New in theaters this weekend…
Well, it’s not really new, but for those of you in Denver, it will be. AFFRM continues its Restless City national push, opening the film in Denver today, June 1, at Denver Film Center/Colfax, for a 1-week run.
So if you’re in that city, and you’re at all interested in seeing Andrew Dosunmu’s enchanting acclaimed feature film debut, here’s your chance! Remember, you’ve got only 1 week and then, poof, just like that, it’s gone!
Opening wider today (188 screens) is Battlefield America, from the team that brought you You Got Served. Marques Houston, Mekia Cox, Christopher Michael Jones, and Lynn Whitfield star.
The film’s synopsis reads:
Battlefield America takes a steady look at the underbelly of the youth battle dance culture in Long Beach, California. Sean Lewis, a young, charismatic, successful businessman finds himself in the mix with a bunch of disheveled misfits Bad Boys, who have virtually no dance talent. Realizing his dilemma, Sean brings aboard a professional dance instructor to ease his responsibilities to these kids. Meanwhile, he finds himself falling for Sara, who runs the community center where the kids hangout and practice their moves. With Sean motivating them, The Bad Boys find the confidence to be contenders…
“Where Kids Rule!” is the film’s tagline, so this one’s just for them I suppose. So take the kids.
