I’d never heard of that movie before, either, but The Power of Few has my full attention. The trailer has been going around the net these past few days featuring Hollywood’s favorite grandpa Christopher Walken, Christian Slater, Anthony Anderson, Moon Bloodgood, Q’orianka Kilcher, and Jesse Bradford.
An interconnected crime story comes from the first time writer/director Leone Marucci. The some sort of multi-perspective crime caper doesn’t seem to have a release date in the US at this point.
The film was reportedly shot in New Orleans, where an outreach strategy created opportunities for young locals, homeless people and senior citizens to join the cast and the crew. The producers of The Power of Few collaborated with associations like Volunteers of America and The Covenant House of New Orleans to hire local veterans and homeless people, young and old, to be part of their cast and crew.
The Power of Few breaks barriers of conventional filmmaking, redefines the meaning of interactivity and social networking, with a killer score by Mike Simpson (Fight Club), and a magical girl from the ghetto called Few, played by newcomer Tione Johnson.
Stop what you’re doing and watch the trailer below.
Here’s the plot:
Spies, cops, holy fools and well-armed children cross paths on a day of danger, mystery and possible transformation. ‘The Power of Few’ unfolds over twenty minutes on one New Orleans afternoon, experienced through the lives of five unusual characters who unknowingly are connected to an extraordinary smuggling operation as religious conspiracy collides with urban crime.
