Former Chicagoan and Black Harvest Film Festival veteran Tyton (TOOT’S AND BLOW’S, THE PARTY LINE) returns with a grown-up romantic drama featuring a likeable but immature protagonist. Transplanted from Chicago to Atlanta, Preach (Crawford) is a talented poet whose inability to get over his fondness for weed or his grief for his late girlfriend Gail inhibits both his writing career and his current relationship with the mature and challenging Arika (Clay). The arrival of a Chicago friend carrying a dangerous secret brings Preach to a crossroads where he must find--or lose--his destiny. As in his previous films, Tyton’s easygoing, actor-friendly approach pays off richly in character authenticity and development. (Gene Siskel Film Center)
