One of my theater students, Western Poe is going to be in a movie this weekend! You may remember him as “Augustus Gloop” in Willy Wonka Jr. The title of the movie is Redemption Road and it will be playing at AMC Veterans, Muvico Starligt and Muvico Baywalk. It’s also playing in theaters in Atlanta, Nashville, Austin, Birmingham and Memphis. This is a movie you won’t want to miss. It is rated PG-13 and is not appropriate for young children.
Redemption Road is starring Academy Award Nominee Michael Clark Duncan, Golden Globe Nominee Tom Skerrit, Morgan Simpson and Luke Perry. It is a story of redemption with a powerful and surprissing ending set against the backdrop of Southern Blues and Country music.
