The Bahamas is an intoxicating paradise filled with danger and despair in the trailer for "Live Cargo," a black-and-white arthouse thriller starring Keith Stanfield (the breakout star of Donald Glover's FX series "Atlanta" and co-star of Jordan Peele's hit horror movie "Get Out").
Stanfield stars alongside fashion model-turned-actress Dree Hemingway (daughter of actress Mariel Hemingway and great-granddaughter of author Ernest Hemingway) as an American couple who, in the wake of a recent family tragedy, travels to the Bahamas to reset their lives, only to be drawn into an exotic world of dark uncertainties.
Logan Sandler, who co-wrote the script with Thymaya Payne, makes his feature directorial debut with "Live Cargo," which received mostly good notices when the film premiered the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.
Co-starring Sam Dillon (Boyhood) and Robert Wisdom (HBO's The Wire), "Live Cargo" will be coming to theaters and VOD later this month, on March 31st.
After an unspeakable tragedy, grieving couple Nadine (Dree Hemingway) and Lewis (Lakeith Stanfield) retreat to a remote island in the Bahamas where Nadine grew up vacationing. They're soon caught up in an ongoing conflict between Roy (Robert Wisdom), the island's aging patriarch, and Doughboy (Sam Dillon), a dangerous human trafficker using stolen boats to transport Haitians to the US.
