A boy and his two friends venture into the tough streets of East Oakland to retrieve a pair of stolen sneakers in the edgy drama Kicks. The gritty tale from Focus World, available now on Digital HD and On Demand, comes to Blu-ray™ and DVD on December 6, 2016 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The Blu-ray™ and DVD feature bonus content, including interviews with the cast as well as an official photo gallery that gives viewers an in-depth look inside the film’s unique style – which earned it the Best Cinematography award at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival – and a deeper understanding of the story.
Directed by Justin Tipping from a script by Tipping and Joshua Beirne-Golden, the film stars Jahking Guillory, Christopher Jordan Wallace (Notorious), Christopher Meyer (“Wayward Pines”), Kofi Siriboe (“Queen Sugar”), and Mahershala Ali (“House of Cards”).
15-year-old Brandon (Jahking Guillory) longs for a pair of the freshest sneakers that money can buy – to help him escape the reality of being poor and picked on by everyone. Working hard to finally get the Kicks shoes, he finds they have made him a target after they are promptly snatched by a local hood. Brandon and his two best friends embark on a dangerous and exciting journey where nothing is as simple as it seems in this unique and memorable coming-of-age story. The cast includes Mahershala Ali (Marvel’s Luke Cage).
The film will be available on Blu-ray™ and Digital HD with UltraViolet™ and DVD.
