Directed by Los Angeles-based filmmaker Sheldon Candis, LUV features Michael Rainey Jr. as Woody, an 11-year-old boy who gets a crash course in what it means to be a man when he spends a day with his Uncle Vincent (Common).
With his mother in rehab and his father out of the picture, Woody Watson lives with his grandmother (Lonette McKee) in Baltimore, Maryland, and longs to visit his mother in North Carolina at her drug treatment facility.
His charismatic Uncle Vincent has recently returned home to the inner-city streets of Baltimore after eight years in prison, determined to straighten out his life by starting his own business and providing for his family.
Unfortunately, Vincent soon finds himself caught up in the violent world he’s trying to escape – and Woody has to decide whether to follow his childhood hero – or become his own man. LUV features an impressive ensemble of African-American actors including Danny Glover, Charles S. Dutton, Dennis Haysbert, Meagan Good, and Michael Kenneth Williams.
