It’s been over a year since we caught director Keith Miller’s intimate and authentic “Five Star” at the Tribeca Film Festival where it grabbed our attention (check out our review), and after spending much of last year doing the festival rounds, the picture is now headed to cinemas and it’s one you should make a little time for.
Starring James ‘Primo’ Grant and John Diaz, the story follows John, who gets taken under the wing of Bloods member Primo, after his father is killed on the streets. John’s father looked out for Primo, and Primo decides to do the same for John, offering him an easy entrance into gang brotherhood if he wants it. But John is uncertain, and even Primo considers a life where he focus on being a husband and father first.
Picking up Best Editing at Tribeca, along with honors from TallGrass International Film Festival and RiverRun International Film Festival, “Five Star” opens in limited release on July 24th and hits VOD on August 4th. Watch the trailer below.
