Official Trailer for Romantic Drama 'Angelfish' Starring Princess Nokia
"I gotta take care of my family…" Dark Star Pictures has debuted an official trailer for an indie romantic drama titled Angelfish, which is headed straight-to-VOD in November. Set in The Bronx in 1993, the film is about a young couple from two completely different worlds, who fall in love over a summer that reshapes their lives and the way they view the future ahead of them. Marking the feature directorial debut of Peter Andrew Lee, who also wrote the screenplay. Angelfish stars Destiny Frasqueri, also known by her rapper name "Princess Nokia", plus Jimi Stanton (seen in November Criminals, Netflix's "The Punisher") as Brendan, her love interest. Also with Stanley Simons, Erin Davie, Rosie Berrido, Sandy Tejada, and Claire McClanahan. This looks like it has the rawness and realness of Like, Crazy, but set in NYC instead.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Peter Andrew Lee's Angelfish, from Dark Star's YouTube:
Angelfish tells the story of Brendan (Jimi Stanton), a high school drop out with a complicated family living in the Bronx who meets Eva (Princess Nokia), a young woman who’s on her own journey of self-discovery.
