Moving into a new neighborhood can be a stressful experience. But moving into a new neighborhood and finding out you're the only interracial couple on the block -- well, that can be an experience you won't soon forget.
Check out the trailer for "Little Boxes," an indie comedy starring Melanie Lynskey (star of Netflix's Sundance-winner "I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore") and Nelsan Ellis (from HBO's hit vampire series "True Blood") as an interracial married couple who have just moved into a small suburban town with their 11-year-old biracial son (played by Armani Jackson; "Grey's Anatomy").
Directed by Rob Meyer (A Birder's Guide to Everything) and written by Annie Howell (Small Beautifully Moving Parts), the film is basically a fish-outta-water comedy about a mixed-race family trying to fit into their new small town surroundings, only to realize that they can't help but feel out of place.
Produced by "True Detective: Season 1" director Cary Joji Fukunaga and "La La Land" producer Jordan Horowitz, "Little Boxes" co-stars Janeane Garofalo, Christine Taylor, Oona Laurence, and Nadia Dajani. The film premiered last year at the Tribeca Film Festival. It's now slated for an April 14th theatrical release.
An interracial family struggles to adjust when they move from New York City to a small, predominately white town in Washington State.
