All About Us
Celebrated by audiences and critics nationwide, Christine Swanson’s “All About Us” is an inspirational and refreshing romantic drama inspired by a true story. When a filmmaking couple hits a brick wall in Hollywood, they set off to Mississippi to find Morgan Freeman and persuade him to star in their next film. When life gets in their way, the couple soon discovers what matters to them most. Beautifully told with stellar performances by Boris Kodjoe (Tyler Perry’s Medea’s Family Reunion), Academy Award Nominee Rudy Dee and a special appearance by Morgan Freeman, set against the backdrop of Hollywood and the Mississippi Delta, “All About Us” is an entertaining and heartfelt story that provides insightful commentary on the familial rifts that ambition often creates.
This film paints a realistic picture of just how hard it is for independent filmmakers to navigate the Hollywood system of film distribution. It can take years for a fully produced film to reach an audience. And, when you consider that many Indie filmmakers spend their life savings following their dreams, you can understand the resulting stress.
“All About Us” is the tale of a husband and wife who do just that. The struggles they encounter ultimately bring them closer together and reinstall the importance of faith, family and going back to our roots for answers.
