Amos & Andrew
The satirical farce Amos & Andrew stars Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) as Andrew Sterling, a renowned black playwright who has no idea what's in store when he purchases a home in a predominantly white suburban enclave. Suspected as a burglar while moving in, he finds himself on the receiving end of the law in a show of f-rce more in line with a hostage situation.
Realizing what could become a public relations nightmare, the police chief (Dabney Coleman, Nine To Five) strong-arms hapless car thief Amos (Nicolas Cage, Leaving Las Vegas) into holding Andrew hostage, the outcome of which will ultimately show the town's true stripes. Written and directed by E. Max Frye (screenwriter of Something Wild and Foxcatcher), Amos & Andrew co-stars Michael Lerner (The Mod Squad), Margaret Colin (Independence Day) and Brad Dourif (One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest).
