    “...it SHINES BRIGHT like any FRESH NEW AMERICAN LOVE STORY should.”—Film School Rejects

    ONLY LOVE CAN SAVE YOU



     

     

    Starring Ricardo Chavira and Emmy nominee E.J. Bonilla this award-winning, critically acclaimed film comes to DVD on October 5th

    CHATSWORTH, CA.Sometimes only love can save you. On October 5, Image Entertainment presents Don't Let Me Drown, a story of two Brooklyn teenagers finding comfort in each other while dealing with the aftermath of the World Trade Center tragedy. Directed by Cruz Angeles and featuring a stellar cast, Don't Let Me Drown was a Grand Jury Prize nominee at the Sundance Film Festival and has won the Audience Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival along with the awards for Jury Prize and Best Editing at the Woodstock Film Festival. Available at an SRP of $14.98 for the DVD.

    Two Brooklyn teenagers personally affected by the World Trade Center tragedy find comfort with each other. Though their families differ in ethnicity, Lalo and Stefanie find joy in all they share in common as life slowly returns to normal in their gritty but tightly knit neighborhood. Over their parents’ objections, their friendship grows as they discover the healing power of love.
     

    Starring Ricardo Chavira (Desperate Housewives, Piranha 3D), Emmy nominee E.J. Bonilla (Guiding Light, Law & Order), and Gina Torres (Huge, Angel, Firefly) Don't Let Me Drown is a poignant, moving tale of two Latino teens learning that sometimes the only thing that can keep them from drowning is love.

    I've always enjoyed Gina Torres in her TV roles (and Serenity). I've heard that this was pretty good.

    I would initially worry about this being a "downer" .... but with some critical acclaim it may actually be pretty interesting.

    I love it when filmmakers take a truly horrific event and retell it on a more personal, intimate scale. It brings the audience - well, me, anyway - closer to the experience. I'd really like to see this.

    Just an FYI we were given three copies to give away by Image. I'll draw three names at random from everyone who posts in this thread between now and Friday October 8th. Must be over 18 and have a US or Canadian address to win.

    Sounds interesting. I hadn't heard of this movie before. Is there a Blu-Ray version of this or just DVD?

    Just sent it- thanks! Never one to turn down a free DVD, thanks to the first winners who apparently didn't want it!
