Annie Silverstein’s Cannes drama BULL has been postponed and will now be released on VOD/digital on May 1, 2020. The film starring Rob Morgan (JUST MERCY, MUDBOUND, Stranger Things), Yolonda Ross (WHITNEY, The Chi) and Amber Havard screened in the Un Certain Regard section of 2019 Cannes Film Festival, earning rave reviews.
BULL centers around 14-year-old Kris (Amber Havard), who, after trashing her neighbor’s house in a fit of youthful defiance, seems destined to follow in her mother’s footsteps to the state penitentiary. To make amends, she is forced to help Abe Turner (Rob Morgan), an ex-bull rider scraping by on the Texas rodeo circuit, with errands at home and at his work. While traveling with Abe, she discovers a passion for bull riding. Yet, as Kris sets out to learn the dangerous sport, bad influences lure her back into delinquent ways. Meanwhile, Abe struggles with the aches and pains of growing older and aging out of the only life he has ever known. Together, Kris and Abe forge an unexpected connection, helping each other see new possibilities and hope for the future before it’s too late.
