Trailer Bulletin: Freedomland

by | October 20, 2005 | Comments

From director Joe Roth and screenwriter Richard Price comes "Freedomland," an apparently racially-charged kidnapping thriller that stars Samuel L. Jackson, Julianne Moore, and Edie Falco. Check out the brand-new trailer right here.

"Based on Richard Price’s bestselling novel, which opens as a bruised and bloodied white woman named Brenda Martin stumbles into a Dempsey, New Jersey, emergency room, claiming that a black man stole her car with her four-year-old son in the backseat. Veteran detective Lorenzo Council is assigned to investigate the case, and despite reservations about Brenda’s story, he launches an all-out search for the abducted boy. Jesse Haus, an ambitious young reporter for the local newspaper, also suspects that Brenda is hiding something, and she befriends the grief-stricken mother in an attempt to break the biggest story of her career. But as the search for the alleged carjacker intensifies, smoldering racial tensions between the predominantly black city of Dempsey and its mostly white neighbor, Gannon, threaten to explode."

Movie fans will know Richard Price as the screenwriter of "Kiss of Death," "Clockers," and "Ransom." Joe Roth is best known as a prolific producer, but ocassionally steps behind the cameras to direct movies called "America’s Sweethearts," "Christmas with the Kranks," and "Revenge of the Nerds 2: Nerds in Paradise."

Co-starring Ron Eldard, Anthony Mackie, Aunjanue Ellis, and William Forsythe, "Freedomland" opens in limited release on Dec. 23rd, and wide on Jan. 13th.
