Independent filmmaker John Sayles returns to crime thriller territory with his upcoming film “Go For Sisters.” The film follows estranged friends Bernice (LisaGay Hamilton) and Fontayne (Yolanda) as they take their rekindled relationship as parole officer to recently-released subject through the shifty Mexican border underworld of trafficking and murder in order to find Bernice’s son. The two enlist the help of ex-LAPD detective Freddy Suarez in order to navigate through every seedy thread in the great crime tapestry of clues that stands between Bernice and her son. Sayles’ latest addition to a steadily expanding filmography from “Lone Star” to “Passion Fish” is depicted through the most recent trailer as a dually emphasized relationship and crime tale of an unlikely reunion spiraling through an even more unlikely turn of events.
“Go For Sisters” is set to be released theatrically November 8, 2013 in NY and on November 15 in L.A.
