A great film
I worked with Harry Davis on a shoot in NYC and he's a funny character. Anyway, he showed me a cut of MVP that screened at Sundance and I was floored. I'm shocked that this hasn't been distributed yet. What I saw were actually just scenes and not a linear piece, but the acting was great as was the writing and directing. This film is a great legal thriller. Not BS Hollywood glam like John Grisham stuff, but REAL inner city courtroom drama and crime. I'm telling you, this film is worthy of winning awards. The only reason I can think that this hasn't gotten out yet, is the stars aren't big and let's be real, black films are a hard sell, unless it's got hip hop stars or Will Smith. Look out for MVP!
