Last Fall

Announced at the 2012 American Black Film Festival, where the film screened, Matthew Cherry's family drama, The Last Fall, was acquired by Image Entertainment (which recently joined Bob Johnson's RLJ family) in a deal that included all non-theatrical North American rights (DVD, VOD, Digital Download, etc).

The film, which premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival, stars Lance Gross and Nicole Beharie, now has official theatrical playdates courtesy of the filmmaker, who opted for a self-distributed theatrical run - a run that begins on Friday, October 26thin Los Angeles, at the Rave Theaters in the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw plaza

Once again, its synopsis reads:

After several years in the playing professional football, Kyle Bishop is released from his fourth team in three years and returns to his home town, broke and at a complete loss about what he will do for a living. After an initially cold reception, Kyle reconnects with Faith Davis, his old high school sweetheart. Ready to leave football far in the past, Kyle gets a job at a local gym and starts planning a new life with Faith and her young son, Von. However, when Kyle unexpectedly gets a lucrative offer from another professional team, and the father of Faith's son, Rell, tries to win his way back in her life, he is torn about what path to take.

Vanessa Bell CallowayHarry LennixDarrin Henson and Keith David round out the cast of the film, which was produced by Gross, along with Nikki Love and Scott HebertEllis Hobbs, Monique Hobbs and Monica A. Young.

As usual, if the film does very well when it opens in LA, expect a gradual expansion into other cities. Audiences can also set up and demand screenings of The Last Fall in their respective cities by using http://www.tugg.com.

Matthew will return soon with a new entry to his S&A filmmaker diary series (it's been awhile, so some of you new readers may not be familiar, but you can click HERE to start from the very beginning and play catch up). In this new entry, he'll discuss film deliverables; or as he bluntly put it, things that he wished someone had explained to him when he was making the film. So expect something educational that all you up-and-coming filmmakers will be able to learn something from.

A new clip from the film has been released (a scene featuring both Gross and Beharie), and it's embedded for you to watch below:
