Earlier this week, I came across a trailer for the independent feature film, Interwoven, starring Academy Award winning actress Mo’Nique.
Directed by VW Scheich and co-written by Uyen K. Le, the film examines the human condition and delves deeply into questions of life and death, and love and loss while exploring the mystery and meaning of life. It’s comprised of fifteen real life stories from people struggling with love, loss, homelessness, alcoholism, betrayal and suicidal tendencies, and explores the big and small moments in life, in which strangers impact another person in ways they couldn’t possibly imagine.
Every character in the film is based off of someone who is living, and every person has a story that is interconnected in the same vein of the 2004 ensemble feature drama Crash.
“This is the first time that I play someone who is living and I want to make sure that I’m telling her truth.” – Mo’Nique
Flix Premiere (known as the world’s first online Cineplex) picked up exclusive distribution rights for the film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The film was part of the latest round of Flix Premiere’s movie acquisitions for exclusive distribution on the company’s theater-on-demand platform, and will become available at the time of Flix Premiere’s global launch.
Mo’Nique can be seen next on the big screen in the Universal Pictures Christmas comedy titled Almost Christmas directed by David E. Talbert’s where she will star alongside Gabrielle Union, Nicole Ari Parker, JB Smooth, Regina King, Omar Epps, and Danny Glover.
