Now here's an argument for never skipping school if there ever was one.
Michael Rainey Jr. and Common star in "LUV," an intense-looking coming-of-age crime drama about an 11-year-old boy and the shady uncle he idolizes. A seemingly innocent day of playing hooky turns into something much more sinister when the kid discovers just exactly what his hero does for a living.
Despite the fact that the trailer reveals the second-act turn of events (someone gets shot) and quite a generous amount of third-act follow-up (things just get worse from there), "LUV," which debuted earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, looks like quite a powerful piece of work. Both Rainey Jr. and Common look to deliver top-notch work, and you can't beat a supporting cast that includes Danny Glover, Dennis Haysbert, Michael Kenneth Williams, Meagan Good and Lonette McKee.
Check out the trailer below or in HD at iTunes Movie Trailers. "LUV" opens Nov. 9.
