Miss Juneteenth Trailer

"I need you to focus on your studies." Vertical Entertainment has released an official trailer for the indie dramedy Miss Juneteenth, which initially premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It also won the Lone Star Award at the SXSW Film Festival in the spring as the Best Texan Film. Marking the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Channing Godfrey Peoples, Miss Juneteenth is about a mother and a daughter in a small town in Texas. Nicole Beharie plays Turquoise, a former beauty queen and now single mom, who tries to prepare her rebellious teenage daughter for the same pageant she won. Also stars Alexis Chikaeze, Kendrick Sampson, Lori Hayes, & Liz Mikel. Looks like an authentic story about dreams.
