Watch: Adam Leon's New York Indie 'Gimme the Loot' Release Trailer
"Do what you gotta do to make that happen!" Sundance Selects has unveiled an official release trailer for Adam Leon's award-winning feature film Gimme the Loot, taking place in and around New York City and Brooklyn/Queens. The indie drama stars newcomers Ty Hickson as Malcolm and Tashiana Washington as Sofia, two young "writers" from New York, in what is essentially a modern teenage love story. I saw this film while I was at the Cannes Film Festival last year and did not enjoy it, unfortunately. It does have praise and may connect with some viewers in the right way. If you're interested, give the new trailer a look below.
