Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 30 days, you’ve heard all about “LUV”, a new movie starring Common and 12-year-old newcomer Michael Rainey Jr.! Well a few weeks back Partychaser reached out to GL to cover the red carpet while ThaAfterparty Radio produced the live Q&A session following the private screening here in Dallas! I’m an avid movie watcher so I grabbed my new BFF Jalenski to hold the camera and my girl Mecca for the ride and we were off!
The independent film, which also stars Danny Glover, Charles S. Dutton, and Meagan Good, centers around young Woody (Michael) who misses school for an eventful day with his Uncle Vincent (Common) who was just released from jail. During the span of 24 hours, he is taught valuable lessons in manhood on the streets of Baltimore as his Uncle Vincent attempts to turn his life around and start a new business. Instead, his past catches up to him and they run into circumstances that involve guns, drugs, theft and bloodshed. The film sheds a light on inmates who come out of the prison system and want to do right but are not giving a fair chance so they are thrust back into a life of crime.
