Here’s your first official look at Indie film maestro John Sayles’ Go For Sisters, which Yolonda Ross, LisaGay Hamilton, Isaiah Washington, Edward James Olmos, and Hector Elizondo are all starring in.
A description of the project from Sayles’ website read:
The plot concerns two friends, Bernice and Fontayne, who grow up so close they ‘go for sisters’, but then lose track of each other for twenty years. They are reunited when Bernice is assigned as the parole officer for Fontayne, who is fresh out of prison and fighting heroin addiction. But Bernice has an even more threatening problem. With a budget well under a million dollars and four weeks to shoot, this will be a return to the guerilla style of filmmaking familiar to Sayles from his early 80’s films Return of the Secaucus Seven, Lianna and Brother from Another Planet. Production will begin in mid-July.
As I said before, with this cast, Go For Sisters should be a well-acted drama (as Sayles films tend to be).
We’ll continue to watch the progress of the project.
