GO FOR SISTERS
Sat, Jan 11 @ 2PM Milbank Chapel Teachers College
Two time Academy Award nominee John Sayles (Lone Star) returns to the border in this new thriller starring LisaGay Hamilton and Edward James Olmos.
Bernice (LisaGay Hamilton) and Fontayne (Yolonda Ross) grew up the closest of friends, but took very different paths in life. Twenty years later, those paths cross: Fontayne is a recovering addict fresh out of jail, and Bernice is her new parole officer. But when Bernice's son Rodney goes missing on the Mexican border, his shady partners in hiding or brutally murdered, she needs someone who can navigate Rodney's world without involving the police and turns to Fontayne. The pair enlist the services of Freddy Suárez (Edward James Olmos), a disgraced ex-LAPD detective, and plunge into the underbelly of Tijuana, quickly finding themselves in a potentially deadly cat-and-mouse game with a ruthless gang of human traffickers.
Dir. by John Sayles, 2013, USA, 122 mins, thriller in English
