Later this month, the film Gimme The Loot—which has already been an Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival and a winner at the SXSW Film Festival—will officially hit theaters, and it looks like one not to miss. Below, check out the synopsis, from the movie’s website, and peep the trailer above.
Malcolm and Sofia, two determined teens from the Bronx, are the ultimate graffiti-writers. When a rival gang buffs their latest masterpiece, they must hatch a plan to get revenge by tagging an iconic NYC landmark, but they need to raise $500 to pull off their spectacular scheme.
Over the course of two whirlwind, sun-soaked summer days, Malcolm and Sofia travel on an epic urban adventure involving black market spray cans, illicit bodegas, stolen sneakers, a high wire heist, and a beautiful, rich girl’s necklace that is literally their key to becoming the biggest writers in the City.
The film hits theaters on March 22, but there’s also a special screening on March 13 in NYC.
