"You got an army of people who love you at your back." Gravitas has debuted an official trailer for an indie film titled After Class, which initially premiered under the title Safe Spaces at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. It's getting the usual VOD release in December, if anyone is curious anyway. Justin Long plays an NYU professor who gets in trouble after trying to create "safe spaces" for his students. So he skips town and spends a week re-connecting with his family and an ill grandmother while attempting to defend his reputation. The cast includes Fran Drescher, Richard Schiff, Camrus Johnson, Kate Berlant, Becky Ann Baker, Tyler Wladis, Lynn Cohen, Samrat Chakrabarti, Dana Eskelson, and Michael Godere. Well this seems rather charming and uplifting in a warm way, it might actually be worth a watch.
