Starring Wes Reid, Alexis Katherine, Michael Wingfield, Fredro Williams
In this coming-of-age drama set against life in a racially-divided Southern town?where urban meets rural, and hip hop meets honky tonk?four twenty-something friends who refuse to grow up deal with violence, discrimination and exploitation on a daily basis. And when the going gets tough, they get tougher. Fate throws some unexpected curve balls as some struggle with the trappings of small-town existence, while others dream of escape?but each will reach a turning point at this crossroads of post-high school life. A gripping indie written and directed by Virginia native Jonathan Straiton, BIG FISH IN MIDDLESEX stars a cast of hometown locals who deliver powerful performances across the board.
