Zazie Beetz Deals With an Ex-Boyfriend Being Released From Prison in 'Sollers Point' Trailer (Exclusive)
By John Boone
"You're not too old, you can start again. You can pull yourself out of it, which I think you're on the way to doing, and try to figure out some plan for your life -- or you can go right back into it."
So Keith (played by American Honey actor McCaul Lombardi) is told by his grandmother in the exclusive trailer for the drama, Sollers Point. Unfortunately, the 24-year-old, fresh off a stint in prison, doesn't receive the same kind of support from his dad (Jim Belushi), who scoffs, "What do you want me to do? Take it easy on you? Hold your hand?"
Sollers Point, directed by Matthew Porterfield, sees Keith struggle to re-acclimate to society, dealing with unemployment and "family" from inside as he tries to stay out of trouble. At one point, his ex (Atlanta and Deadpool 2's Zazie Beetz) threatens to press charges after he breaks into her home. "I feel like I'm going to have to get a restraining order!" she exclaims, to which Belushi's character replies, "Don't do that, please. Think about his position here. What are the cops going to do, really?"
Here is the movie's official synopsis:
"SOLLERS POINT tells the story of Keith (Lombardi), a twenty-four-year-old newly released from prison and living with his father (Belushi) under house arrest in Baltimore. Keith is struggling to reestablish himself, and break free of the bonds forged behind bars, within a community scarred by unemployment, neglect, and deeply entrenched segregation. His intentions are in the right place and he possesses an aggressive desire to get back on his feet, but as he taps into all his familiar resources, he finds that he may be reverting to his old ways."
