Exploring the mind of a center city man in search of mental equilibrium, Knucklehead makes its DVD Debut on December 6, 2016 from RLJ Entertainment. Starring Emmy award-winning actress, Alfre Woodard, and Gbenga Akinnagbe, who also produced the project, the film follows a neighborhood eccentric who is convinced that prescription drugs can cure his mental disability. As a result, he ventures out of Brooklyn’s housing projects to escape his controlling mother and to find the one doctor who he believes can treat him. The film made its world premiere as part of the BAMcinématek series New Voices in Black Cinema in March 2015 and was also the closing film in the Minneapolis/St. Paul International film festival in late April 2015, where it won the top award for fiction features, the “MN Made Narrative Feature.” The film also received multiple nominations at the 2015 American Black Film Festival. Also starring Amari Cheatom, Knucklehead made its exclusive nation-wide premiere in October 2016 on Urban Movie Channel (UMC), the first urban-focused streaming service in North America showcasing quality and exclusive content designed for African American and urban audiences.
When his brother (Amari Cheatom, Django Unchained) is shot, mentally disabled Langston Bellows (Gbenga Akinnagbe) is left without a protector in Brooklyn’s housing projects. Now under the control of his abusive mother (Alfre Woodard), Langston must take his future into his own hands. He sets out to find the one doctor he believes can cure him, a celebrity magazine columnist who touts questionable prescription drug cocktails. If Langston can become “mentally excellent,” it will mean moving into an apartment of his own with his girlfriend, who may herself be a creation of his wishful thinking. Plunged into the unscrupulous world of pharmaceutical marketing, the search for his mysterious doctor and hero leads to some surprising discoveries. Nonetheless, Langston strives for independence from his prior life, from his mother, and from his fractured mind.
