Filmbuff has posted up a new trailer for Rob Meyer‘s upcoming dramatic comedy Little Boxes, starring Melanie Lynskey, Nelsan Ellis, Armani Jackson, Oona Laurence, and Janeane Garofalo.
The film stars Armani Jackson as a biracial kid who moves from New York City to an entirely caucasian town. Little Boxes premiered at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival and will be opening in theaters and VOD platforms April 14th.
It’s the summer before 6th grade, and Clark (Jackson) is the new biracial kid in a very white town. Discovering that to be cool he needs to act ‘more black’, he fumbles to meet expectations. Meanwhile, his urban intellectual parents Mack (Ellis) and Gina (Lynskey) try to adjust to small-town living. Accustomed to life in New York, the tight-knit family is ill-prepared for the drastically different set of obstacles that their new community presents. They soon find themselves struggling to understand themselves and each other in this new context.
