GO FOR SISTERS Set for 8/19 DVD Release
Freestyle Digital Media has set August 19th, 2014 for the DVD release of the thrilling feature film Go For Sisters from two-time Academy Award-nominee John Sayles (LONE STAR, MATEWAN, EIGHT MEN OUT). Starring LisaGay Hamilton, Yolonda Ross and Edward James Olmos, Go For Sisters was written, edited, and directed by Sayles, and was produced by Edward James Olmos, Alejandro Springall, and Peter Bobrow.
GO FOR SISTERS tells the story of Bernice (Hamilton) and Fontayne (Ross), who 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 are 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 (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.
The distribution deal for the film was originally brokered by Susan Jackson for FDM, and by Dylan Marchetti from Variance Films, a division of Amplify, on behalf of the filmmakers.
"Freestyle Digital Media is happy to bring this powerful film to DVD," said Jackson. "John Sayles adds two more strong women to his long list of characters."
