Screen Media has acquired all U.S. rights for Lexi Alexander's "Lifted," a film about a young boy from Alabama who enters a singing competition in order to support his family, particularly his mother, as they deal with the changes in the household provoked by his father's deployment to Afghanistan. The film stars Dash Mihok, Nicki Aycox, and Uriah Shelton, with cameos by Trace Adkins and Ruben Studdard. The film has been praised by veterans' groups and political actors and intellectuals like Andrew Breitbart and Eckhart Tolle for carefully telling a politically charged story about the War on Terror.
