Calloused Hands, which features an award winning performance from Wire star Andre Royo, will host its theatrical release on Friday, November 14, 2014 at the Laemmle Theatre in Pasadena, followed by screenings in Miami and New York.
The hard-hitting drama, based on the true story of its writer/director Jesse Quinones, tells the narrative of Josh, a 12-year-old mixed race boy growing up in Miami who shows promise as a baseball player. Josh is neglected by his mother, who is abused by her boyfriend Byrd. Josh manages to forge his own path when his estranged grandfather insists he studies for his Bar Mitzvah.
In spite of its micro budget, Calloused Hands premiered at the Miami International Film Festival and went on to screen in over 15 film festivals winning numerous awards. The heart-warming film was later picked up by New York based distributor Kino Lorber.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, November 11, 2014. For additional information on screenings and ticket prices, please visit.www.laemmle.com
