Check out the official trailer of O.G., the upcoming drama movie directed by Madeleine Sackler and starring Jeffrey Wright, Theothus Carter, William Fichtner, Boyd Holbrook, Mare Winningham, Bahni Turpin, Yul Vazquez, David Patrick Kelly, and Ato Essandoh:
“O.G. follows Louis (Jeffrey Wright), once the head of a prominent prison gang, in the final weeks of his 24-year sentence. His impending release is upended when he takes new arrival Beecher (Theothus Carter), who is being courted by gang leadership, under his wing. Coming to grips with the indelibility of his crime and the challenge of reentering society, Louis finds his freedom hanging in the balance as he struggles to save Beecher.
Groundbreaking in being filmed at an actual prison, with many of the men incarcerated there cast in acting roles, O.G. takes an intimate and unflinching look at the journey of one man at the precipice of freedom.”
This prison system needs to be overhauled, nothing good comes from it… just more pain..
The release date of the movie O.G. is set to February 23, 2019 (on HBO).
Stay tuned for updates.
