Four has received much acclaim on the film festival circuit, including the 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival, where the film's four stars jointly won the festival's acting award; the 2012 Urbanworld Film Festival where the film took home the award for Best Narrative Film; and the 2012 New Orleans Film Festival where it received Honorable Mention in the Narrative Feature Category.
A steamy July 4th night brings four people together in two tales of seduction and conflicted desire. Joe (Wendell Pierce) is a black, middle-aged, married man out on date with June (Emory Cohen), a young white man he met on the Internet. Abigayle (Aja Naomi King) is Joe's precocious daughter, out herself with a hot, wisecracking Latino basketball player named Dexter (E.J. Bonilla). As the two couples get to know each other intimately, their realities are tested and the outcome is bracing.
Four has a runtime of 75 minutes and is rated "R" for sexual content, language and brief drug use.
