Cinedigm released a new trailer for the 70s coming-of-age indie drama, Tuscaloosa by veteran music video director Philip Harder. The film set in Alabama in 1972, stars Devon Bostick (Okja), Natalia Dyer (“Stranger Things”), Marchánt Davis (The Day Shall Come), Tate Donovan (Rocketman), and Def Jam hip hop artist YG (White Boy Rick). Tuscaloosa premiered at the Nashville Film Festival in October, and will be released in theaters, on digital, and on demand on March 13, 2020.
Tuscaloosa is based on the sweeping Southern novel by W. Glasgow Phillips. As racial tension simmers in the late summer heat, a forbidden love affair ignites between recent college grad Billy (Bostick) and free-spirited mental patient Virginia (Dyer). The relationship between Billy and his psychiatrist father (Donovan) unravels as Billy discovers the truth behind his father’s involvement in his mother’s mysterious disappearance and the local police’s racial violence against his childhood best friend (Davis) and a radical civil rights activist (YG).
