Happy Wednesday MMT Fam! As promised (for those following the Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages), here’s the advance screening giveaway post for CONCRETE COWBOY – the upcoming Netflix release filmed locally by Philly’s own first-time filmmaker/director and co-writer Ricky Staub. The film stars Idris Elba (Cats), Caleb McLaughlin (Stranger Things), and Jharrel Jerome (Selah and the Spades). The screening will take place on Wednesday, March 31.
Here’s the official synopsis: When fifteen year-old Cole (Caleb McLaughlin) is expelled from school in Detroit, he is sent to North Philadelphia to live with Harp (Idris Elba), his estranged father. Harp finds solace in rehabilitating horses for inner city cowboys at the Fletcher Street Stables, a real-life black urban horsemanship community that has provided a safe haven for the neighborhood residents for more than 100 years. Torn between his growing respect for his father’s community and his reemerging friendship with troubled cousin Smush (Jharrel Jerome), Cole begins to reprioritize his life as the stables themselves are threatened by encroaching gentrification.
