Jennifer Hudson - LULLABY

Terrence Howard and Jennifer Hudson are 2 members of an ensemble cast dramedy titled "Lullaby," joined by Garrett Hedlund, Amy Adams, Richard Jenkins, and Jessica Brown Findlay in a project from Radiant Films, directed by acclaimed fine artist Andrew Levitas - his feature film directorial debut with Lullaby, directing from his own script.

What's "Lullaby" about?

Lullaby explores the power of life and the reconnections between loved ones. Estranged from his family, Hedlund's character receives word that his father has chosen to take himself off of life support. What follows is an unexpected journey of love, laughter and forgiveness.

Hudson plays a no-nonsense nurse while Howard is a caring doctor who is handling the father’s case.

Principal photography too place in New York City in 2012.

Director Levitas' paintings have been exhibited worldwide, including in the prestigious Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts 2008 exhibition in the Louvre. He's also an acclaimed photographer.

The movie will be in theaters and available on video on demand, this Friday.
