Emmy and Academy Award winner Terry Sanders’ Liza, Liza, Skies Are Grey stars Mikey Madison (Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood), Madeline Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle), and Sean H. Scully (The Last Champion). Set in 1960s California, this romantic story combines elements of Romeo & Juliet and The Odyssey, that captures the innocence and overwhelming emotion that is first love.
After deciding they would be each other’s “first,” Liza (Mikey Madison) and Brett (Sean H. Scully), a young couple trying to figure out love and growing up in the summer of ’66, take a motorcycle road trip up the California coast. With one last chance to live like there’s no tomorrow in a world filled with war, fear, and change, fate will offer them more than they ever expected to find on the warm and winding highway.
Inspired by memories of his early life, Sanders shot the film like a documentary, as if going back in time to follow the kids. Sanders hopes young people will be able to identify with his characters Liza and Brett and the poignant memories in parents and grandparents.
