GO FOR SISTERS Releases Trailer and Poster, In Theaters This November
Check out the new official trailer and movie poster from the film GO FOR SISTERS, written and directed by two-time Oscar nominee John Sayles.
Starring Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica, Blade Runner) and LisaGay Hamilton (True Crime, The Practice), this crime drama takes place in the dim underbelly of Tijuana, returning Sayles to his border roots.
Bernice (LisaGay Hamilton) and Fontayne (Yolonda Ross) grew so close people said they could "go for sisters", but time sent them down different paths. Twenty years later, those paths cross: Fontayne is a recovering addict fresh out of jail, and Bernice is her new parole officer.
When Bernice's son Rodney goes missing on the Mexican border, his shady associates all in hiding or brutally murdered, Bernice realizes she needs someone with the connections to navigate Rodney's world without involving the police... and turns to her old friend. The pair enlist the services of disgraced ex-LAPD detective Freddy Suárez (Edward James Olmos) and plunge into the dim underbelly of Tijuana, forced to unravel a complex web of human traffickers, smugglers, and corrupt cops before Rodney meets the same fate as his partners. As much a story of relationships as a story of crime, GO FOR SISTERS is a welcome return to the border for master filmmaker and 2-time Oscar nominee John Sayles ("Lone Star," "Passion Fish").
