Story


A Golden Bear nominee from the 2011 Berlin Film Festival and Official Selection of the SXSW and Deauville American Film Festivals, Yelling to the Sky stars Zoe Kravitz (X-Men: First Class; the forthcoming Mad Max: Fury Road; M. Night Shymalan's After Earth) as Sweetness O'Hara, an introspective and shy teenager who tries to blend into the crowded halls of her high school. But an increasingly complex home life and a growing threat at school soon carry her into a world of reckless ambivalence.

A visceral coming-of-age story, Yelling to the Sky features a sobering, breakthrough performance from Kravitz, with an all-star supporting cast including Jason Clarke (The Chicago Code; Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty; Baz Lurhman's The Great Gatsby); Gabourey Sidibe (Best Actress nominee for Precious; The Big C; Tower Heist); Tim Blake Nelson (Lincoln; O Brother, Where Art Thou?) and Antonique Smith (Notorious).

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..little more than a resume film for all involved, it certainly feels more Park City than Bushwick..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]
“..a prosaic look at a hard life. Like Sweetness, the movie finds its way by instinct..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
“..feels like a cup-half-full response to that bleak inner-city fable, with a stunningly beautiful fair-skinned black teen slowly awakening to the prospects of what's ahead if she doesn't find a way out of her neighborhood..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
