Event Information

OUR SONG (2010)

Over the course of a sweltering summer in Crown Heights, best friends Lanisha (Kerry Washington, in her film debut), Maria (Melissa Martinez), and Joycelyn (Anna Simpson) navigate a host of teenage anxieties—the closing of their high school, unplanned pregnancy, and tumultuous family lives—all between rehearsals with the legendary Jackie Robinson Steppers Marching Band (who punctuates the movie with rousing performances). Jim McKay’s (En el Séptimo Día) refreshingly honest, nuanced depiction of female friendship captures the growing pains of adolescence, as well as the sights, sounds, and feelings of Brooklyn summer. An IFC Films release.
