Iconic actor Edward James Olmos has had a rich career in film and theater and is now throwing his support behind both by supporting the small independent film Water & Power, which will be screening in select theaters across the country.
The film, written and directed by Richard Montoya, is based upon Montoya's stage play, which is how Olmos was exposed to the story.
"The first time I saw this, it was a play... It opened in the Mark Taper Forum, and it opened to rave reviews and standing ovations. It was an incredibly well-written piece of work," said Olmos, 67. "The writing just broke through."
According to Olmos, the material worked even better in Montoya's film adaptation. "If it worked well on stage, it really worked well on film."
The story follows two brothers, nicknamed Water and Power by their fathers, who lives take very different paths. One becomes a Los Angeles cop, which the other becomes a city politician. However, one fateful night, everything changes for both of them.
Water & Power will be in limited release in select theaters May 2.
