St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 26, 2013
STL the Movie, coming to a theater near you in September 2013, is a drama inspired by Menace II Society. The director, Arturo Smith of Niya films, introduces life growing up in one of America's most dangerous cities: St. Louis, Missouri.
The movie takes place in several St. Louis areas that experience drug trafficking and gun violence. This film contains gritty, cutthroat, and heart-wrenching plot twists that keep the viewer engrossed in the story until the very end. The screenwriter and star of the movie, Clentis (J-Wha) White gives a breathtaking performance portraying Jay living on the mean streets of St.Louis. The cast includes YC St. Louis, Brittany J, Bo Dean, Guddah Goon, and Jessica Ivory. This a powerful and gripping story, not glorifying a violent lifestyle or St. Louis' status as one of the most dangerous cities in America—but chronicling the trials and tribulations young black Americans face on a daily basis.
