Glover and Rainey Jr, smashing some crabs at the dinner table (and underneath, check out some additional still photos):

    It's not an accident that the majority of that clip was Danny Glover & Dennis Haysbert.

    Common sounds like the same character in every film he's in. He's a few films in now, so there's no excuse for this anymore.

    Yea..ah, Common is a Rapper...maybe if they hired an Actor for the role, I would watch it.
