Delia’s Gone, starring Stephen James and Marisa Tomei, has dropped its first trailer.
The film is based on the short story Caged Bird Sing by Michael Hamblin. It premiered recently at the Micheaux Film Festival.
Here is the official synopsis of the film:
Delia’s Gone follows Louis (Stephen James), who has an intellectual disability and lives with his older sister Delia (Genelle Williams) amidst her struggles with addiction following their father’s death. After a night of drinking, Delia’s truck is found abandoned at a bar, drawing suspicion from the local sheriff (Marisa Tomei) who soon discovers she’s been killed. All evidence points to Louis who, pressured by police, pleads guilty and is sentenced to five years in prison for his sister’s murder. Upon release, Louis is confined to a home care facility where he is visited by Stacker (Travis Fimmel), one of the men to last see Delia alive, who implies that there is more to her death than meets the eye. Armed with this new information, Louis escapes the facility on a personal mission to find who is responsible for Delia’s mysterious death.
The film also stars Travis Fimmel, Paul Walter Hauser, and Genelle Williams.
It is directed and written by Robert Budreau.
Delia’s Gone hits theaters on Aug. 19.
