COVER – Exclusive Video Interviews

     February 21, 2008

Opening this Friday (in very limited release) is “Cover,” the new movie directed by Bill Duke. Here’s the synopsis:

When Valerie Maas (Aunjanue Ellis) and her husband Dutch (Raz Adoti) decide to relocate their family to Philadelphia for his career, everything seems perfect. While Valerie must leave her job in Atlanta as a commercial photographer, she is able to work as a portraitist for her friend Zahara Milton (Vivica A. Fox) and the family quickly settles into life in their newly adopted city and the upper echelon of Philadelphia‘s African-American community.

As Dutch is less available with his new job, Valerie begins to question her husband’s fidelity. Then, an unexpected tip-off results in a shattering discovery that threatens to destroy Valerie and everything that she holds dear. With a New Years Eve shooting resulting in murder, Valerie now finds herself as the prime suspect, facing off against a veteran detective (Louis Gossett, JR.), with only her strength of character and her stalwart faith to help her escape alive from this unthinkable ordeal.

So to help promote the movie, a new Collider contributor named Brian Sebastian managed to sit down with some of the cast to talk about the movie. Both interviews are posted below. And if you want to watch some movie clips from “Cover,” click here.
