Watch: Clips from The Anticipated Flick ‘Kicks’
Kicks is a coming-of-age story told in a new, refreshing light.
Starring Jahking Guillory, Christopher Meyer, CJ Wallace, Kofi Siriboe and Mahershala Ali, Kicks story centers on a Brandon (Guillory), a young teen who embarks on a life changing journey while trying to disguise his impoverished reality. Owning a fly pair of Jordans is part of his plan to boost confidence. Unfortunately, rocking a pair on his feet, draws adverse attention and the war between adolescence and manhood begins.
“It’s not even really about the shoes,” said Kofi Siriboe who plays Guillory’s nemesis “Flaco” in Kicks. “It’s about the hyper-masculinity and everybody trying to claim their turf and not really knowing how to call it quits.”
The film aims to deliver an intriguing story in a way that people haven’t received it before.
