Charlie Poe, Florida ’94 awaits the release of Redemption Road
Charlie Poe, Florida ’94, has been working as executive producer on a movie for two years that will be released in select theaters on August 26, 2011. The film is called Redemption Road, directed by Mario Van Peebles.
In Mario Van Peeble’s new film “Redemption Road“, two seemingly different men (Academy Award Nominee Michael Clarke Duncan, Morgan Simpson) embark on a music-steeped journey through the American South, learning along the way that life isn’t about where you end up – it’s how you get there that matters.
Somewhere along the 900 miles between Austin, TX and Huntsville, AL the two men become unlikely friends. However, every road has an end. In Huntsville, sad truths come to light, with heartbreak and violence lingering in their wake, ultimately leaving both men changed forever.
Redemption Road will be playing the weekend of August 26, 2011 in multiplex theaters in Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, Atlanta, Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans, Birmingham, Austin, and Little Rock.
